The expert who became the first human to reach the bottom of the hell well tells the creatures that live in the Yemen Hell Well
Netgenz - Technology | Oman Cave Exploitation (OCET) researchers have succeeded in becoming the first humans on Earth to reach the bottom of the Hell Well and find creatures living in the Barhout Well in Yemen. The Well of Hell or the Well of Barhout is near the Yemeni border with Oman in the eastern province of Al-Mahra. It is a place of mystery that has long been the subject of many mythologies and folk narratives.
Eight of the 10 people who joined the OCET tracking team have reached the bottom of the Barghouti Well using a pulley mechanism that lowers eight members down while the two marks are still at the top.
When they arrived at the bottom of the cave, the team did not just explore, the team collected samples of water, rock and soil, and some dead animals. "We collected samples of water, rock, soil,,,, and some dead animals but haven't studied them yet," said Mohammed al-Kindi, a professor of geology at the German College of Technology in Oman who was part of the OCET team.
Creatures that live in Hell's Well
Through the folk tales that are spread, it is called if the Well of Hell as a prison for several demons and jinn. This is because residents say there is often a strange smell from the well. However, some researchers have reported seeing snakes, frogs, and beetles in the cave mechanism. Besides that, there were a lot of dead animals, especially birds that seemed to have fallen in the hole.
"They [snakes] breed when there are no predators to consume them. That's normal," said Al-Kindi. Furthermore, some researchers explain the birds can still fly in and out of the hole. Even though the sun's light is actually said to not be able to enter all sides of the hole. If you look from the edge of the well, only a little can be seen.
In addition to finding animals, Al-Kindi explained that he and his team found a waterfall in a cave and drank water there. Even though hell wells are popular with dogma as "evil" caves and the water is dangerous to drink. "We even drank a full bottle and nothing happened to us!" he said.
Pearl of Goa
When the OCET team descended into the hole, they came upon an uneven and jagged floor covered in stalagmites, some of which reached a height of 30 feet (9 m). Parts of the floor are covered in cave pearls, which are a type of speleothems. "They [cave pearls] are created from dripping or gushing water as concentric mineral arrangements, generally around a nucleus," Leslie Melim, a geologist at Western Illinois University who specializes in cave pearls, told Live Science. 9). Melim explained that cave pearls are rare and can only grow at the bottom of the cave which is really flat so the tree doesn't move.
Local dogma about the Hell's Well
The Hell's Well or Berhout's Well is a place of mystery that has long been the subject of many mythologies and folk narratives. Through folk tales, it is called if the place is a prison for some demons. The call led to a foul smell coming out of the well. Over the past hundred years, folk narratives have spread. It is said that there was a genie and a supernatural figure who occupied the bottom of the well. "Some people say there are some apostates and some people who don't believe are tortured after death," said a geologist and owner of the Earth Knowledge Discussion Center, as quoted from The National, Tuesday (21/9). Some people believe that if they get too close, the hole can draw people into it, others claim that the gaping hole is a supervolcano that could destroy Earth.
How the Well of Hell Was Formed
"There are different types of sinkholes, the most common being sinkholes and sinkholes," said Philip van Beynen, a sinkhole expert at the University of South Florida. A sinkhole is created when the bedrock cavity on the surface expands so much that the roof above it is no longer supported, and the rock and sediment above it suddenly collapses into the cave. A sinkhole occurs when surface sediment slowly drips into a small cavity below the ground until stress or sinkhole is created.
Both depend on a particular type of landscape, known as karst, which is identified by carbonate bedrock such as limestone and dolomite, which dissolves in the water and towards the cave. However, van Beynen explains that it is difficult to pinpoint exactly how or when sinkholes were created. The Well of Hell being tracked is on the Yemeni border with Oman in the eastern province of Al-Mahra. The wellbore was found to have a width of 30 meters and a depth of more than 100 meters. underground. The age of the Barhout well is not known, but Yemeni officials have said this well has been around for millions of years, according to LiveScience. Until whatever is under this well is predicted to be millions of years old.
