Deep sea researchers discover unexplained line of holes on the ocean floor

DDeep-sea researchers have been left baffled after discovering an unexplained, organized line of holes on the ocean floor.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration made the discovery during an expedition studying the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, a 10,000-mile-long underwater mountain range, according to the Miami Herald. The oddity was found at a depth of 1.7 miles, on top of an underwater volcano near the Azores.

“During Saturday’s #Okeanos dive, we observed several of these sublinear sets of holes in the sediment. These holes have been reported in the area before, but their origin remains a mystery. Although they seem almost done Man-made, small piles of sediment around the holes look like they were dug by…something,” NOAA wrote on its Facebook page.

The surrounding terrain is a flat bed of undisturbed sand, which makes the line of holes stand out.

The discovery left scientists so perplexed that they turned to the public for theories. Among those in the comments section on Facebook were hypotheses suggesting methane gas, underwater springs, the opening of an underwater cave, a type of crab moving along the bottom of the ocean and even aliens.

The discovery was made as part of NOAA’s “Voyage to the Ridge 2022,” which seeks to map poorly understood parts of the Atlantic Ocean.
