Still Waters

Could the evil fictional empire of Mordor from the infamous Lord of the Rings books actually be real? A team of scientists from the University of Adelaide, University of Aberdeen and Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), announced the discovery of a "Tolkienesque" landscape buried deep under the sea in Australia.

The underwater landscape, which the researchers dubbed "Mordor under the sea" consists of 26 different submarine volcanoes that were created around 35 million years ago. The map of the ancient underwater volcanic realm looks eerily similar to Mordor and was found 3D seismic reflection data – a kind of geo-mapping technique that use seismic waves to measure structures under the Earth's surface, LiveScience reported.
