of live science Report According to, researchers discovered this blue hole in September last year. Although its data was not released. Scientists believe that this pit or blue hole was caused by an asteroid hitting the Earth. The same asteroid that caused the ‘Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event’ on Earth. It is believed that three-fourths of the Earth’s flora and fauna disappeared forever in this event that took place 66 million years ago. Dinosaurs had also become extinct.
The eyes of scientists were on this place for the past many years. With the help of scuba drivers, water samples, echo-sound surveys, etc., researchers found that its surface area is 13,690 square meters, with a steep slope of 80 degrees. It was also found that the mouth of the Blue Hole is 5 meters below the sea level, where the water changes significantly due to temperature fluctuations.
The study related to research has been published in the journal Frontiers in Marine Science. It has been told in the report that the researchers now want to study the microbial diversity of the water of this blue hole. They may also get some clues about the events that happened in the past. It is noteworthy that millions of years ago, dinosaurs were found on our earth. Scientists have believed that the destruction that took place on the earth after an asteroid collision, erased the name of this enormous species from the earth.
Blue holes are limestone caves at the bottom of the ocean. Their surface looks muddy, but there may be a lot hidden beneath it.
