Eldorado

"Last week, Marc Chaussidon, director of the Institute of Geophysics in Paris (IPGP), looked at seafloor maps from a recently concluded mission and saw a new mountain.

"Rising from the Indian Ocean floor between Africa and Madagascar was a giant edifice 800 meters high and 5 kilometers across. In previous maps, there had been nothing. “This thing was built from zero in 6 months!” Chaussidon says.

"His team, along with scientists from the French national research agency CNRS and other institutes, had witnessed the birth of a mysterious submarine volcano, the largest such underwater event ever witnessed. “We have never seen anything like this,” says IPGP’s Nathalie Feuillet, leader of an expedition to the site by the research vessel Marion Dufresne, which released its initial results last week."

This entire planet is seismic. A 4,000 year hiatus is a mere interlude in Earth's tectonic journey.

How is this "solved"? Can they explain what caused the humming? And if saying that they "never seen anything like this", doesn't that only raise more questions (like how can they be so sure)? And where is the actual evidence regarding the origination of the humming sound?

What a weird story.
