In 1977, Steven Spielberg's film "the third contact",
the devil's tower is outer space 1 descended to earth locations, so widely known
to the world.
After research, the formation of the devil tower, there are several different
versions of the argument, but each is based on volcanic activity. Most scholars
have accepted that the rocks of the devil's Tower belong to basalt. In fifty
million years ago, this area was buried under the ground,
the area of frequent
geological activity caused by magma intrusion. And after millions of years, to
the bottom of the sedimentary rock cooling and crystallization and hot rock rose
and contraction caused by the now see a multilateral cylinder. Finally, the
igneous rock texture than the surrounding sedimentary rock hard, long time down
wind and water erosion will be less strong sedimentary rocks are etched, and the
rest of the devil tower towering stand above the plain of specific landscape.
