Random Legends of ‘Well To Hell’ That Is A Russian Borehole

  • In 1989, Russian Scientists Drilled A 50,000-Foot Hole Into A Peninsula And Broke Into A Cavity on Random Legends of ‘Well To Hell’ That Is A Russian Borehole

    (#1) In 1989, Russian Scientists Drilled A 50,000-Foot Hole Into A Peninsula And Broke Into A Cavity

    During the Cold War, many countries fought to be the first to drill into the Earth's crust. They were hoping to study the composition of the rock layers below. While other countries stalled or stopped their efforts due to low funding, Russia slowly drilled into the crust.

    In 1989, the drilling broke through a cavity in the Earth at an estimated depth of 14.5 kilometers, or approximately 9 miles. The engineers and scientists lowered heat-resistant measurement tools and a microphone into the hole to capture recordings.

  • A Radio Host Tracked Down The Origins Of The Legend From Russia To Finland To California on Random Legends of ‘Well To Hell’ That Is A Russian Borehole

    (#11) A Radio Host Tracked Down The Origins Of The Legend From Russia To Finland To California

    After receiving multiple requests to investigate the Well to Hell story, Rich Buhler of Christianity Today began looking into its genesis.

    In the 1990s, Buhler contacted TBN to determine their original source for the "Scientists Discover Hell" story. They sent him to Texas evangelist R.W. Schambach, who sent them a clipping from a Finnish paper called Ammennusastia. TBN called the paper a "respected newspaper," but when Buhler called the publisher, he discovered Ammennusastia was actually a Christian publication that approached topics with a religious slant.

    Ammennusastia's story ran based on the recall of a staff member who cited another Finnish publication, Etelä-Suomen Sanomat, as the source. That section of the paper actually allowed readers to write about whatever they liked without substantiation. This particular "letter to the editor" came from a reader who saw the story in a paranormal newsletter.

    Adding to the confusion and legend was a Norwegian man, Åge Rendalen, who purposely sent a mistranslated article to TBN that described the demonic creature rising from the hole in plumes of gas.

  • The Drilling Uncovered Scientific Discoveries That Include Fossils Up To Two Billion Years Old on Random Legends of ‘Well To Hell’ That Is A Russian Borehole

    (#13) The Drilling Uncovered Scientific Discoveries That Include Fossils Up To Two Billion Years Old

    In reality, the Russian drilling in the Kola Peninsula bore the fruit of multiple scientific and engineering discoveries. Scientists learned that the "Conrad discontinuity" theory was incorrect, as there was no transition from granite to basalt as drilling continued through the Earth's mantle.

    Also contrary to popular beliefs of the time, there is water at the 7-mile mark down through the Earth. The temperature also increased at a higher rate earlier in the drilling process than anticipated.

    Scientists found fossils and rocks preserved in the Earth that they dated at over 2 billion years old. The fossils are in excellent condition despite the recorded temperature of 356 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Russians also developed drilling techniques to simultaneously lessen tool breakage and prevent the destabilization of the hole. The equipment they created and the rules they laid out are still used in drilling today.

    The Kola Superdeep Borehole remains the deepest man-made hole on Earth as of 2020, reaching one-third of the distance to the Earth's Baltic crust at 7.5 miles.

  • Some Believe The Infamous Audio Is A Heavily Edited Clip From A ‘70s Film on Random Legends of ‘Well To Hell’ That Is A Russian Borehole

    (#12) Some Believe The Infamous Audio Is A Heavily Edited Clip From A ‘70s Film

    After the 2002 release of the alleged clip that recorded the screams of hell's condemned, multiple people listened to the snippet in an effort to either verify or debunk its contents.

    One theory proposed that the sounds were actually a looped portion of audio from the 1972 horror movie Baron Blood. A YouTube account called "moscowjade" featured the clip on their channel in 2010, offering that they are Christian and believe in hell, but do think the audio is from the horror flick, not the devil's domain.

    Opinions on the origins of the audio are split, though many skeptics agree the clip is looped. 

  • Legend Says Many Scientists Immediately Quit The Site After Hearing The Sounds on Random Legends of ‘Well To Hell’ That Is A Russian Borehole

    (#5) Legend Says Many Scientists Immediately Quit The Site After Hearing The Sounds

    In the aftermath of the discovery, multiple engineers reportedly walked off of the job site in terror. They allegedly believed hell made itself known to both them and the world, and they wanted to be as far from it as possible.

    A few of the workers stayed on site, only to allegedly witness something even more horrifying later on.

  • In 2002, A Radio Correspondent Shared The Recovered Audio, Reviving The Story on Random Legends of ‘Well To Hell’ That Is A Russian Borehole

    (#10) In 2002, A Radio Correspondent Shared The Recovered Audio, Reviving The Story

    In 2002, the host of Coast to Coast AM, Art Bell, received an email from an anonymous correspondent

    My uncle collected videos on the paranormal and supernatural. He passed away fairly recently... He let me listen to one of the audio tapes that he had on the sounds from hell in Siberia, and I copied it. He received his copy from a friend who worked at the BBC... Attached is that sound from my uncle's tapes.

    Bell played the snippet of audio to his audience, bringing the Well to Hell story back to the forefront for internet sleuths and paranormal enthusiasts.

About This Tool

The deepest man-made hole on earth is 40,000 feet deep below the surface. Many countries wanted to be the first country to drill into the earth’s mantle during the Cold War. This Russian ultra-deep borehole was created by the Soviets in the name of science, they tried to understand what the ground is and find oil. Local people said that they could hear the screams of people being tortured in hell, so it was named the well of hell.

Due to the unpredictable conditions of the earth's crust, various reasons led to the suspension of exploration, but this Russian borehole still left many legends. The generator will help to know more about the legendary well of hell.
