Google Ocean Released and Atlantis Found Within Days!

And yet another snippet from the "Holy Crap!" File...

Google Ocean(Google Earth) was just released days ago and an amateur has already found Atlantis. Plato's lost civilization has unfortunately moved from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic about 600 miles off the coast of Africa (hate it when that happens), but look at those ROADS on the ocean floor!

Chris Matyszczyk writes in a CNET Technically Incorrect post that a Google Spokesperson had this to say about the photo...

"In this case, what users are seeing is an artifact 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."


Anyway, if you need us for anything in the next few days, we will be scouring the floor of the Bermuda Triangle with our new toy.
