A man isolated himself in the woods for 40 years… and what he discovered is shocking scientists.

The ghost town of Gothic, Colorado is one of the coldest places in the U.S. It’s been abandoned since the 1920s, but one man — Billy Barr — has lived there in a cabin for over 40 years.

He has books, a radio and some Bollywood movies to entertain him. But with only weather and the animals as his companions, he began recording data about the snowpack to help pass the time.

What was just a hobby became an important treasure trove of data for scientists. And what Billy discovered just might surprise you at 3:07…
