Inexplicable ‘golden Egg’ Discovery In Alaska’s Deep Sea Baffles Scientists by ashatoda: 11:54am On Sep 13, 2023
The oceans are known to hold a lot of mysteries, yet few are as disconcerting as the recent discovery of a "golden egg-like" object on the seafloor near Alaska's coast. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration researchers were baffled by the discovery of this object found resting on a cluster of rocks during an unmanned livestream expedition.

A photograph of the discovery was shared on the official X (formerly Twitter) page of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), sparking curiosity among researchers and X users. The NOAA research team made this find on August 30th, at a depth of approximately two miles in the depths of the Gulf of Alaska.

The team employed a remote-operated robotic arm to prod the ‘egg’, and carefully suctioned the orb into a tube for a more detailed examination and DNA analysis.

Experts worldwide were equally mystified by this unusual find. Deep-sea ecology professor Kerry Howell from the University of Plymouth told the Daily Mail, "In my 20 years exploring the deep sea, I have not seen anything like that."

"There are many, many undiscovered species in the deep sea, so this could be related to a new species quite easily," Professor Kerry Howell noted, emphasizing the vast potential for new discoveries in the depths of the ocean.

University of Edinburgh Professor Murray Roberts agreed, suggesting that the object could indeed be an egg casing. He explained, "Several species, including vulnerable deep-sea fish like sharks and rays, lay their egg cases on seamounts or in cold-water coral habitats. Hence the hole — something hatched out and swam off."

This intriguing discovery is part of NOAA's ongoing Seascape Alaska 5 expedition, scheduled to end by September 16. The expedition is dedicated to "filling gaps in our understanding of the region by conducting focused mapping and remotely operated vehicle operations in waters deeper than 200 meters (656 feet)."

Throughout the course of this expedition, the team is delving into the exploration of deep-sea coral and sponge habitats, as well as other underwater geological features, including mud volcanoes, at depths spanning from 656 feet to 19,685 feet.

Science has given you modern tools to increase farm product and also to process the produce, it's now left for you to use it or not plus they have also shown you the relationship between scarce resources and the mouth to consume it, it's now left for you to handle. The well developed countries tend to keep their population in a manageable while you guys love to reproduce persec

That golden egg might have been there for years
Many mysteries in the ocean.
The humans should just leave them alone. They don't want our interference

The speed of light is too slow (not that I myself is faster than a snail). But, in the context of interplanetary and intergalactic communication, speed of light is too slow to facilitate realtime communication.

The universe is like a written program that has the speed of light as it's foundational constance, hence it's currently impossible for us to go beyond that constant.

Wow!! Guess what's actually faster than the speed of light? The speed of thought!!

These words were from a renowned scientist and doctor, but even before I read it, I have already written a book on the four mediums of getting information where I highlighted the powerful importance of using your imagination as a medium of getting information.

That is one thing I love about the White people... they're always going for discovery while the black folks are busy praising a non existent fairy Sky-daddy who has never lifted a hair to help them ...or even defend them against ordinary Fulani herdsmen...


Even the second ones that always slam their heads are always at the blood letting end looking for who is blasphemous in order to conduct killings while their counterparts in the middle east are always ahead.... Black nation have missed it...
