‘It’s either the Millennium Falcon or a gateway to hell’
January 31, 2012
Shipwreck surveyors found a remarkable object in the depths of the Baltic Sea, but before they start celebrating, they need to figure out what it is.
A Swedish company named Ocean Explorer have discovered an unidentified object using their sonar technology in a secret location in the Baltic Sea. Because of a lack of funding and bad timing, they have not been able to pull a team together to see for themselves. Their sonar pictures show that the object is a massive cylinder with a 60 metre diameter and a 400 metre-long tail.
‘We’ve heard lots of different kinds of explanations, from George Lucas’s spaceship — the Millennium Falcon — to ‘it’s some kind of plug to the inner world,’ like it should be hell down there or something,’ said Peter Lindberg, a diver on the team.
While the Ocean Explorer team is understandably excited about their potentially earth-shattering find, others are slightly more sceptical and are questioning the accuracy of the sonar technology.
