Did Russian scientists really drill into hell?

Since the collapse of the old Soviet Union in 1989, many bizarre secret files of the KGB have been inspected by the intelligence services of both America and Britain. In 1990, one of these old files was faxed to the D11 Department of the Secret Service in Whitehall London, but what the dossier contained was so extraordinary and unbelievable, the data it contained soon leaked out.

The information contained in that file, including other information gathered from an article in a Finnish newspaper called Ammennusatia, is stated below. In August 1989, geologists from Moscow were sent to Siberia, where a Soviet oil drill had descended to bore a hole in the earth’s crust to a record depth of over 12 miles. This borehole is still the world’s deepest, but something was obstructing the revolving tip of the drill, and no one knew what it was.

Dr Dimitri Azzakov, a world authority on the earth’s crust, had therefore been sent for. He arrived with a team of experts and continued the drilling. Dr Azzakov said, “The drill suddenly began to rotate wildly, indicating that we had reached a large empty pocket or cavern. Temperature sensors showed a dramatic increase in heat to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. This is far more then we expected. It seemed almost like an inferno of fire was brutally going on in the centre of the earth.”

Azzakov ordered further drilling attempts to be stopped and requested over 12 miles of heat-resistant electrical cable. He attached a sensitive microphone to the end of the cable and lowered it through the hollow shaft of the drill. The microphone was water-cooled and coated with thermo-insulation tiles similar to those used on the heat-shield of spacecraft.

One hour later, in his trailer, which was cluttered with electrical hardware, Azzakov switched on a sensitive amplifier that was connected to the underground microphone, and expected to hear the stresses and strains of molten rock under pressure, but what he and the other five people present did hear was to haunt them for the rest of their lives. The microphone picked up what sounded like hundreds of human voices, screaming in pain.

Azzakov stated that, “We lowered a microphone, designed to detect the sounds of plate movements down the shaft. But instead of plate movements we heard a human voice screaming in pain! At first we thought the sound was coming from our own equipment. But when we made adjustments our worst suspicions were confirmed.

The screams weren’t those of a single human, they were the screams of millions of humans! The last discovery was nevertheless the most shocking to our ears, so much so that the scientists are afraid to continue the project. We tried to listen to the earth’s movements at certain intervals with supersensitive microphones, which were let down through the hole. What we heard turned those logically thinking scientists into trembling ruins. We could hardly believe our own ears. Even though one voice was discernible, we could hear thousands, perhaps millions, in the background, of suffering souls screaming.

After this ghastly discovery, about half of the scientists quit because of fear. Hopefully, that which is down there will stay there,” Dr Azzakov added. “As a communist, I don’t believe in heaven or the Bible, but as a scientist, I now believe in hell,” said Dr Azzakov. “Needless to say, we were shocked to make such a discovery. But we know what we heard. And we are absolutely convinced that we drilled through the gates of hell!”

Azzakov taped the sounds, and was obviously baffled by the disturbing noises of the subterranean wails. “It sounds like people down there, but it obviously cannot be,” Azzakov said to an ex-military officer who was now supervising the drilling operation. At last, one of the men present said what was on everyone’s mind, “You know, if I were not an atheist, I would say we were listening to the sounds of hell.”

Azzakov laughed very nervously at the man’s comments. He was afraid of the distressing sounds, but being a scientist, it was his job to explain them. He therefore ordered a heat-resistant camera from the Baikonur space centre. Azzakov was a widely respected scientist, and within three days, a military helicopter arrived at the remote drilling outpost with the special camera, which was identical to a space-probe camera that had been designed to withstand the phenomenal heat of Venus.

The camera was lowered down the shaft for over an hour and switched on. According to the incredible account signed both by Azzakov and an aeronautics engineer from the space centre, shimmering pictures of people silhouetted against glowing rocks could be seen. The figures were motionless, and laying about on the incandescent rocks. Every few minutes a bright light was seen to move among them, but the light was always out of focus, and seemed to be under intelligent control. The harrowing scenes were allegedly videotaped, but three minutes into the tape, the camera malfunctioned and the microphone melted.

A blast of steam rushed up through the hollow shaft and sent clouds of foul-smelling sulphur and choking fumes to the surface. The drill had to be disconnected because of insurmountable mechanical problems with the shaft, and the drilling operation was subsequently moved to another site in Siberia hundreds of miles away.

“What really unnerved the Soviets, apart from the voice recordings, was the appearance that same night of a fountainhead of luminous gas shooting up from the drill site, and amidst this incandescent cloud pillar, a brilliant being with bat wings revealed itself with the words (in Russian): “I have conquered” emblazoned against the dark Siberian sky.

The incident was absolutely unreal; the Soviets cried out in terror,” says Mr Nummedal, a resident in the area. Later that night, he saw ambulance crews circulating in the community. A driver he knew told him that they had been told to sedate everybody with a medication known to erase short term memory. The Soviets use this drug in the treatment of shock victims.

Azzakov and the expert from the space centre were interrogated by the KGB and warned to say nothing to anyone in Russia about the weird incident.

The country was then under crumbling communist control, and atheism was the official line of the ruling party. Any rumour of the strange inferno under Siberia would have been construed by many as proof that hell is a reality.

Interesting story but it would seem the answer is no:

I don't believe Snopes and Truth or Fiction have all the answers and especially when it comes to God and Hell.
