Antarctica may have a treasure trove of more than 300,000 meteorites

According to a conservative estimate, there may be more than 300,000 meteors or meteorites in Antarctica alone. This is because the smooth snow prevents the rocks from breaking and makes them easier to find.

On the other hand, 66% of the world’s meteorites are currently picked up from Antarctica. Dark rocks buried in white snow can be easily identified.

Meteorites are orbiting in our solar system and their fragments are moving towards the earth by gravity. They are often ignited by friction in the air and are consumed in the form of a line of light. But some rocks fall to the ground. Their study can provide information on the past of the solar system and its formation.
Now artificial intelligence has shown that meteorites fall anywhere. More and more snow falls on them and they themselves become part of the snow. But they do not stop there and keep slipping to the shores of the continent and gather there. Now it will be easier to find them.

This place is called ‘blue snow’ because the snow is light on the wind and the blue color is prominent in it. Even before that, meteorites have been found in blue ice.

Dr. Veronica Tolenar, a glacier specialist at the University of Brussels, and her colleagues have used satellite imagery and artificial intelligence to identify areas where meteorites may be present. The software identified 600 locations where meteors could be present with 83% accuracy.

With the help of drones and other technology, meteors can be identified and taken out. This whole map is called the treasure map.
