'Mysterious' Baltic Sea Object Identified


Recommended Posts

Hum

A feature on the floor of the Baltic Sea that was discovered last summer by Swedish treasure hunters is making headlines once again. The latest media coverage draws upon an hour-long radio interview with Peter Lindberg, head of the Ocean X Team (which made the "discovery"), in which Lindberg delivers a string of cryptic and titillating statements about the "strange" and "mysterious" seafloor object his team has been exploring for a year.

Lindberg discusses various possibilities for what the object might be: "It has these very strange stair formations, and if it is constructed, it must be constructed tens of thousands of years ago before the Ice Age," he said in the radio interview. (The peak of the most recent Ice Age occurred some 20,000 years ago.)

"If this is Atlantis, that would be quite amazing," he said. Atlantis is a mythical underwater city referred to in ancient legends.

Lindberg acknowledges that the object could instead be a natural formation, such as a meteorite that penetrated the ice during the Ice Age, or an underwater volcano; however, he gives the impression that scientists are baffled by it. Geologists, for example, have supposedly told him the object "cannot be a volcano."

Also adding titillation, Lindberg says a documentary is being made about the seafloor anomaly ? the location of which he has not disclosed ? and he's saving some juicy details for the footage. "We're not telling everything," he said. "We will reveal some quite interesting things in the documentary."

The divers recently gave samples of stone from the object to Volker Br?chert, an associate professor of geology at Stockholm University. Swedish tabloids quote Br?chert as saying: "I was surprised when I researched the material I found a great black stone that could be a volcanic rock. My hypothesis is that this object, this structure was formed during the Ice Age many thousands of years ago."

"It's good to hear critical voices about this 'Baltic Sea mystery,'" Br?chert wrote in an email. "What has been generously ignored by the Ocean-X team is that most of the samples they have brought up from the sea bottom are granites and gneisses and sandstones."

These, he explains, are exactly what one would expect to see in a glacial basin, which is what the Baltic Sea is ? a region carved out by glacial ice long ago.

Aside from a widely-reproduced illustration recently created by a graphics artist in which the Baltic seafloor object is rendered as a beautiful, Atlantis-like archaeological site, there has only ever been one actual image of the Baltic Sea object: the original sonar scan image captured by the divers last summer, in which the object resembles a crashed UFO spaceship. But experts told us that sonar image should be disregarded.

Kind of throws a monkey wrench into those Ocean-X's plans.

I'm now leaning toward a natural formation of some sort.

Article says it was identified, then fails to say what it was; big article and it's full of nothing. FAIL.

on a side note: the SONAR image looks like the Millennium Falcon lol

Agreed, if it is identified, then tell us what it is.

Hell-In-A-Handbasket

stairs ? isnt this the thing that looked like the Millinium Falcon

also i like the " we will reveal some thing in the documentary ", in other words, we want more money so were going to reveal more of the tin foil hat theories in the video so you have to buy it

From the link you provided.

NOTE: PLEASE READ: This is a painting by the artist Hauke Vagt. It's his interpretation of what this object looks like after piecing together various comments made by Peter Lindberg and Dennis Alsberg. This is NOT a underwater photo taken by deep sea divers of this anomaly.

Yep, to further reiterate this;

"The rendering makes the object look manmade, but it almost definitely isn't."

From article source

Here is an updated painting:

Here is a good website with articles on the baltic anomaly: http://truthfall.com/tag/oceanx/

Also, a link to the illustrations section of a website dedicated to the anomaly: http://thebalticanomaly.se/illustrations/

I'm really intrigued by this.

I can see it being not man made but I still would like to know the circumstances that led to it being created.

      Look at any map of the Atlantic Ocean, and you might feel the urge to slide South America and Africa together. The two continents just beg to nestle next to each other, with Brazil’s bulge locking into West Africa’s dimple. That visible clue, along with several others, prompted Alfred Wegener to propose over a century ago that the continents had once been joined in a single enormous landmass. He called it Pangaea, or “all lands.”
       
      Today, geologists know that Pangaea was just the most recent in a series of mighty super-continents. Over hundreds of millions of years, enormous plates of Earth’s crust have drifted together and then apart. Pangaea ruled from roughly 400 million to about 200 million years ago. But wind the clock further back, and other supercontinents emerge. Between 1.3 billion and 750 million years ago, all the continents amassed in a great land known as Rodinia. Go back even further, about 1.4 billion years or more, and the crustal shards had arranged themselves into a supercontinent called Nuna.
       
      Using powerful computer programs and geologic clues from rocks around the world, researchers are painting a picture of these long-lost worlds. New studies of magnetic minerals in rock from Brazil, for instance, are helping pin the ancient Amazon to a spot it once occupied in Nuna. Other recent research reveals the geologic stresses that finally pulled Rodinia apart, some 750 million years ago. Scientists have even predicted the formation of the next supercontinent — an amalgam of North America and Asia, evocatively named Amasia — some 250 million years from now.

      Even in the world of rare stones, Foxfire is a freak.

      It was buried in a place where big gem-quality diamonds aren’t supposed to exist. A Rio Tinto Group ore processor was configured to discard it. And what saved the diamond’s 187.7 carats from being pulverized was a fluke: Its unusual, elongated shape allowed it to slip sideways through a filtering screen.

      “It really is a miracle that it was found,’’ said Alan Davies, chief executive officer of diamonds and minerals for Rio Tinto, the operator of Canada’s Diavik mine, Foxfire’s former home. “It’s a rare find, a really rare find.”

      That’s the company’s marketing line as it shows Foxfire to prospective suitors on a worldwide tour and promotes it as the largest gem-quality diamond ever found in North America. Luckily for Rio Tinto, rare diamonds are hot, much hotter than bog-standard rough stones. Sales of those fell 18 percent last year, while their uncommon cousins rack up records. Lucara Diamond Corp. just sold an 813-carat jewel named the Constellation for $63 million, making it the most expensive of its kind—$77,649 a carat. Next month, Sotheby’s will offer one that could fetch more, the Lesedi la Rona, which at 1,109 carats is the size of a tennis ball.

      A huge area of land which was swallowed up into the North Sea thousands of years ago has been recreated and put on display by scientists.
      Doggerland was an area between Northern Scotland, Denmark and the Channel Islands.
      It was believed to have been home to tens of thousands of people before it disappeared underwater.
      Now its history has been pieced together by artefacts recovered from the seabed and displayed in London.
      The 15-year-project has involved St Andrews, Dundee and Aberdeen universities.
      The results are on display at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition in London until 8 July.
      The story behind Doggerland, a land that was slowly submerged by water between 18,000 BC and 5,500 BC, has been organised by Dr Richard Bates at St Andrews University.
      Dr Bates, a geophysicist, said "Doggerland was the real heartland of Europe until sea levels rose to give us the UK coastline of today.
      "We have speculated for years on the lost land's existence from bones dredged by fishermen all over the North Sea, but it's only since working with oil companies in the last few years that we have been able to re-create what this lost land looked like.
      "When the data was first being processed, I thought it unlikely to give us any useful information, however as more area was covered it revealed a vast and complex landscape.
      "We have now been able to model its flora and fauna, build up a picture of the ancient people that lived there and begin to understand some of the dramatic events that subsequently changed the land, including the sea rising and a devastating tsunami."
      Findings suggest a picture of a land with hills and valleys, large swamps and lakes with major rivers dissecting a convoluted coastline.
      As the sea rose the hills would have become an isolated archipelago of low islands.
