Atlantis Found?



A network of criss-crossing lines, resembling a grid of streets, was spotted 620 miles off the coast of northwest Africa, near the Canary Islands, on Google Earth. The rectangle is large in size and happens to be at one of the proposed locations of the lost city of Atlantis, which is believed to have sunk beneath the ocean around 9000 B.C. Despite that coincidence, Google has debunked the mystery, explaining that the lines are actually ship tracks created by a boat gathering bathymetric data of the ocean floor.
