Se encuentra la mayor cueva submarina del mundo en Mexico, Sac Actun, llena de secretos mayas

Después de 10 meses de exploración, los científicos en México han descubierto el sistema de cuevas inundadas más grande del mundo, un verdadero país de maravillas submarino.

Con una extensión de 347 kilómetros de cavernas subterráneas, este laberinto hundido y ramificado no es sólo un espectáculo natural, sino también un importante hallazgo arqueológico que podría revelar los secretos perdidos de la antigua civilización maya.

«Esta inmensa cueva representa el yacimiento arqueológico sumergido más importante del mundo«, dice el arqueólogo subacuático Guillermo de Anda, del Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia de México.

«Tiene más de cien contextos arqueológicos, entre los que se encuentran los primeros pobladores de América, así como la fauna extinta y, por supuesto, la cultura maya».

De Anda encabeza el Proyecto del Gran Acuífero Maya (GAM), un esfuerzo de investigación que durante décadas ha explorado cuevas subacuáticas en el estado mexicano de Quintana Roo, ubicado en la costa caribeña de la Península de Yucatán.

La región alberga 358 impresionantes sistemas de cuevas sumergidas, que representan unos 1.400 kilómetros de túneles de agua dulce inundados ocultos bajo la superficie.

Entre esta red en expansión, la semana pasada surgió un nuevo líder. Llamado el Sistema Sac Actun, este gigantesco pasaje es tan grande que en realidad fue pensado para ser dos sistemas de cuevas diferentes.

Hasta ahora, se pensaba que otro sistema llamado «Dos Ojos» que abarcaba 93 kilómetros era distinto de Sac Actun, pero una exhaustiva inspección submarina de 10 meses demostró que los dos eran en realidad una cavidad continua gigante.

«Estuvimos muy cerca un par de veces. En un par de ocasiones, estuvimos a un metro de hacer una conexión entre los dos grandes sistemas de cuevas», dijo el director de exploración del GAM Robert Schmittner. «Era como intentar seguir las venas dentro de un cuerpo. Era un laberinto de caminos que a veces se unían y otras veces se separaban. Tuvimos que tener mucho cuidado».

Ese esfuerzo valió la pena, Sac Actun ahora absorbe Dos Ojos (y su antigua longitud), lo que significa que a 347 kilómetros de largo Sac Actun es ahora la cueva subacuática más grande del mundo conocida – batiendo al antiguo líder, el Sistema Ox Bel Ha, también en Quintana Roo, que se extiende a lo largo de 270 kilómetros.

Pero la búsqueda aún no ha terminado. Sac Actun está a punto de crecer aún más, con los investigadores diciendo que podría conectarse a otros tres sistemas de cuevas subacuáticas, siempre y cuando más buceos puedan mostrar que las cavernas sí se conectan.

Esas inmersiones no sólo arrojan luz sobre la profundidad del agujero de los peces. Volúmenes incalculables de artefactos mayas preservados y restos humanos están a la espera de ser descubiertos y analizados desde este sistema de cuevas sin precedentes. En última instancia, las implicaciones científicas podrían ser tan masivas como la cueva misma.

«Hemos registrado más de 100 elementos arqueológicos: restos de fauna extinta, humanos primitivos, arqueología maya, cerámica y tumbas mayas», dijo de Anda a los medios de comunicación mexicanos. «Es un túnel del tiempo que te transporta a un lugar hace 10.000 a 12.000 años

    content from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.

    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said «You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.» She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic
