The seabed has always aroused great scientific interest, of which humanity currently knows only a small part.
Probes are frequently carried out by experts to discover as many things as possible around the seas, and in addition to discovering new forms of life and artistic discoveries of the highest value, we happen to find ourselves faced with something unexpected.
One of the latest missions, which will end on September 16th, has been called Alaskan seascapes 5 It aims to Mapping the entire Gulf of Alaska seafloorIts area is 1,500,000 square kilometers and its maximum depth reaches 4,700 meters in the Shelikov Trench, which is located off the southern coast.
About halfway through, Noah (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) reported a truly unique discovery. This type of Golden eggsIt was found empty inside at a depth of 3,000 meters in the Pacific Ocean on the wall of an underwater volcano.
The egg, as you can see from the pictures, presents itself Golden in color and has a hole in its surface, as if something had come out or tried to enter. However, the most peculiar aspect of the whole case concerns its unexpected composition, which is currently under examination.
The golden egg at the bottom of the ocean, what do experts say?
Thanks to advanced technology, in addition to video broadcasts, the agency was able to collect samples for analysis thanks to A A suction tube that brought some of the “projectile” to the surface From the egg that, surprisingly, it turns out to be Much silkier than expected.
According to experts, its origins are still unknown because it is something that has never been seen before and therefore it is not currently possible to understand whether we are talking about Eggshell or Dead Sea sponge long ago. To have any certainty, we will need to keep track of test results DNA analysis Which should arrive in the next few days.
This is just one of many examples of missions that in recent years have led to a better understanding of the world around us, however, according to estimates, 70% of the Earth’s surface is still home to an astonishing variety of life forms that remain uncataloged and unknown. Moreover, it is very difficult to explore the seabed due to the pressure of the water and the absolute darkness that surrounds its true identity.
