Back in 2008, researchers discovered a massive hydrothermal vent system in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, between Greenland and Norway. This is basically a group of enormous undersea volcanoes, more than 7,500 feet underwater, shooting out superheated water in 40-foot plumes of sulfides. They were christened “Loki’s Castle,” and there’s nothing else quite like them on the planet–and now Norway is considering protecting them by naming them a national park.
