A colossal whirlpool the size of a state appeared near the coast of South Africa, leaving scientists scratching their heads because they couldn’t find any explanation regarding its unfamiliar features.
The surface of our planet is mostly covered with water, about 71 percent to be more precise. This abundance of aquatic mass remains mostly unexplored, leaving plenty of room to speculate what could reside on the depths of this world’s oceans.
To visualize the tremendous watery proportions held by this planet, we must first think of the oceans which hold about 96.5 percent of all Earth’s water. That sounds really vast, doesn’t it? But besides this staggering chunk of water, there is still 3.5 percent that can be found in the air as water vapors, in lakes and rivers, icecaps and glaciers, underground as soil moisture or rapid streams, and last but not least, inside of every living creature.
With these numbers at hand, it’s easy to understand that the perfect hiding spot for anyone or anything that doesn’t want to be discovered is underwater. Since the Cold War, considerable portions below the oceans were studded with hydrophones by both the U.S. and Russia, and there’s a certain rumor speaking of fiber optics cables spread across the ocean floor before they were even put in place for public use.
Knowing this you might think that there’s no secrecy left down there, but the tremendous amount of water speaks in favor of dominant seclusion. Well, at least for those of us who are not involved with the military or other secret governmental facilities.
