Which is the most mysterious spot on Earth?

Antarctica is considered the most mysterious area on Earth.

We find this place so fascinating. Because it is unlike any place on Earth.

It is difficult to access because it is remote and extremely isolated. However, there's more to this location than meets the eye.

You will also find some of the oddest wildlife species in this natural wonder.

Let's find out how this mysterious destination became so famous.

Antarctica: The South Pole

Antarctica is named for no one. Some believe it is "land of the ice". Some believe it means "land of ice". Others believe it is Greek mythology.

Antarktis was an ancient Greek name that was given to the island where Zeus and his twin brothers, Zeus. According to legend, one twin was born in winter. Hence, the word antarctic.

Others think the name came from the Greek words anti, meaning against, and tropos meaning turn. This would mean land turned away from the sun.

No matter the reason, Antarctica is a place that has always fascinated people.

It is the coldest, windiest, driest and highest continent. It is too cold for trees, plants and animals.

Yet, life is abundant in this frozen wilderness.

It is home to approximately 90 percent of all life on Earth. You can find approximately half the world's species of animal and plant plants here.

And what makes Antarctica such a unique environment? Here, water freezes in ice rather that vaporizing into the atmosphere.

This causes large masses to form of ice which float high above the ground.

These floating glaciers cover 80% of the continent. These glaciers are getting larger each year.

So far, the Antarctic ice sheet has grown 60 feet since 1960.

If the melting goes on, the sea level may rise by as much as 200 feet. This could lead to massive flooding across the globe.

This does not mean that everyone is wrong. Some scientists claim that global warming could be good for us. According to scientists, global warming could be good for us because the melting of the ice sheets will accelerate, which can lead to floods that release toxic chemicals into our soil and bodies.

Others, however, warn that this theory sounds almost like a plot for a science fiction film.

What is the most secretive town in the world?

The answer to that question may shock you. It might even make you uncomfortable because it challenges our perception of reality and how we live. There is a reason this place exists and it's not as you might expect.

It was known as the City of God to the ancient Greeks. It was called the City of Destruction by the Bible.

It's known in India as Kashi (Kashmir). It's known in Russia as Novgorod.

It's called The Town That Has Disappeared here in America.

One small community in western New York State with 1,200 residents vanished without a trace. No bodies, cars, houses, nothing was left behind except a road sign pointing to its former location.

The little village vanished, with no trace of its existence. Some say it was swallowed up by the Earth. Others claim that a meteorite hit destroyed it. Others believe that aliens took it.

Whatever happened, the residents of this once-thriving community are convinced that their town isn't gone forever. They had just moved to a new town.

There's even a website that tracks the disappearances and recoveries of Zugspitz.

Then, where is it? It's in Switzerland.

Zugspitze lies on the border between Austria and Germany. Lake Zugspitze lies just above the summit of the mountain.

It has always fascinated me that so many towns have disappeared, yet some still remain. Is it possible that some towns disappear and others are preserved? I decided that I would investigate.

I wanted more information about the mysterious disappearing of towns. What causes a community to disappear? How can one place vanish from existence?

It turns out that there are several theories about the phenomenon of vanishing towns. One theory is that a city disappears after all buildings have been demolished. Another theory says that the town just moves. A third theory claims that the town never existed at all.

No matter what theories you may have, there is no doubt that many towns across the globe were swallowed by the ground. This video looks into the history of those places and investigates their current status.

How does the brain control the functions of your body?

The brain sends messages to other organs and muscles to ensure they work together. Your body's functions are controlled by your brain. It tells your stomach to digest food and your lungs to breathe air; it tells your arms and legs to move.

Your brain is made up of billions upon billions of nerve cells that are connected together in groups called neuronal groups. Action potentials are electrical signals that neurons send to one another. Each neuron has a cell membrane surrounding its nucleus. The cell membrane houses channels that allow ions, such as potassium and sodium, to enter and exit the cells. Ion movement creates the electric charge that causes the neuron to fire.

When a neuron is activated, neurotransmitters release chemicals into the space between it and the next neuron. Neurotransmitters can bind to receptors at the second neuron. They open ions channels, allowing ions to move in and outside of the channel. This causes the second neuron to fire too.

When a presynaptic nerve receives an impulse, neurotransmitter release takes place. An impulse travels along a synaptic link between the two neuron. The transmitter binds to the receptors on the postsynaptic neural cell, which triggers the firing of that neuron.

They are vital for the communication between nerve cells. They coordinate activity between the different parts of your brain.

What is the most interesting fact about the human body?

We have two eyes, two ears, two nostrils, four limbs, a mouth, a nose, and a penis. Yes, more than 50 parts to our bodies. But one thing is missing. A heart.

The heart is a pump which circulates blood throughout the body. The blood moves through the veins. It transports oxygen and nutrients to your cells. It also removes carbon dioxide.

The heart pumps about 5 liters blood per minute. This is equivalent of an adult drinking 2 to 3 cups of coffee each day.

The heart is constantly pumping blood, 24 hours a week, 365 day a year. Your heart beats nearly 100 times a minute while sleeping.

Because of the color and texture of their skin, you can tell if someone is healthy or sick. The capillaries are tiny blood vessels that can be seen on the skin's surface. These tiny vessels transport blood from the larger blood vessels to the heart. The skin turns purple or blue when there is a blockage in blood flow.

People with sickle cells lack red blood cell. Their blood becomes sticky and hardens, causing them to become very ill.

Bandages are used to stop bleeding after you have cut yourself. Blood must continue to flow to allow the wounds to heal properly. To do this, doctors will insert a needle through your skin into the vein adjacent to the injury. This allows the blood to drain from the injured area.

Doctors can also insert catheters into the artery close to the area where the bloodclot has formed. This keeps the patient occupied until the clot is broken down naturally.


  • The average human adult male heart rate is between 70 and 72 beats per minute, while the average for adult women is between 78 and 82 beats, which is significantly faster, according to 2014 published in the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research. (romper.com)
  • In one 2014 study published in the Archives of Medical Science that sought to study the prevalence of these mites, research showed that 41% of the people had them hanging out in their eyelashes. (romper.com)
  • A 2012 paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reported that people blink about 15 to 20 times each minute, meaning, if you do the math, you spend about 10% of the time that you're awake blinking. (romper.com)
  • "It is estimated that 75% of people have at least mild gum disease, with the most common symptoms being bleeding when brushing, bad breath, and dark and swollen gums," Dr. Ron Baise, a London-based dentist, tells Romper. (romper.com)
  • According to a 2018 study published in Free Radical Biology & Medicine, this is because blood pressure is regulated by our innate circadian rhythm and internal clock. (romper.com)
