Antarctica, a snow and ice-covered continent with no permanent human population, is at the center of heated debate due to a mysterious triangular structure seen in satellite images. Social media users are baffled and debating the origin of this supposed ‘pyramid.’ 

The images revealed a large pyramid-shaped mass in Antarctica’s Ellsworth Mountain range. In the same area, other strange-looking peaks were found, with one resembling Egypt’s Great Pyramid of Giza in its dimensions.

The discovery of this massive mountain in a remote location has sparked wonder and curiosity among people. 

As the images of these ‘pyramids’ circulated on social media, various theories emerged to explain the existence of these structures. Many wonder how this structure ended up in Antarctica.

Its existence has led to speculations about whether it is a natural formation or a man-made construction, adding to the mystery. Social media has been abuzz with images and discussions, with some suggesting extraterrestrial origins. However, others argue that these structures might be of human origin, possibly concealed for millennia.

Unravelling the Mystery

The scientists have shed light on the puzzling structure, clarifying that it is known as a ‘pyramidal peaked mountain’. This feature is typical of glaciated areas. The explanation dispels the mystery surrounding the structure.

“The peaks are clearly composed of rock, and it’s a coincidence that this particular peak has that shape,” said Dr Mitch Darcy, a geologist at the German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam.

“It’s not a complicated shape, so it’s not a special coincidence either. By definition, it is a nunatak, which is simply a peak of rock sticking out above a glacier or an ice sheet. This one has the shape of a pyramid, but that doesn’t make it a human construction,” Darcy added.
