Treasure hunting team dives down to research the previously discovered "Millenium Falcon"-shaped object in the Baltic Sea.
(Image source: CBC ) BY ALLY MCENTIRE ANCHOR ANA COMPAIN-ROMERO That mysterious object found deep in the Baltic Sea has been re-examined by Ocean X, the Swedish treasure-hunting team. NTDTV reports... “A year has passed since two treasure hunters found a mysterious UFO-like object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea. With huge public interest and a secret sponsor, they are now ready to return for further investigation.” After the dive, researchers came up with more questions than before about the “Star Wars” spaceship look-alike. OceanExplorer says the divers have never seen anything like this. “ The object had an egg shaped hole le ading into it from the top, as an opening. On top of the object they also found strange stone circle formations, almost looking like small fireplaces. The stones were covered in something resembling soot.” The object was originally discovered in June 2011. Since then, many have been discussing their theories about what it could be. Blogger Stan Hernandez says it’s an old UFO. “I have concluded that this is an S-42, which is basically an older model of the flying saucer that made their way into popularity in the 1940s... This is most likely an abandoned craft...” There is a 984-foot path down which the disc seems to have been pushed. Technabob.com’s Shane McGlaun believes the circular form is just natural. “I’m betting it’s just a giant chunk of rock hauled by an ancient glacier across the bottom of the Baltic.” CBC News reported Ocean X team researche r Dennis Aasberg posted about the most recent dive on Facebook: "Everything is top secret now … because of the risks … hope you all understand this is no game. But the truth will be reported shortly." Ocean X says it is avoiding calling the object a UFO, but Business Insider says the team could be using the object’s mystery as a marketing tool. “These guys aren't UFO enthusiasts, they are people who dive for sunken treasure from ancient wrecks, purely for profit. But that doesn't completely rule out the possibility of this being a hoax...” The research team says it will have to do more investigation through sonar and sampling to determine what’s really resting on the seafloor.
