The record for the world's longest hole
or world's deepest hole, now belongs to Maersk Oil.
The hole was completed in May 2008 at Al Shaheen Field,
just offshore of Qatar.

Still here? OK, here goes, but we warned you.
geological group who drilled a hole about 14.4 kilometers deep in the crust of
the earth are saying that they heard human screams. Screams have been heard from
the condemned souls from earth’s deepest hole. Terrified scientists are afraid
they have let loose the evil powers of hell up to the earth’s surface.
"The information we are gathering is so surprising, that we are sincerely afraid
of what we might find down there," stated Mr. Azzacov, the manager of the
project to drill a 14.4 kilometer hole in remote Siberia. The geologists were
dumbfounded. After they had drilled several kilometers through the earth’s
crust, the drill bit suddenly began to rotate wildly. "There is only one
explanation—that the deep center of the earth is hollow," the surprised Azzacov
The second surprise was the high temperature they discovered in the earth’s
center. "The calculations indicate the given temperature was about 1,100 degrees
Celsius, or over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit," Dr. Azzacov points out. "This is far
more then we expected. It seems almost like an inferno of fire is brutally going
on in the center of the earth."
"The last discovery was nevertheless the most shocking to our ears, so much so
that the scientists are afraid to continue the project. We tried to listen to
the earth’s movements at certain intervals with supersensitive microphones,
which were let down through the hole. What we heard turned those logically
thinking scientists into a trembling ruins. It was a sometimes a weak, but high
pitched sound which we thought to be coming from our own equipment," explained
Dr. Azzacov. "But after some adjustments we comprehended that indeed the sound
came from the earth’s interior. We could hardly believe our own ears. We heard a
human voice, screaming in pain. Even though one voice was discernible, we could
hear thousands, perhaps millions, in the background, of suffering souls
screaming. After this ghastly discovery, about half of the scientists quit
because of fear. Hopefully, that which is down there will stay there," Dr.
OK, yes that was an urban
legend that gained popularity and massive press as it 'proved' Hell and thus God
The scientist did
manage to reach a depth of 12.262 kilometres or about 7 miles, taking core
samples to study the Earth's crust.
Just for reference, it is about 4,000 miles to the
center of the Earth so the world's longest hole reached 0.175% of the way.
