The gates of hell will be closed
« on: January 10, 2022, 11:00:15 AM »
One of the world's most brutal autocrats has announced that he plans to close the 'Gates of Hell'.

Former dentist Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov has ordered his ministers in reclusive Turkmenistan to find world experts who can seal off a giant crater that has been burning for half a century.

The methane gas-belching sinkhole Darvaza has been ablaze since Soviet scientists ignited it in 1971.

The scary 230ft-wide crater - permanently on fire - can be seen from miles around.

It is known as the 'Gates of Hell' or 'Mouth of Hell', and is located in the Karakum Desert, about 160 miles north of capital city Ashgabat.

I have to agree with Steve. The darn thing has been burning now for 51 years.
