Lazy River Over a year ago, scientists discovered a river that is 4 km underneath the Amazon. They believe that Rio Hamza may be as long as the Amazon, but much wider. The Amazon ranges from 1 km to 100 km and the Hamza ranges from 200 km to 400 km. The Hamza only flows 1 millimeter per second. That's practically not moving at all. They found the river by collecting the temperature down many of the wells.
