Waterfall in the Poles - the strangest natural attractions in the world

In part of the eastern part of Antarctica, there is a red waterfall that looks like a stream of blood against the whiteness of the region’s glaciers. For the first time in 1911, a geologist named Grift Taylor discovered the waterfall. He believed that the color was due to the presence of algae in the water, but this theory was never confirmed.

 The cause of this red current was challenged for years until researchers at the University of Alaska Fairbanks discovered the cryptocurrency. According to this research, this red color was found to be due to the presence of oxidized iron in salt water. In fact, when iron-containing saline water reacts with oxygen, iron oxide is produced, and as a result, the red oxide turns the cascade into a blood cascade.
