'Pyramid' in Antarctica sparks debates and conspiracy theories

Antarctica—The Land of no living settlement recently found itself amid heated debate when satellite images revealed an unknown ‘pyramid’ in between the abode of snow. In the satellite images of the Ellsworth Mountain range, which lies in the southern part of Antarctica, the huge pyramid-shaped mass was spotted.

The social media users were shocked and started discussing conspiracy theories and possibilities. An unknown strange ‘pyramid’ structure was discovered with one measuring two kilometers in every direction of its square base, which is similar to Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza.

How people reacted to the discovery:

After the revelation of images, Taking to microblogging platform X, the new version of Twitter, one user stated, “Wait, how did they move the pyramids from Egypt to Antarctica?”

Some users went into the topic of conspiracy theories naming the pyramid as a structural symbol of “The Illuminati”, “a secret society”. While some expressed their views by saying, “This is the proof that a civilization existed and lived in Antarctica as it used to be warm before”

Scientists explain ‘pyramidal peaked mountain’:

The scientists said that it is a feature of glaciated areas which is called a ‘pyramidal peaked mountain’ while explaining the strange event.

“The pyramid-shaped structures are located in the Ellsworth Mountains, which is a range more than 400 km long, so it’s no surprise there are rocky peaks cropping out above the ice. The peaks are clearly composed of rock, and it’s a coincidence that this particular peak has that shape,” said Dr. Mitch Darcy, a geologist at the German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam, while speaking to IFLScience.

“It’s not a complicated shape, so it’s not a special coincidence either. By definition, it is a nunatak, which is simply a peak of rock sticking out above a glacier or an ice sheet. This one has the shape of a pyramid, but that doesn’t make it a human construction,” Darcy added.

Argentina-sized amount of sea ice missing

Meanwhile, in the Southern Hemisphere, amid the record-breaking summer, the sea ice did not return to anywhere near the expected levels. Since recordkeeping started 45 years ago, it remained at the lowest level at this time of the year.

The National Snow and Ice Data Centre (NSIDC) said that the ice was around 1.6 million square kilometers (0.6 million square miles) below the previous winter’s lowest record set in 2022. The sea ice was 2.6 million square kilometers (1 million square miles) below the 1981 to 2010 average in Antarctica in July.

This is equal to the size of Argentina or the combined areas of Texas, California, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, and Colorado. Glaciologist at the University of Colorado Boulder Ted Scambos said, “The game has changed. There’s no sense talking about the odds of it happening the way the system used to be, it’s clearly telling us that the system has changed.”
