Follow us: - New dangerous cracks in ground appeared on our planet.

This time, they have been reported in Spain.

The Department of Emergency situations urgently requested the Geological Survey of Murcia to assess the cause of the "huge cracks in ground", which appeared after the recent heavy rains in the industrial park area "El Saladar", Totana, situated in the south-east of the Iberian Peninsula.

The crack extends along the industrial park in the direction of the sport city "Valverde Reina"; It has a length of more than 300 meters and a depth of more than two metres in some places.

Crack appeared two days ago and opens gradually reaching a width of 40 to 50 cm.

According to at the beginning of November, cracks appeared on top of a cliff at Cotillo, located at the northern end of Fuerteventura, one of the Canary Islands, in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa.

Even earlier, exactly three months ago, a land crack 1.5 kilometers in length appeared in area of Puerto Lumbreras (also Murcia region of Spain) - (photo below)
According to the source depth of the crack ranges from 2 up to 5 metres.

Puerto Lumbreras, Murcia - extends over 1.5 kilometers and that at some point gets to have up to five feet deep.

The crack affects both houses as farms. Technical Civil Protection and the Geological Survey of Spain moved a few days ago to the place to make a first assessment, but there are no conclusions. A "comprehensive study" is required to analyze the situation, according to the

Fractures in the ground often occur during earthquakes. They appear frequently and their origin is not a mystery.
However, fractures not associated with known earthquake movements, are relatively rare and usually remain - unexplained.

X-ray 'Echoes' Will Help Probe A Supermassive Black Hole's Surroundings

Most big galaxies host a big central black hole containing millions of times the sun's mass. When matter streams toward one of these supermassive black holes, the galaxy's center lights up, emitting billions of times more energy than the sun. For years, astronomers have been monitoring such "active galactic nuclei" (AGN) to better understand what happens on the brink of a monster black hole.

Although there had been prior detections of X-rays from Jupiter with other X-ray telescopes, no one expected that the sources of the X-rays would be located so near the poles.
