The Earth's Missing Crust or Atlantis Rising?

The Earth’s Missing Crust!!


Atlantis Rising?

Santa Cruz De Tenerife, Canary Islands - British scientists have embarked on a mission to study a huge area on the Atlantic seabed where the Earth's crust is mysteriously missing and instead is covered with dark green rock from deep inside the planet.

The team intends to use sonar to build up an image of the seafloor and then take rock cores using a robotic seabed drill developed by the British Geological Survey in conjunction with Dr. MacLeod.

Dr. MacLeod said the hole in the Earth's crust was not unique, but was recognized as one of the most significant. He said it was an "open wound on the surface of the Earth", where the oceanic crust, usually 6-7 km thick (3.7-4.3 miles), was simply not there.

Could this be Atlantis Rising?
