Cueva de los Cristales 2007
"The scientific-exploratory expedition organized by La Venta Geographical Association and by Mexican Society Speleoresearch & Film has officially begun after more than 16 months of planning and experimenting.
During the 16 months of preparation the Association has tested a specifically designed cooled suit, which allows the explorer to remain in the cave for almost one hour. Not a very long time span, but it will still allow to carry out many interesting studies.
This web page will cover, with daily updates live from the base camp at the entrance of the cave, what will happen during these two weeks of exploration and study.
The Crystals Cave Project, A forest of crystals, the biggest ones on the Planet.An unreal world, beyond imagination, beyond dream.A cave with a temperature of 50° C and 100% humidity; an infernal place, where man can survive just a few minutes. Still unexplored.A wonder of nature discovered by chance, fragile and mysterious; something we risk to lose at any time.And that will soon turn inaccessible again, hidden in the heart of the Earth. Naica's Crystals Cave is a small window onto the immense geological time; a window man can now open thanks to a new, exclusive technology.A high risk «astronautics» exploration, beyond human limits, in order to understand, study, document and save. Before it becomes too late."
