Listen to the World’s Longest Echo

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the world’s longest echo clock in at 15 seconds, an event that recorded in 1970.  That record has now been shattered by what can be heard in some oil storage tunnels in Scotland.  One sound–blanks from a pistol–echoed for one minute and 12 seconds.  Listen.
