If You Like Caves…

…the discovery of an amazingly large cave in Vietnam is big news. National Geographic has an interesting article, linked, accompanied by a number of spectacular photographs. The cave, Hang Son Doong, is located in a remote jungle. Still, it is hard to understand how it could have gone undiscovered for so long. Vietnamese caves have a long history, but this one could comfortably house a skyscraper;click to enlarge:

The cave is large enough to include its own jungle, where light falls:

It’s a fun reminder of how much we still don’t know about our own planet.
