Ocean X team returns from their first expedition investigating the mysterious object they discovered in the Baltic Sea.
The expedition was supposed to provide answers, but instead yielded yet more questions.
“We looked at our dive computer, the deep sea diver computer, and it said minus one degree that’s pretty cold for a diver it should really be impossible to have that cold water it actually turns into ice at zero degrees but that could be explained by the movement of the water.”
Also, some strange phenomenon occurred…
A main objective of the dive was to film the object, and yet the camera stopped working when they approached the object.
“Why isn’t anything working, 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 so that’s kind of strange as well.”
Mr Hogerborn says he has never experienced anything like this during his 20 years as a professional diver.
Dennis Åsberg of the Ocean X team is one hundred percent sure after the first expedition that they have found something quite unusual.

Dr. Ronald Pies, the editor-in-chief emeritus of the Psychiatric Times, laid the theory to rest in the July 11, 2011, issue of the Times with this staggering admission:
“In truth, the ‘chemical imbalance’ notion was always a kind of urban legend — never a theory seriously propounded by well-informed psychiatrists.”
The point is, for decades the whole basis of ...

Going up? Way up?
The space elevator - An idea which used to be pure speculative science fiction has gained renewed interest.
