Considering how long humans have inhabited this planet, the fact that there are still mysteries to be solved and new information to be absorbed is nothing short of astounding.
We’re closer than ever because of the internet and the streamlined communication it allows.
It’s never been easier to show people the wonders and mysteries of the natural world around them.
We can argue, we can theorize, and we can all experience things that were simply not possible a century ago.
Thus, we felt obligated to inform our audience of a recent finding made by marine biologists in the Pacific Ocean.
An expedition to a deep-sea ridge north of the Hawaiian islands reportedly uncovered what can only be described as an underwater version of the famous Yellow Brick Road.
According to reports, the expedition set out to examine a crack in the seamounts along Hawaii’s Lili’uokalani Ridge.
The crew of the Exploration Vessel Nautilu discovered the ‘yellow brick road’ in question using a remotely driven vehicle, and they appear to have been just as dumbfounded as those who have seen their video footage subsequently.
The group broadcast their exploration in real time, recording the eerie moment they stumbled upon what appears to be a road built of yellow, rectangular pieces.
One crew member said: “It’s the road to Atlantis.”
“The yellow brick road?” another person chimed in.
As viewers of the YouTube video afterwards noted, the researchers appeared just as astonished by the discovery. “This is bizarre. Are you kidding me? This is crazy?” one of the crew members said/
There was much conjecture about the meaning of the rock pattern on the internet, however it was later revealed that the phenomenon could be explained scientifically.
The researchers referred to the creation in the aforementioned YouTube video as “an example of ancient active volcanic geography.”
To quote the video’s description: “At the summit of Nootka Seamount, the team spotted a “dried lake bed” formation, now IDed as a fractured flow of hyaloclastite rock (a volcanic rock formed in high-energy eruptions where many rock fragments settle to the seabed).”
Take a look at the video below:
It’s not quite the golden brick road, but it’s amazing to find one anyhow.
