This was an accidental discovery that was made by geologists who were drilling in the area that is now known as Derweze, Turmenistan during the year 1971. Their drilling rig collapsed into the earth. This created a big cavern that was filled up with natural gas. It has been said that the geologists that survived feared that releasing the gas would harm the villages nearby, so they decided to light it on fire. This created a big ball of never ending fire. It created a huge hole in the ground that is on fire eternally.
