I thought that all electrical equipment was getting cut off when they got within 200m of the object?
Now they're filming a "port hole" up close?
This whole things reeks of BS so much...
“Anything electric out there – and the satellite phone as well – stopped working when we were above the object,” Stefan Hogerborn, the expedition’s lead diver, told Swedish channel NDTV.
“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.”
Critics have accused Ocean X, who are professional wreck-hunters, not oceanographers, of poor science and incessant attempts to court publicity in order to secure funding.
Hanumant Singh, a researcher with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, told US magazine Popular Mechanics that the original “Millennium Falcon” image that sparked the media firestorm was taken using a cheap and incorrectly-calibrated sonar.
Charles Paull, a senior scientist at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute in Moss Landing, told the same magazine that bizarre but relatively common formations can be created by gas and fluid leaks from underneath the seabed.
As to the signal interference, it does not appear to have been a consistent phenomenon, since there appears to be extensive footage taken within several feet of the mystery object. And even if it did occur, there are plenty of underwater materials that interact with sensitive electronics.
Ocean X is currently planning commercial trips for tourists to see the “underwater UFO” in its new submersible.
. If that is the case then I find it weird that no other ships have noticed this anomaly before when going over the area nor themselves when they did the original scan over the object?
