A “UFO-shaped” object, found at the bottom of the Baltic Sea last year, has puzzled many.
And a Swedish expedition that plunged into the deep eventually surfaced with more questions than answers.
Covered in soot, with little “fireplace”-like structures and lying at the end of a 300-meter “runway” – this is not something you would expect to find sitting on the sea floor.
And whatever you think about extraterrestrial life, “the thing” is still there and there has to be an explanation.
So what could it be ?
On June 19, 2011, a team of Swedish treasure hunters was exploring the bottom of the Baltic Sea with their sonars when they noticed a bizarre, disc-like structure at a depth of 90 meters.
Back then, international experts failed to explain the sonar images.
In 2012, after months of preparation, the Ocean X Team, as they call themselves, went back in order to unveil the mystery.
“We've heard lots of different kinds of explanations, from George Lucas's spaceship – the Millennium Falcon – to ‘It's some kind of plug to the inner world,’ like it should be hell down there or something,” The Daily Mail quoted one of the founders of the Ocean X Team, Peter Lindberg, as saying.
