A couple weeks back when I posted on some dude finding treasure on Google Earth, I faux challenged somebody to find some mythical s**t. Low and behold the UK’s Sun Tabloid just reported someone finding the Lost City of Atlantis on Google Earth. The picture you are looking at is the size of Wales and is 3.5 miles deep and 620 miles west of Morocco near the Canary Islands. Most tattered scrolls indicate Atlantis to be somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean near the Bermuda Triangle to near islands outside of the Italy and Greece areas. Here’s what a Google spokesperson had to say about it:
“What users are seeing is an artefact of the data collection process.… Bathymetric (or sea floor terrain) data is often collected from boats using sonar to take measurements of the sea floor.… The lines reflect the path of the boat as it gathers the data. The fact that there are blank spots between each of these lines is a sign of how little we really know about the world’s oceans.”
I’m so glad this happened. Here’s a link to the actual spot on Google Earth. Leave a comment on what you think the next find will be?
