Fight Against Maturity

Cold mountains…icy cold, actually.

There’s a mountain range the size of the Alps hidden underneath the ice of Antarctica – and nobody knows how it got there. The Gamburtsev Mountain Range stretches for 1,200km, and is up to 3,400m high – but because the ice is 4km deep, nobody’s ever seen them.

So how do they know the mountains are there? Can radar penetrate that deeply?
