The radius of the Earth is about 4000 miles

Those guys dug a hole 11 Km deep. Thy were only about 3990 miles or so from Hell. Impossible.

11km is still in the crust, but it would be awefully hot down there.

Question - How hot is the earth at a depth of 1 mile? I know there
is a constant calculable formula for temperature as you go deeper and
deeper. Therefore the temp in a cave or well or archeological dig should
be an exact answer, and I would like to know what that is.
----------------------------------------
The rate of change of temperature with depth is referred to as the
geothermal gradient. The geothermal gradient varies depending on location,
so there is no uniform answer. On average, the geothermal gradient is
approximately 75 degrees F per mile. In volcanically active areas, the
gradient can be as high as 150 degrees F per mile. In ocean trenches, the
gradient may be as low as 15 degrees F per mile. Decay of naturally
occurring radioactive elements may also cause localized increases in
temperature in some locations.

So, 11km = 6.8350831 mi * 75 = 512.6312325 degrees F

don't feel like going to the site, but is this the story of miners or scientists in russia digging the deepest hole ever and hearing what they said was the voices of people in hell?
I heard that on art bell one night while doing my laundry. the tape he played was laughable at best, mainly sounded like static

edit: decided to go to the site. it's the story I heard on art bell, who happens to be king of the tin foil hat people

Art Bell pushes this nonsense at least once a month on his show.

I like Art, but I doubt that he checks out his stories either.

I'm a slow reader... so I demand 5 minutes of my life back.
