Scientists Discover Frozen Statues - Investigations Bring Police into the Picture
The Human Curiosity
Have you ever heard of the search for Atlantis or various sea creatures that are still unknown? These are all things that people would love to discover, yet their existence remains completely questioned.
A group of scientists exploring the North Pole expected to be alone. A wave of shock came over them when they discovered a dozen "statues". As they approached closer, they realized that they were not statues at all...
What had they discovered?
The bizarre discovery made its way into the media around the world. The scientists only understood what they had discovered when they took a closer look. It could be something that could change our perspective of the past or influence the future.
Only one of the scientists was brave enough to approach the strange scene. The concept of frozen statues is not new, but what on earth were they doing at the North Pole? No one should be out here, so how did they get here? Keep reading to uncover the truth behind the "statues"...
Not a Normal Mission
A research, a journey, an adventure, and even a mission filled with questions that might possibly be answered. One must ensure one survives all possible scenarios as well as seeking excitement in life.
When a team of scientists came together to plan their mission to the North Pole, they had to admit that this would be a true challenge. They felt a sense of nervousness, and at first glance, it seemed like a normal research trip. However, something had happened recently that made everyone appear a bit more nervous...
The Last Team Was Missing
When it comes to research expeditions to the North Pole or climbing Mount Everest, there are usually one or more harrowing stories. A major negative factor is that sometimes, people may not return from such missions at all.
The last team that set out on a mission had not contacted the base camp again. People had been searching for them, but with no luck so far. Not knowing what happened to them was absolutely distressing. However, the new mission could not be halted, and the team decided to be brave.
When it comes to studying and analyzing artifacts, it usually takes longer than expected. Either additional equipment or different technology is brought in to obtain results, or a special expert, living outside the country, needs to be contacted. The waiting period, however, allows for a clearer perspective.
The team was still unsure of what to expect, but the next two weeks went pretty much according to plan. However, the weather did not cooperate, making communication more difficult. In general, a dark cloud of uncertainty hung over them, and the entire research team wanted to know what had happened to the previous team. Were they safe out there somewhere?
Staying in contact with the expedition team was a constant challenge as the weather and the remote location they were exploring offered limited communication. Their safety was, of course, a priority, which made communication crucial. They wanted to ensure that everyone returned safely.
The study was going well until the researchers received a warning signal through their radio. They woke up the rest of the research team and repeated the signal they had received. The four of them were tired, but after hearing the message, they couldn't sleep. It was an emergency call!
The Emergency Call
Emergency calls can always be a task, depending on who receives them and how well-equipped they are. When on a mission, it is particularly important to make an effort to stay connected so that people are ready to help when needed. It's meant as a precaution.
The radio signal was weak and kept breaking up. But the cries for help were clear. The person on the other end relayed coordinates to them. The researchers wrote them down and tried to converse further with the person, but the weather worsened, affecting the reception.
Having reception was one of the more unstable aspects of a mission. When exploring an unknown location, one often ends up in a place with no form of long-distance communication. This was something the researchers had experienced before.
The signal cut off. The scientists weren't sure what to do next. They were told that they were the only ones at the base camp, with no other camps nearby. It was cold, dark, and therefore dangerous. Would they get government permission to go out and see what was happening outside?
All they could do was find alternatives to ensure the team's survival through the mission. Many people think that missions and expeditions are easy, but the reality leads to a long list of unexpected tasks.
The scientists had to do something. After all, it was an emergency call. Someone out there was in need of help and needed it urgently. The coordinates weren't far from the base camp. There really was no other choice - they had to go there.
Instead of just thinking of themselves, they decided to help another team in need. Some people might have ignored this emergency call to guarantee their own safety. These scientists, however, took fate into their own hands.
Traveling would be difficult. The coordinates were several hours' hike away, but with this weather, it would probably take a whole day. It would be possible, but very challenging. What would happen to the people in need? Could they survive the day? Or would it already be too late?
The coordinates were in a region they had not yet explored. It was outside the area of their study. They would have to request special permission to even embark on the journey.
Would they be able to make the request amidst this storm? Or did their adventure already come to an end due to communication problems? The team had made the decision - could the government really stand in their way?
One of the things you expect when you're in the middle of nowhere is a guarantee of no reception. So if someone manages to send an emergency call, they must have been desperately searching for a signal, and the emergency call was genuine.
The scientists tried to send a signal to their superiors. They decided not to wait for permission because it would take too much time. The group had the coordinates, and now they had to set off to save one or more other individuals.
Instead of waiting for approval, the team took initiative and would rely on fate. All the scientists were in agreement. They had to take a certain risk to search for whoever was lost out there.
They prepared as quickly as possible. It wasn't particularly wise to leave the base camp for such a long time without informing anyone, but the decision was made. They were ready to march.
Trying to rescue someone or help with an emergency call is a difficult task because you can only focus on the rescue itself, not the time it takes. Often, all risks are completely disregarded because the focus is on saving lives.
On the day of the journey, the research team was soon caught up in bad weather, prolonging their trip. It took a while for the storm to pass, and they could only move slowly. The scientists were tired, and there was no clear visibility. There seemed to be no soul out here.
Wandering blindly into the abyss was never really an option - they had planned the route and knew the rules they had to follow to save a life, not lose three more. The plan was to find the lost people and bring them back to the base camp.
But everything became more complicated as the entire research team eventually grew tired. They almost gave up or even contemplated setting up camp to rest for a while. But when the emergency call came to mind again, they knew they couldn't let the people in need suffer.
Taking the risk was one thing, but not knowing if it was even worth it posed another problem. There were already forebodings that all chances were lost, and there was no point in continuing. But then all their efforts would have been in vain anyway.
The scientists managed to cross an icy hill they had to climb until they reached the coordinates. They speculated all along the way how someone could have made it there without notifying anyone.
The group hoped that perhaps a helicopter or airplane would show up. Maybe the people had managed to send another signal, and help would arrive as soon as possible. Suddenly, they discovered something completely bizarre. Nobody knew exactly what they had just discovered.
The last thing you would expect out here was a house in the middle of nowhere. A shiver ran down their spines. The storm had subsided slightly, and there in front of them was an older house surrounded by a stone wall. What was going on here?
