Did They Just Find the Road to Atlantis?

Late last month, oceanographers aboard the EV Nautilus vessel were out exploring the floor of the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument, a submarine range of volcanic mountains off the coast of Hawaii, when they came across what looked like a well-preserved brick road 3,376 feet below the surface of the sea.

The discovery was captured on video. “It’s the road to Atlantis,” one scientist is heard saying. “This is the yellow brick road,” another chimed in. “This is crazy,” an additional voice exclaimed.

What they found has a known geological explanation, but when you look at the video, it sure looks like a manmade road.

To get the full explanation, watch the above video and read this article in the New York Post.
