Chinese scientists began mysteriously digging a hole 10,000 meters deep into Earth’s crust – and no one exactly knows why. One of the participants explained that it was an attempt to explore our planet.
Although no one is sure of the motive, the fact that drilling began yesterday (Tuesday, May 30) in the Xinjiang region The richest in oil, may indicate the reason since China’s economy is the second largest in the world and is trying to escape from the front. It is known that in searches of this type, the site may be found Mineral resources and energy Deep below the surface of the earth, and especially when the pit is about to reach the depth of a rock that dates back 145 million years.
Wang Chunsheng, a technical expert for the operation, said the drilling at a depth of over 10,000 meters is a bold attempt to explore the unknown territory of the Earth. “The construction difficulty of the drilling project can be compared to a large truck traveling on two thin steel cables,” he said.
The initiative comes in the same week that China sent its first civilian astronaut into space, and just after the completion of an offshore drilling rig designed to mine the geological reserves of natural gas.
