How and why has it now "resurfaced" (pun intended)? After a little digging, I guess this is the answer: See: http://tinyurl.com/3gywjpl Seems, based on the earlier C/NET story at the link noted, that this story first emerged in August of last year, but is only now being cited again as Peter Lindberg, the guy behind the original blip of publicity created by his "Ocean Explorer" ship's discovery of the two "round" objects imaged by synthetic aperture radar (SAR) from a sonar "drone" linked to the Swedish group of salvagers' ship, is now saying that they "...originally had no plans to return to the spot, but the spike in interest from the public has led them to begin planning a return trip." That "spike" was six months ago, btw. From the SAR images, it seems much less likely a 'UFO', the term Lindberg used initially (sounds like a publicist's promo), than either an anomalous geological formation or possibly a submerged archeological site. Maybe. I await breathlessly the next exciting installment of Lindberg's belated return and subsequent uncovering of something... mundane. Steve Listen to 'Strange Days...
