The Truth Is Out There About UFO In Baltic Sea, Swedish Scientists Say
Fox News.com ^ | May 29, 2012 | Gene J. Koprowski

Posted on 06/02/2012 9:09:14 PM PDT by Windflier

Swedish scientists plan to explore a mystery ripped straight from the “The X-Files.”

Rather than Mulder and Scully, this adventure features Swedish researchers Peter Lindberg and Dennis Asberg. They too know the truth is out there -- and in mere days plan to visit what they call the “Baltic Anomaly.”

Last summer, while on a treasure hunt between Sweden and Finland, the pair and their research associates made headlines worldwide with the discovery of a 200-foot wide unidentified object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea. Now a team of oceanographers, engineers and deep sea divers will return to the site Friday, June 1, for a 6 to 10 day trip.

They want to find out once and for all what it really is.

“We don’t know whether it is a natural phenomenon, or an object,” Lindberg, captain of the Ocean Explorer, told FoxNews.com. “We saw it on sonar when we were searching for a wreck from World War I. This circular object just turned up on the monitor.”

The discovery was a worldwide news event, covered in the popular press, the scientific press and in the blogosphere. Many speculated that the discovery was of a long-lost unidentified flying object (UFO), that crashed into the sea -- evoking Duchovny’s alien-hunting character on the TV show.

Lindberg is clearly aware of the connection: The logo for his “OceanX Team” is clearly meant to evoke the X-Files logo. But is the truth out there this time? He aims to find out.

Assuming, just for a moment, the intrepic explorers do find an extraterrestrial craft on the sea floor, does anyone believe that would be reported?
They will find whatever is palatable to those who decide what each one of us should know.
It will be either a sunken ship, a meteor crater or a natural geological formation.
Nothing more.
Move along, sheeple, nothing to see....oh, and pay your friggin’ taxes.

I just called George Noory and he said there is nothing to worry about....that it was just a flying Swedish meatball.

While I am sure that the vast majority of UFO stories are either misidentifications or just complete BS, I will never buy that it’s all pure BS. When you have several hundred year old paintings showing some very UFO like craft, and consider they didn’t have Art Bell on the radio back then...well, it makes one wonder.

And if in fact there is ‘something’ out there/now right here,b consider just how much secret info gets leaked with Wikileaks ect.

Plus, Krugman is advocating an alien takeover...

It could be a stone platform built by humans when the sea levels were quite a bit lower.

In the 19th century, the Russian Empire experimented with circular warships...

...There was some question, however, if they they'd ever floated any in the Balitc.

I'm sure the whole expedition would be under immediate lock-down and media black out by the Swedish government, if they found a real alien spacecraft. After a few days, some story would be concocted about the expedition uncovering some classified military crash that "unfortunately must remain classified."

Could be. The expedition leaders have said that that's one of their theories.

...a long-lost unidentified flying object (UFO)

Long-lost? Someone filed a missing saucer report?

If we never hear another word about it we’ll know it was a UFO.

I remember reading about this below in 1967.

UFO Crashes at Spitzbergen, Norway, 1946 & 1952

In the early 1950s, rumors began circulating that a crashed UFO had been recovered on the Norwegian-owned island of Spitzbergen., or Spitsbergen, is one of a group of islands called Svalbard, which have been Norwegian possessions since the 1920s. The islands lie over 500 miles north of Norway, inside the Arctic Circle...

It is the craft of Bigfoot’s cousin, Webfoot. He stays mainly in his home in a Black Hole in the Bermuda Triangle but has been know to venture elsewhere.

I seen it on the History Channel.

It's the long lost clean-out/drain plug described in the Viking runes that have long mystified scholars. According to Norse legend, Kraksho, the Asgaard giant in charge of plumbing and sanitation installed the drain to middle earth in case global warming caused the seas to rise and threaten to flood the fjords. Like Thor's mighty hammer Kraksho's giant magic wrench would save the day.

This illustration records Krahsho inspecting the installation of the drain. Sadly there's no scale reference to indicate the massive size of the giant.

Scientists imagine the giant circular object once uncovered will appear to be something like this.

31/2 inch? If it was true shouldn't it be metric. ;-)

Its a Nazi wunder weapon built in 1944 to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat—Not finished in time to win the war so they sank it.

Thanks, I’ve often felt that FR has far more influence (one way or another) than anyone admits in the wider world. Or, as Zero has said about every small nation on Earth, we punch above our weight. ;’)

Maybe, maybe not... We should first ascertain if there is *serious* money to be made from the discovery. If so, then it's quite likely someone (person, corp and/or govt) would exploit the find whether extraterrestrial or not.

Personally, I firmly believe that if "they" are actually out there (which I doubt), then they are so far away as to be eternally undetectable and our paths will never cross. The Fermi Paradox (wikipedia) pretty much leads me to the conclusion that "they" don't actually exist, which I attribute to an intentional, divine design.

200 feet wide? Well, that pretty much rules out Jimmy Hoffa.
