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.
Lindberg discusses various possibilities for what the object might be: "It has these very strange stair formations, and if it is constructed, it must be constructed tens of thousands of years ago before the Ice Age," he said in the radio interview. (The peak of the most recent Ice Age occurred some 20,000 years ago.)
"If this is Atlantis, that would be quite amazing," he said. ..
Lindberg acknowledges that the object could instead be a natural formation, such as a meteorite that penetrated the ice during the Ice Age, or an underwater volcano; however, he gives the impression that scientists are baffled by it. ..
Also adding titillation, Lindberg says a documentary is being made about the seafloor anomaly the location of which he has not disclosed and he's saving some juicy details for the footage. "We're not telling everything," he said. "We will reveal some quite interesting things in the documentary."
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."

so much for ancient city or abandoned old space craft remnant.
OK where’s the wierd hair guy saying it’s Aliens?
Oh.....so that’s where that thing went.
That's funny. IOW, the object's shape reminded someone of the fictional Hollywood represenation of a crashed (Unidentified Flying Object) "spaceship."
How dumb has our society become? Or has it always been this dumb?
I don’t believe the ‘ol man is still there..
His wife drove him to a breakdown . . .
Do witches float or sink? I think we've always been like this...
I don’t care what it is but it’s awesome.
It looks like a cap on a bottle which is buried. When that cap gets finally lifted, inside the bottle will be found THE lost BC.
They have one of these things in a park in Oxnard.
Is that?....is that?......blast marks?
