How Does the Pumice rock float on water ?
Ram Setu stone also known as pumice rock are made up of a hardened foam of lava that comes out when there’s a volcanic eruption. The volcano from inside has high pressure due to which when the lava coming out of the volcano meets the cold water it doesn’t immediately sink into the water.
How Pumice Stones are made?
It is the wonder of nature that billions of things happen in the world we still cannot understand yet but this one is not from those, The Pumice Stones are made up from lava as we all know there is huge difference in the temperature between water and lava and when the lava meet on water it get cold and the new formation is the stone and pumice stone is one of those as it freezes instantly. The bubbles trapped inside the stone give it a spongy appearance to it which makes it float in water and it has low density then water because of its structure which make them float into the water.
NASA About Ram Setu.
This bridge made of floating stones can still be seen between India and Sri Lanka from Rameshwaram,
the place where Lord ram prayed to lord Shiva and started the construction of the bridge. Since this story is very
old and unproven, many historians, scientists and archaeologists deny accepting this bridge to be built by lord
Rama but at the same time they are unable to explain the concept of floating stones found in Rameshwaram.
Unknown science behind floating stones (Ram Setu)
Until the scientists come up with a convincible theory maybe we can consider Rama Setu as an engineering masterpiece. The technology once existed to make stones float on water and the architect like Nala and Neela were too advanced in building a bridge from India to Sri Lanka within 5 days with the help of dedicated work force of million Vanaras.
The famous NASA satellite footage from 2002. The US scientific body, however, chose to distance itself from any religious interpretation. NASA said, “The image may well be ours, but their interpretation is certainly not ours. Remote sensing images or photographs from orbit cannot provide direct information about the origin or age of a chain of islands, and certainly, cannot determine whether humans were involved in producing any of the patterns seen.”
A map from later centuries also refers to Ram Setu as Adam‟s bridge. Also, the Geological Survey of India‟s report named the Project Rameshwaram and termed this bridge to be used as a means to travel between India and Sri Lanka some about 7,000-10,000 years ago.
