Turkmenistan’s Door To Hell

Engineers in Turkmenistan accidentally tapped a hole that ate up their rig and soon found out what they tapped was filled with Methane gas. They decided to light up the hole so that the gas could not harm the atmosphere. They thought the gas would run out in time and that the fire hole would subside.

Forty years had past, and the hole is still burning as of date in the desert of Turkmenistan.
