Can the sea catch fire?
This question sounds a bit outrageous, but a real “sea of fire” lit up on the Gulf of Mexico a while ago, and a giant circle of fire continued to burn for several hours:
The picture of fire in the water is extremely magical, and the orange flames jump fiercely on the sea, a bit like magma gushing out.
Looking down from the sky, it is like the sea has opened an eye, so some netizens call it the “eye of fire.”
So… is this a portal to another world, or a magic circle for summoning demons? Or where did the fairy put this boiled fish?
This time the wonder of the sea is a pot of mankind.
The “eye of fire” appeared in the waters west of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. The cause of the current fire is believed to be due to thunderstorms and the leakage of underwater natural gas pipelines.
It is said that fire and water are not tolerable, but in fact this phenomenon of fire on water caused by gas pollution has existed before. For example, in 2011, American netizen Sherry Vargso showed how to use matches to light contaminated tap water in the kitchen:
In 2016, someone tried to ignite a polluted water area in Australia with a lighter, and the flame was too big:
The flame bounced on the water for a long time.
Of course, the above flames are far less exaggerated than the “Fire Eyes” in the Gulf of Mexico. It feels like the whole area of water is boiling like a huge pot of hot pot.
And a few hundred meters near it is an offshore work platform, which seems to be sucked in and swallowed by flames at any time:
Fortunately, the fire fighting started quickly. The fire was extinguished about 5 hours later, and no casualties were reported, which is a blessing in misfortune.
But who would have thought that this rescue operation triggered another
The network vomits.
In fact, it is not complicated for netizens to complain about it, just like the following picture of fighting a fire on the surface of the water:
In the eyes of some netizens, it is ridiculous enough to catch a fire on the water, and then have to be wiped out with water. Isn’t it ridiculous that the landlord touched the four 2 belts and two kings, directly ridiculously super doubled?
So some older brothers opened the wheat directly, and complained that this scene is like drying water with a mop at the beach:
Some people are still wondering if this sea is on fire. Would it be useful for you to put this little water into the arena? This water flow is like using a squirt gun to extinguish the sun and let the Belgian guy who has been peeing to extinguish the flame mountain:
Many people have also brainstormed some other scenes, such as “the sea is thirsty.”
“Swimmers need mineral water to cool down after sweating.”
Others think of Captain America who tried to stun the robot, the small excavator that dredged the Suez Canal…
Some onlookers who are not too busy to watch the excitement are still making their own ideas, saying not to put out the fire with water, it is better to use sand or just buckle a lid:
Tucao is not over here. There are also sharp-eyed netizens who discovered that there seems to be a boat paddling in the rescue team?
Someone explained that it did its best, but the location is a bit problematic.
Someone made an emoji package, and it was really heartbreaking after reading it.
However, while playing stalks, some people are seriously analyzing this rescue.
First of all, I personally don’t think that the video currently circulating on the Internet can be used to summarize the entire firefighting operation. After all, the video is only a few minutes, and the firefighting process takes at least a few hours.
In addition, according to Reuters, nitrogen was used in addition to water in the firefighting process. In an interview with Wired magazine, Christopher Reddy, a scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, also believes that this can block the fire by blocking oxygen. .
Others analyzed the ship’s location and believed that in this case, the water temperature near the ring of fire was obviously different from the normal environment, and the rescuers themselves might be dangerous if they were too close. At the same time, the rescue boat does not use water to extinguish the fire, but needs to use water mist to control the fire. If the fire does not spread, let the leaked gas burn out, and the fire will naturally be extinguished.
Of course, many people believe that there is a lack of complete rescue procedures and details, and the Mexican Petroleum Company has not disclosed more information on this, so it is difficult to have a more accurate conclusion. In general, this boat should indeed have done its best.
But no matter what the result is, this is a worse accident.
But the magic of the earth is that when you think that something is bad, it is actually worse. For example, the giant flame that broke out at sea recently
It’s not just this one.
A few days ago, some netizens photographed a large-scale explosion in the Caspian waters near Azerbaijan. The entire sky was orange-red. At first I thought it was sunset, but the next second it burst into flames.
Like a monster hiding on the bottom of the sea, it breathed and roared at the sky:
Godzilla, isn’t it you?
Netizens are confused.
At first people thought which offshore oil and gas platform had exploded again, but officials quickly denied it. Despite the violent explosion, there is a gas field about 10 kilometers away from the explosion site, but no oil or gas platform has been damaged so far.
At the same time, officials stated that the fireball eruption was caused by mud volcanoes.
Moreover, the source of the explosion, the mud volcano on Dashly Island, has also been identified.
Mud volcanoes are landforms formed after mud or mud, water and gas are ejected and accumulated on the ground. They do not eject magma, and the temperature is relatively low.
It is currently speculated that the mud volcano on this island produced a certain spark during the eruption and ignited the combustible gas inside, and then directly ejected a large fireball.
From this perspective, it really looks like the sea is on fire:
It is worth mentioning that Azerbaijan has 400 mud volcanoes, and there have been operations to erupt large fireballs before. According to reports, in 2001, a mud volcano expelled a 15-meter-high flame.
In general, two “big fireballs” popped up on the sea in a short period of time. Fortunately, people were fine, but the two incidents brought completely different feelings to different people.
Environmentalists are naturally extremely dissatisfied with the leak in the Gulf of Mexico, and doomsday enthusiasts always feel that after watching the big fireball in the Caspian Sea, there is still something to come.
But to be honest, the fans of SpongeBob Squarepants should be the most shocked.
Back then, “Roasting Fire in the Sea” was ridiculed as a famous scene. Now I want to ask if this is a normal operation?
