The Big Empty Shell Of The Hollow Earth Hypothesis

In 1947, the famous polar explorer admiral Richard Byrd flew missions over the North Pole. During these trips, he allegedly recorded some bizarre notes in his private journal. Byrd reported that he saw mysterious land beyond the North Pole. He called this land the "center of the great unknown." This propagated the wild Hollow Earth Hypothesis. A few years later, during a mission to the South Pole, Byrd and his team reported seeing a hole to the inside of a hollow Earth, which was populated with extremely advanced beings.
