Just below the surface

So apparently scientist have been looking a little deeper these days and have come up with what could be considered two really BIG discoveries.

This first article, “Scientists Discover a 400 Mile Canyon Below Greenland Ice Sheet” by Lori Zimmer over at Inhabitat, talks about a canyon twice the length of the Grand Canyon. The one limiting factor for scientist however, is the fact that it’s located under a glacier nearly two miles deep.

The other article, “Largest Volcano on Earth Lurks Beneath Pacific Ocean” by Becky Oskin over at LiveScience, is about exactly what it says, the largest volcano on earth.  You know it’s big when it’s in a class by itself.

Wow!
