Why not a UFO or USO Let be a little adventurous...
Thousands of emails, reports in media outlets ranging from Life's Little Mysteries to Fox News and CNN, grandiose business proposals that never materialized. Peter Lindberg and Dennis Åsberg sure have had a turbulent year.
When the question comes up about the location of the now famous circular finding, they just smile.
-It’s located on the ocean floor. If we say more than that, we’ve said too much. This business is prone to gold fever, says Dennis Åsberg. He’s sitting together with Peter Lindberg on the bridge of the ship Ancylus, which is moored at a shipyard in Vaxholm.
On lower deck, their colleagues are working against the clock. Frozen pipes have to be replaced, the engine must go through a test run and the cabins need to be furnished. On Friday the Ancylus, once a research vessel in the Swedish Fisheries Service, will see a new use.
With 13 crew members and advanced diving equipment on board, the Ancylus will depart from the port of Norrtälje towards the location of the USO (Unidentified Submerged / Sunken Object) in the Baltic Sea.
It was in June last year that the Lindberg and Åsberg team balked over a sonar image of the sea floor. It wasn’t a wreackage they saw, but a round circle of about 60 meters in diameter, and something that the team interprets as a track that would suggest that the object possibly slid onto its current location.
The past year has at times been "quite hysterical", they say. Media in the U.S., Russia, China and South America have reported on the finding and countless UFO enthusiasts have contacted the team by email. A religious group has warned that an investigation might conjure up the earth's destruction.
-There are a lot of theories. An old submarine base, or a meteorite? Maybe it's only a natural structure on the sea floor, but even so, we believe that it might be of geological interest, says Dennis Åsberg.
The project is a detour from what the team sees as its core business, which is to find shipwrecks.
-We have a private investor who is more curious than us, says Peter Lindberg and gives more information about the expedition — among other things, they have a ROV that will analyze the area. Before they send down divers, samples of the sea floor will be collected and analyzed.
Lindberg has a long career as a diver. Among other things, he is known for finding the Jönköping shipwreck in the Åland Islands archipelago in the late 1990s, along with its cargo of expensive champagne.
-Sometimes I wonder, why am I not sitting in an office crunching numbers? But then again, this is a childhood dream that has stuck with me. I started diving at age 16, and already back then I said that I would one day support myself looking for shipwrecks.
The expedition is expected to last around two weeks.

The divers are now down and investigating the circle and reports from the ship say they are really amazed. There is definitely something unusual hiding at the seabed – a Mystery Beneath. More information and pictures will be released next week.
