Russian scientists have located a secret Nazi facility that was abandoned before the end of World War II.
Constructed in 1942, the mysterious base, which was named 'Schatzgraber' or 'Treasure Hunter', had remained lost for so long that many people believed it to be little more than a myth.

The story goes that the Nazi scientists stationed there all had to evacuate the facility after eating polar bear meat that made them sick. Some have speculated that the team may have been deliberately poisoned however it is now believed that the meat was infected by a parasite.

The Russian scientists who discovered the base have reported finding hundreds of objects left behind during the evacuation including shells and other WWII weapon fragments.

One thing that still remains a mystery however is what the base was used for. With a name like 'Treasure Hunter' it almost seems like there could be something important still hidden there.

Whether the Russians will succeed in unraveling its secrets however remains to be seen.

It strikes me that the "much ado about nothing" article was actually much ado about nothing. The fact that the original article included info on the base indicates it's existence was known beforehand. It's the actual site they're talking about. Either it was physically concealed previously by ice and snow or they've just never investigated it before now. Either one still amounts to a discovery. (I notice some articles say re-discover) And while it may be relatively common knowledge now, odds are good it was considered "secret" at the time. Somebody's playing jiggery pokery with words but witho... [More]

  I thought that was pretty much what the article said - the claim has some jiggery pokey (LOL cool) going on. The WIki information was backed by a source, which went back again to a 2003 book. It more says the aspects the media have cited as unknown have actually been known for some time - from the link: The citation refers to a 2003 book published by author Dege, Wilhelm called War North of 80: The Last German Arctic Weather Station of World War II. And in fact, the “discovery” of this weather station mentions all of these facts as if they haven’t been made known to the public before Friday.... [More]

That's it in a nutshell. Article 2 is fussing about article 1 as if they implied the base was previously completely unknown, which if you read it is not the case.  "Discover" is a loaded word but they're both guilty of exaggeration. That polar bear stuff didn't come from out of thin air obviously. (I'd compare the find to the recent excavation work on several explorer's huts in Antarctica. They were in plain sight but what was in them was a revalation.)

Yep, this one just tells us they are exaggerating, when the other seems to gloss over that a bit .... Always good to have a wider perspective!
