Well To Hell: World's Deepest Hole Where Dead Souls Were Heard Crying Out From (Photos)

In the 1960s, researchers in the Soviet Union began an ambitious drilling project whose goal was to penetrate the Earth’s upper crust and sample the warm, mysterious area where the crust.

Russian scientists had to invent new ways of drilling, and some of their new methods proved quite inventive. But despite the valiant effort which spanned several decades, the Russians never reached their goal, and many of the Earth’s secrets were left undiscovered. 

The work done by the Soviets did, however, provide a plethora of information about what lies just beneath the surface, and it continues to be scientifically useful today. The project is known as the Kola Superdeep Borehole.

The kola superdeep borehole was dug by the Soviets in an attempt to break the current record for the deepest hole ever dug. A man-made crater is the deepest artificial point on the planet. The 40,230-foot-deep hole (12.2-kilometer-deep) construction is so deep that residents claim to have heard the screams of tortured souls. Surely, it could be hell. The Earth's mantle may have Hell in it. Make comments in the space below.

In other people's minds, they believe it's the gateway to hell. As a result of numerous difficulties, including the difficulty of drilling into the Earth's mantle, it took nearly 20 years to complete the hole; but it only reached one-third of the mantle's depth. The project was brought to a halt at the last minute.

And yes, after microphones were placed in the hole, screaming crowds could be heard. We heard Voices like souls Tortured in Hell- what happened when the Deepest hole was Dug.
