Ever since it’s discovery in June 2011, the odd-shaped object has been fascinating scientists. The device is about 210 feet long, and lies about 300 feet beneath the waves. Given its size and estimated weight it is impossible to lift it from the sea floor.
Theories as to what it could be have ranged anywhere from interesting till outright outrageous. One theory stated that the object must be part of a crashed UFO fleet that was left here by aliens many aeons ago.
Another commentator pointed out the striking resemblance to the Star Wars Millennium Falcon spacecraft, given its form and grey appearance.
Due to the extreme coldness of the water and it’s northern location in the Scandinavian territories, divers only have a limited amount of time when they can investigate. This summer, a Norwegian team named Ocean X, tried to figure out the mystery.
Stefan Hogerborn, part of the diving team, said that strangely enough the electrical equipment stopped working as they got within a range of 200 metres of the object on the seabed.
Mr Hogerborn declared: “Anything electric out there – and the satellite phone as well – stopped working when we were above the object. And then we got away about 200 meters and it turned on again, and when we got back over the object it didn’t work.”
Another diver of the team, Mr Peter Lindberg, said: “We have experienced things that I really couldn’t imagine and I have been the team’s biggest sceptic regarding these different kinds of theories.”
We will let you decide for yourself.
