Scientists are trying to explain a giant hole, in the middle of nowhere.

This crater formed in a part of Siberia known as “The End of the World.”

It is 260-feet wide.

Russian scientists are going there Thursday to collect soil, air, and water samples. One official says this was not from a meteor strike.

Some geologists say warming temperatures caused permafrost to melt and release natural gas.

The hole may be two years old, but no one has noticed it until now.
