1957-1968 - 'Silver Bullet' Bursts Through Antarctic Ice

Date: Exact date unknown; between 1957 and 1968
Time: Evening
Location: Admiralty Bay, Antarctica
“One evening in the Antarctic, a Brazilian scientist by the name of Dr. Rubens J. Villela, seconded to the U.S. Navy’s ‘Operation Deep Freeze’ (1957-1968) and aboard an icebreaker, was literally jolted almost out of both his body and his mind by a “something” that suddenly came roaring up out of the sea through no less than 37 feet of ice, and went on up into the sky like a vast silvery bullet. The ship was in Admiralty Bay, which faces the South Atlantic Ocean. The only other witnesses were the officer on the watch and the helmsman, as it was an extremely cold day and all other personnel were below decks. Further, these witnesses saw only the tag end of the performance because they were busy with charts; but what they did witness was quite enough. Enormous blocks of ice had been hurled high into the air and came cascading down all around the hole burst through the thick ice sheet, and the water was rolling, and apparently boiling, while masses of steam issued from both the hole and the descending ice.”
