The Library of Celsus in Ephesus was built in 117 A.D as a tomb for Gaius Julius Celsus Polemaeanus, the governor of the province of Asia. The capacity of the library was more than 12,000 scrolls. It was the third richest library in ancient times after the ones in Alexandria and Pergamon.

Derweze, also known as the Door to Hell, is a 70 meter wide hole in the middle of the Karakum desert in Turkmenistan. The hole was formed in 1971 when a team of Soviet geologists had their drilling rig collapse when they hit a cavern filled with natural gas. In an attempt to avoid poisonous discharge, they decided to burn it off, thinking that the gas would be depleted in only a few days. Derweze is still burning today
