The world's Longest hole


What is the world's longest hole?

The record for the world's longest hole or world's deepest hole, now belongs to Maersk Oil.

The hole was completed in May 2008 at Al Shaheen Field, just offshore of Qatar.

The length; an oily 40,320 feet or 12.3 kilometres, just beating out the famous Kola Superdeep Borehole.

The world's second longest hole is the Kola well dug in Siberia by Russian scientists from 1970 until 1994 until.....

If you are squeamish we recommend you stop reading now because what was discovered and covered up will give you nightmares.

Still here? OK, here goes, but we warned you.

A geological group who drilled a hole about 14.4 kilometers deep in the crust of the earth are saying that they heard human screams. Screams have been heard from the condemned souls from earth’s deepest hole. Terrified scientists are afraid they have let loose the evil powers of hell up to the earth’s surface.

"The information we are gathering is so surprising, that we are sincerely afraid of what we might find down there," stated Mr. Azzacov, the manager of the project to drill a 14.4 kilometer hole in remote Siberia. The geologists were dumbfounded. After they had drilled several kilometers through the earth’s crust, the drill bit suddenly began to rotate wildly. "There is only one explanation—that the deep center of the earth is hollow," the surprised Azzacov explained.

The second surprise was the high temperature they discovered in the earth’s center. "The calculations indicate the given temperature was about 1,100 degrees Celsius, or over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit," Dr. Azzacov points out. "This is far more then we expected. It seems almost like an inferno of fire is brutally going on in the center of the earth."

"The last discovery was nevertheless the most shocking to our ears, so much so that the scientists are afraid to continue the project. We tried to listen to the earth’s movements at certain intervals with supersensitive microphones, which were let down through the hole. What we heard turned those logically thinking scientists into a trembling ruins. It was a sometimes a weak, but high pitched sound which we thought to be coming from our own equipment," explained Dr. Azzacov. "But after some adjustments we comprehended that indeed the sound came from the earth’s interior. We could hardly believe our own ears. We heard a human voice, screaming in pain. Even though one voice was discernible, we could hear thousands, perhaps millions, in the background, of suffering souls screaming. After this ghastly discovery, about half of the scientists quit because of fear. Hopefully, that which is down there will stay there," Dr. Azzacov added.

OK, yes that was an urban legend that gained popularity and massive press as it 'proved' Hell and thus God exists.

The scientist did manage to reach a depth of 12.262 kilometres or about 7 miles, taking core samples to study the Earth's crust.

Just for reference, it is about 4,000 miles to the center of the Earth so the world's longest hole reached 0.175% of the way.
