World’s Largest Cave Passage

There’s a jungle inside Vietnam’s mammoth cavern. A skyscraper could fit too. Hang Son Doong, or “mountain river cave,” is in a remote part of central Vietnam. Hidden in rugged Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park near the border with Laos, the cave is part of a network of 150 or so caves, many still not surveyed, in the Annamite Mountains. You can read the full story of the cave explorers expedition here.



In related news, I have now been switched to the new posting layout. Verdict: mostly okay-but-useless. I agree with what I’ve seen that the switching of “post” and “close” can lead only to bad things.

However, here’s a positive thing that I haven’t seen anybody mention yet: long tags now stay completely visible while you’re typing them, rather than running off the edge and getting lost in the blue. Makes it a lot easier to tell whether you’ve made a typo near the end.
