This is a discussion thread for the following file:<br><br><b><a href=http://www.gearthhacks.com/dlfile31031/The-Door-To-Hell.htm>The Door To Hell</a></b><br><br>The Door To Hell is a gas crater. A Soviet gas exploration accident in the 1950ís. It was created when a Soviet drilling rig was drilling for natural gas fell into an underground cavern resulting in a crater which today measures roughly 60 meters in diameter and 20 meters deep. The huge crater was set alight shortly after being discovered and has been burning ever sinse. The recognizable smell of burning natural gas can be detected from a distance and becomes quite strong as you near the hot edge of the crater.<br />
Through GE, we can recognize the orange fire in the hole. Amazing!<br />
