Fact of the Day
The town closest to the hole is Mirna/Мирный, Russia. This mine is also the world's largest manmade hole. The whole is almost 1400 yards in diameter with an overall depth of about 575 yards. There are less impressive, yet deeper mines in South Africa.
Air traffic over the hole had to be restricted in the past due to downward pushing winds that snatched aircrafts (mostly helicopters) out of the air.
