атланты держат небо на собственных руках!
Тут две статьи, с них выборка небольшая... Ниже оригинал сообщения.
В данной статье говориться что в новой программе от компании google в которой можно просматривать поверхность дна (под водой) земли были найдены такие снимки, похожие на города... незнаю правда ли но как видимо шутят это город Атлантов, ещё шутка есть такая: Есть ли у кого нибудь батискаф, я бы одолжил на время...
3,5 мили вниз
Координаты на земле: (N31.381 W24.375)
Размеры: 160km x 120km, практически 20,000 km2 или около 26 площадей Нью-Йорка.
Atlantis found by Google Earth? No way!
According to The Sun, aeronautical engineer Bernie Bamford was browsing through Google Ocean when he came upon this formation showing a perfect rectangle the size of Wales lying on the bed of the Atlantic Ocean nearly 3½ miles down. A series of criss-crossing lines that looks like a large city enclosed by the a boundary appears in Google Earth. I launched Google Earth myself to see, entered in the coordinates (N31.381 W24.375) and sure enough, there it is.
Now, it could simply be a series of seams in the topographic scans where areas are being tiled together along with missing scan data that has to be interpolated. However, according to The Sun article, Google responded as follows:
Google today claimed the criss-crossing lines were sonar data collected as boats mapped the ocean floor.
But the internet giant said "blank spots" within the lines could not be explained.
So has Atlantis finally been found? Didn't Edgar Cayce, the "American Prophet" say that Atlantis would be discovered soon after the millenium? Anyone got a bathysphere I can borrow? I'll get to the bottom of this.
Impossible! That pattern is approximately 160km x 120km, almost 20,000 km2 or about 26 times the area of New York City. Far, far too large to be an antique city. It’s has to be something else than Atlantis.
Google is officially denying widespread Internet rumors that its Google Earth software located the mythical sunken city of Atlantis off the coast of Africa. Either that, or Google is totally trying to hide something. Since I always appreciate a nice juicy conspiracy theory, I'm going to go with the latter.
Is this Atlantis? Apparently not, according to those meanies at Google.

From what it sounds like, a British aeronautical engineer was playing around with the new Google Earth 5.0, which includes undersea data, and noticed something funny off the coast of Africa, about 600 miles west of the Canary Islands, that resembled a pattern of a street grid. According to the United Kingdom's Press Association, the pattern of streets equated to an area the size of Wales.
In case you've had more important things to read about for the past few thousand years, Atlantis was a legendary island city first mentioned by Plato, allegedly a hard-core naval power located somewhere near North Africa that disappeared when it sank into the ocean. Guess global warming was a problem back then, too.
Anyway, most people think that Plato made it up, kind of like how those guys in Georgia made up the story about shooting Bigfoot, but others just won't stop believin'.
So this guy is trawling the ocean floor with Google Earth--ah, if only we had that kind of free time on our hands--and was quick to announce his discovery. It looks like The Telegraph reported the story first, adding that the exact coordinates are 31 15'15.53N, 24 15'30.53W.
Recently, Google's mapping products have revealed everything from a creepy dude walking around with a sniper rifle to what appear to be U.S. drones in Pakistan.
But when it comes to Atlantis, Google totally had to rain on everyone's parade. "It's true that many amazing discoveries have been made in Google Earth, including a pristine forest in Mozambique that is home to previously unknown species and the remains of an ancient Roman villa," a statement from Google read. "In this case, however, 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."
I smell a cover-up!
In other news, that pendulum map on last week's "Lost" was totally awesome.
