'Mysterious' Baltic Sea Object Is a Glacial Deposit
By Natalie Wolchover | LiveScience.com – 6 hrs ago

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.

That's way more interesting to me then some kind of alien ship, but not as interesting as the theory that it was some kind of Nazi weapon against submarines.

"We think it is a glacial deposit" In other words, they still have not idea what it is.

From the article posted on other thread: http://www.unexplain...howtopic=232944

Quote

The divers recently gave samples of stone from the object to Volker Brüchert, an associate professor of geology at Stockholm
University. Swedish tabloids quote Brüchert 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."

In other words, an expert appears to back up their claims that this seafloor object is unexplained, and perhaps is an Atlantislike ancient building complex.
To double check, Life's Little Mysteries consulted that expert. Turns out, neither he, nor any

of the other experts contacted about the Baltic Sea object, think there is anything mysterious about it.
"It's good to hear critical voices about this 'Baltic Sea mystery,'" Brüchert 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.

Doesn't sound like they know for sure what it is.

I read somewhere that Peter Lindhberg believed that the Swedish Coast Guard were jamming their equipment and that the US and Russia were doing military drills in the area.

Whats striking about this is that I have seen far more efforts to debunk and discard the object rather than explore it.  If it was the result of ancient civilazations, I believe we have a mandate to know.

I would feel much better is the exploration were being done by scholars instead of a private company.

A glacial deposit can interfere with electronic equipment? Interesting. :tu:

Sounds to me like he's saying its a stone....which doesn't disprove that someone may have put it there

Thanks for the original, though.
