Russian scientists are heading to an area in Siberia known as the "end of the world" to investigate a mysterious crater.

Russian scientists are heading to an area in Siberia known as the "end of the world" to investigate a mysterious crater.

Video of the 262-foot-wide hole has caused quite a stir since it was posted online last week.

Experts hope to determine what caused the crater and perhaps debunk some of the theories about its cause, including the idea that it's a UFO landing site.

Some theorize that the crater was caused by a build-up of natural gas since the region is home to one of Russia's largest natural gas fields.
