If the scientific discoveries are commensurate with the feat, the site of the Kola Superdeep Borehole will also give rise to an urban legend that will first spread in American evangelical circles in the early 90s, to today spread throughout the virtual world of conspirators.

Documenting both the original scientific approach and the legend of Well to Hell, mixed in full page and thumbnail format, the images selected by Sarah Michel are all from the web. The poor quality of the compressed images translates the scrambling of the facts, the dilution of the truth in the fiction, just like the choir of texts stating so many snatches of alternative facts.
