In the heart of the South Pacific Ocean, 2,689 kilometers from the nearest land, is the "Nemo point" - the most remote place on the planet. Here, where sailors are closer to astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS) than to other people, there is a mysterious graveyard of old spaceships.

In 1997, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) discovered a strange ultra-low frequency sound in this remote area. Powerful and deafening, it was one of the loudest ever recorded underwater.

Dubbed a "blunder," the sound has puzzled scientists. Its volume and range (4,800 kilometers) were unusual for known marine animals. Some have suggested that it could be a giant squid or another unknown sea monster.

However, NOAA oceanographer Chris Fox put forward a more plausible explanation: the sound could have been caused by the ice splitting. NOAA later discovered that similar sounds were associated with the disintegration of icebergs.

"The wide-spectrum sounds recorded in the summer of 1997 correspond to the ice tremors created by large icebergs when they crack," said the Pacific Marine Environment Laboratory.

Thus, the mysterious "blunder" turned out to be nothing more than the rumble of ice traveling in the waters around Antarctica. Although it is not a giant sea monster, it is a testament to the incredible power of nature and the vastness of our ocean.
