    The mysterious moving stones of the packed-mud desert of Death Valley have been a center of scientific controversy for decades.

    Rocks weighing up to hundreds of pounds
    have been known to move up to hundreds of yards at a time.

    Some scientists have proposed
    that a combination of strong winds and surface ice account for these movements.

    However, this theory does not explain evidence of
    different rocks starting side by side
    and moving at different rates and in disparate directions.

    Moreover, the physics calculations do not fully support this theory
    as wind speeds of hundreds of miles per hour
    would be needed to move some of the stones.
