Mexico with a SciFi flair


Get to know Naica the crazy cool cave of GIGANTORAMOUS  crystals!  =O  Thanks to @MexicoTimes who gave me the idea for this post with their tweet about Naica’s Website : “It’s not Krypton! It’s not SciFi! It is Naica! Meet #Mexico‘s new natural wonder: http://is.gd/jVds1 Will blow your senses!”


ABOUT THE VIDEO: “A team of international scientists explore a Mexican cave filled with giant crystals. With temperatures near 120 degrees Fahrenheit (48.8 Celsius), and over 80 per cent humidity, the cave is one of the deadliest environments on earth. Without specialized suits and equipment, the scientists would die in minutes. Their mission: to unlock the secrets of the mysterious ancient crystals, some of the largest ever discovered.” –DocumentalesMexic0 at YouTube.com
