Movile cave has been isolated for millions of years.Internal harmful gases in the air, but it is home to many strange creatures.
this cave has been closed for over 5.5 million years, in 1986, scientists in a few miles away from the black sea coast, to find the best place to build geothermal power plant, found the caves in the area.They didn't expect to find the planet's most mysterious cave.The air hole with outside air.The oxygen concentration is only 1/3 to 1/2 of the outside air, and it is home to many strange creatures.
experts in this mysterious caves isolated in 5.5 million, found that 48 species.
imagine you came across a cave, it closed in 5.5 million, is expected to be in there to find you?
basically, it is the perfect Hollywood series and movies about the "world" in the world.But imagination and reality is always separated by a line.
this is what experts explore Movile caves happened, this is the organic chemicals in the world (can synthesis effect chemosynthesis) world.
this cave is located in the southeast Romania, near the black sea.In the ground of the mysterious "alien world," closed for more than 5.5 million years.
as scientists say, the air inside the cave is very different with the outside air.Oxygen concentration of oxygen in the hole is an external 1/3 to 1/2 (oxygen for 7-10% in the hole, hole 21% oxygen, carbon dioxide levels in the hole is 100 times more (is 2-3.5% of carbon dioxide in the hole, the hole outside the carbon dioxide is 0.03%).Cave and 1-2% methane (CH4), air and water is rich in hydrogen sulfide (H2S) and ammonia (NH3)
this cave was romanian scientist Cristian Lascu find.
enter the cave is a very dangerous thing.Visitors stayed in the hole (5 or 6 hours, otherwise their kidneys will go wrong.
this is can enter the mysterious world, as long as you go along very narrow down the mine, climb over the limestone of loess tunnel, this will eventually lead to another tunnel, it is completely dark, temperature of 25 degrees Celsius.
the ecosystem in the cave is very striking.
experts found 48 species, were the leech, spiders, water and other insects that are found in the cave, with 33 species are endemic species here.Hole in the food chain is based solely on methane oxidizing bacteria (methane oxidizing bacteria), sulfur oxidizing bacteria (sulfur oxidizing bacteria) based on the change to synthetic effect of.
as the BBC, in 2010, a microbiologist at the Rich Boden at Britain's University of Warwick coventry city (University of Warwick), he became a 29 people visit the cave.
Boden now at the University of Plymouth (University of Plymouth), he said: "it was very hot, and very damp, so feel hot than actually, in a uniform, wearing a helmet, of course, can let a person more hot."
"the pool water and sulfides, send out a rotten eggs or burning rubber smell, because when you stir it, will release hydrogen sulfide."
