  • Do you think people have pretty much gotten the hang of how things work on Earth? For example, we know that islands don’t just pop up overnight and they definitely don’t move. So when they do, we’re left scrambling for answers. Here are the most bizarre moving islands that had researchers stumped! Scientists needed to study this thing up close. When they approached the mysterious island, they were amazed to find that it wasn’t a solid piece of land at all! It was a giant mass of rocks floating on the surface of the water. And it really was humungous, about 300 miles long and 30 miles wide, a lot bigger than Jamaica, in fact. And this layer of floating rocks was about 2 feet thick.

And this layer of floating rocks was about 2 feet thick. When the researchers shined spotlights on the unusual mass, it lit up a bright white color, just like the edge of an ice shelf. - This long-term buoyancy is thanks to the itsy bitsy pores in the rock. They’re not like a sponge that absorbs water but are so small that water simply presses on them and keeps the gas trapped inside. - According to scientists, they even played an important role in the process of evolution. By drifting over large expanses of water, they would transport microbes, plants, and even animals to far away destinations. - But just wait until you hear about “The Eye”! This island is located not far from the northeastern border of Argentina in the Paraná Delta. This thing is full of mystery. It’s a perfectly circular island, and not only does it float, it also rotates! - The phenomenon in Argentina is uncommon, but it isn’t unique. A vivid example is the Luapula River, which is located on the border between Zambia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. - But not all floating islands were created by nature. For example, there are very famous manmade islands that constantly move around Lake Titicaca, situated between Bolivia and Peru.
