"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention to arrive safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: Wow!! What a ride!". Said to to Dean Karnazes by a running buddy.
It really would be cool it was something alien but I think it is a meteorite or an asteroid. That could explain the trail it made on the bed, and the unusual formation of the stone caused from the heat as it hit the atmosphere then cooled in the water..
Samples of the Baltic Sea object were reportedly taken on the last expedition. It was claimed that these were submitted for analysis, apparently to Stockholm University. This was on July 24th. The delay is getting a bit long, with no word about the results. I wonder if a university analytical lab would continue working, outside the regular academic term. If not, this could account for the delay, as the last term ended in June and the Autumn one doesn't start until early September. The results of these tests should. it seems, either confirm that the object is simply a rock, or show some material unusual enough to warrant further examination.

thank you for posting that! Unfortunately, my office computer has no sounds, and my new flat has (yet) no internet.... if ANYBODY on here is willing to give a short written summary on the interview, i'd really appreciate it!

Some new things from the interview:
* The anomaly us circular, 50 meters in diameter, and 50 meters above the bottom.
* Later on Peter Lindberg says the 'pillar' is 7 meters high....
Now what is it??
* They sent samples to Stockholm University, but the people there are on vacation now, so no results can be expected soon.
* On the next dive (before September, when the conditions get worse) they hope to take real scientists with them, because they are just treasure hunters.
* Geologists say it can't be the cone of a volcano, it's impossible.
* The tract or trail near to the object is a 1000 meters long ridge.
* The stones found on top of the object probably came from dropping down from melting ice sheets during the (last?) ice age. These stones have soot on them you can scrape off. One of the stones was, according to a geologist, made of basalt, and of a type you only find in the Mid Atlantic Ridge... The divers took that stone because it had no sediment on it, unlike the rest of the stones.
* IF it is a construction, it must be a 100,000 years old, or 40,000 years old, but not anything recent.
* Peter says he's not telling everything because a documentary is being made about it (before the end of this year), but they have some aces up their sleeves... And, most importantly, it is NOT a hoax.
* He says it's not a meteorite or asteroid that hit the water because that should have left a crater. But it could have impacted on the mile thick ice sheet, and than sank further down.
* On the next expedition they will look closer at the second anomaly that's about 200 meters away from the first anomaly. It's about 40 meters in diameter, or 40 by 30 meters, and has angular features. It is not raising 50 meters from the bottom.
*They plan to do the 3d expedition mid August, but not later than mid September.
* Disturbances of the electrical equipment happen when they are within 500 meters of the object.
