(ORDO NEWS) — The wreckage of the Titanic is split in two at the bottom of the North Atlantic Ocean, slowly decomposing at a depth of almost 4000 meters by the surface, but not only them.
A sonar signal detected about 26 years ago has now shown that there is something else in this underwater area.
P. H. Nargeoleth, an experienced Nautile scuba pilot and diver from the Titanic, originally picked up the tag with an echo sounder in 1996, but its origin remains unknown.
On an expedition to the wreck of the Titanic earlier this year, Nargeoleth and four other explorers traveled to a previously recorded location to find the mysterious object.
Because of the scale of the outbreak, Nargeoleth decided he was looking for another shipwreck – instead, he found a rocky reef made up of various volcanic formations and teeming with lobsters, deep-sea fish, sponges, and several species of coral that could be thousands of years old.
This is interesting from a biological point of view. The animals that live there are very different from those that otherwise live in the deep ocean,” said Murray Roberts, professor of applied marine biology and ecology at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland and one of the expedition’s researchers.
He thought it was a shipwreck, and it turned out, in my opinion, even more amazing than a shipwreck.
