The Darvaza gas crater known locally as the "Door to Hell" or ''Gates of Hell", is a natural gas field collapsed into an underground cavern located in Derweze, Turkmenistan.

Geologists set it on fire to prevent the spread of methane gas, and it is thought to have been burning continuously since 1971. The diameter of the crater is 69 metres (226 ft), and its depth is 30 metres (98 ft).

The Darvaza Crater, which is the actual name of the 'Door to Hell', has sparked the curiosity of many over the years, but George Kourounis became the first to actually step in.

In the desolate landscape of northern Turkmenistan lies a fiery crater that would impress even Dante.

He recently plunged himself into the mysterious burning pit to see what really goes on down there, making him the first person to dare to do so.

At the top of the list of thing's he'd hoped to find was life, as such a discovery could provide valuable insights into what may or may not be living on hot, volatile planets.

The endeavor was a success, as bacteria were detected in some of the soil samples he took from the bottom.
