    I don't know much about it, but this looks interesting. :cool:

    Sorry, it's the Sun. That and there's been enough evidence to nearly definitively point to the true identity of Atlantis. While I have a respect for real science I think that people seeking another Atlantis are a bit obsessed :p

    Over the centuries, thousands of towns and cities have been lost to the sea. Some fall into it as the cliffs they stand on errode, others are overwhelmed as the low-lying land they're on is flooded.

    The photo may well show evidence of the foundations of a lost settlement, but I think the interest is purely archaeological rather than mythical. I wouldn't get too excited about 'Atlantis' being under there...

    How sad do some people have to be to search the entire ocean on Google Earth... and then send off what the find to the sun?!

    Probably nearly as sad as scouring for rumours on Apple gear.

    Yes, if they're trying to say those are streets then one building would be almost the size of Tenerife...

    Doesn't make sense. Too large. Perhaps it was peopled by giant ogres - or maybe it's Godzilla's secret lair.

    No streetview?:D:D If Google is willing to buy me a submarine, I'll photograph the area for them.:cool::cool:

    I'll bet it's those crop circle aliens.:p This is their revenge for the US government cutting up their compatriots, who made a pit stop at Roswell.

    i still think Atlantis is in the Bahamas and has been taken over by little bratty kids while there parents go and gamble and get drunk ;)

    If Atlantis was so advanced wouldn't they have built a boat or something after all Noah did it... :p

    There's one simple way to prove or disprove this – they reckon it's the size of Wales so all we need to do is completely submerge the Principality and we'll see what it looks like.

    Job's a good 'un.

    Actually it was more of a flying city then a spaceship. Granted it could go into space but it was first and foremost a city.

    Lazy journalist units when writing an article:

    • It's really big: about the size of Wales.
    • Quite big: about the size of a football pitch.
    • Not so big: about the size of a double-decker bus.

    Ooh, and I approve of your plan, I'll have a beach front property! :D

    the image is interesting but it's hard to imagine anything on that scale actually built. there is nothing else on earth that compares. not even close.
    certainly it's not a city, as any of the single 'blocks' would be itself as large as a big city. if they were real, they'd be like some huge and very long canals.

    it seems also improbable that something this obvious would have gone unnoticed until now.

    on the other hand, for my understanding bathymetric artifacts look quite different from that (look on the ocean floor just off rhode island for some obvious examples).

    maybe someone at google just 'beautified' the ocean just for kicks.

    i am sure some sonar-equipped boat is on its way as we speak to verify the claim.
