(Yahoo)   You'd think that by now, what with spy sattelites and all, there really weren't any great geographic suprises left on earth, like say, an undiscovered canyon bigger than the Grand Canyon in Az; but then, you'd be wrong   (news.yahoo.com) divider line 41

I'm pretty sure satellites aren't capable of taking pictures through 1.5 miles of thick ice cover, subby.

True, but the idea that there are massive geographical features left on earth to discover, Ice covered or not, is a strangely cheering prospect

A dramatic gash

Off to a great start and then I was disappointed.

Is this the Starkweather-Moore expedition that was begged not to go back to those mountains of madness?

Will no one learn from horror fiction?

Actually, it was rather small until just recently, when we pissed it off. Then it got much bigger.

This. The article became a lot less interesting when I found out it was in Antarctica. It could be 1000x as big, but we'll never see it because it's covered up with friggin' ice. That, and it's in Antarctica.

I'd hazard that there are more undiscovered than discovered.

/ocean floor is remarkably unexplored

Greenland's ice melt accelerated at an unprecedented rate earlier this month. Most of it melted over four days.

Never say never.

Well at the current rate of global warming this place will be a tourist attraction in the next few years.

I thought they found it in Arizona. Well of course they didn't know it was under the ice! That's where megatron is!

I'm sure the DoD knew about this years ago. They're sitting on gobs of gravitational measurements all designed to improve MIRV accuracy.

/Science? bah

Fact #1 Ya know those stunning images from the far reaches of space that the Hublle telescope has captured? The Hublle is basically nothing more than a re-purposed Keyhole Spy satelite that's pointing outwards into space instead of down at earth.

Fact #2 the Keyhole was obsolete 20 years ago and two new generation of spy satellites have been built since then

ergo

I don't put anything past the most recent generation of spy sats
