Cave in Australia named ‘Delta variant’ after coronavirus
Scientists descended into Australia’s deepest cave system and crawled through it.
The researchers boldly rushed to places where cavers had not been before, and set a new record for the depth of the cave.
Speleologists from the Australian organization Southern Tasmanian Caverneers have overcome a cave path 401 meters deep in Tasmania, GLAS reports with reference to Live Science.
Stephen Fordyce first discovered it and assembled an expedition there. He named this cave “Delta Variant” after the delta variant of COVID-19 to remind cavers from the future of the current situation.
The team of experts spent 14 hours underground. They moved through the underground system, which even had a 163 m high waterfall.
