Naica’s Deadly Crystal Caves
Posted by pwl on April 20, 2009
A team of scientists explore a Mexican cave filled with giant crystals; some of the largest ever discovered. With temperatures near 120 degrees and over 80 percent humidity, the cave [, in the Naica Mine,] is one of the deadliest environments on earth.
The movie “The Core” got it right!!! Giant underground crystal caves!!! Ok, well sort of… heat… space suits… lava… not a geode but close enough for fun…
Favorite lines from The Core: “What would it take you to get it done in three months?” … “Oh, 50 Billion dollars, I don’t know…” … “Will you take a cheque?” … “Why don’t you use a credit card, you’d get miles?” … “hmmm.”
