There is a UFO at the bottom of the Baltic Sea — maybe.
Sonar has located a curious disk-shaped object on the floor of the Baltic Sea, between Sweden and Finland. Enthusiastic treasure hunters and UFO buffs say it looks like the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars. (I think it looks more like Pac Man.) It’s about 200 feet in diameter and lies at the end of a churned up track of sea floor. No one knows for sure what it is, and the speculation is that it might be a Russian spacecraft or a UFO.
The discoverers don’t think they can get investors to underwrite exploration of the object, because there is no promise of lost gold or silver. So, they’re hoping a TV production company will shell out for a Geraldo Rivera-type expedition to find out what the object is. Of course, in all likelihood the result would be as disappointing as the show where Geraldo opened an old safe and didn’t find anything of note.
It’s wildly improbable, and it sounds like a trite and fantastic science fiction plot — but let your mind wander for a moment, and imagine the reaction in the world if we discovered a spacecraft burrowed in the silty bottom of the Baltic Sea.
