On a thousand kilometers from the coast, near the Canary Islands, was five kilometers depth discovered a huge rectangle with a kind of pattern, like the streets. The spot corresponds to a description by the Greek philosopher Plato said about the city, 9,000 years before Christ in the waves would have disappeared.
But Google, the discoverers disappoint. The grid pattern is caused by the way at this point the sonar images of the ocean floor made the boat in straight lines back and forth hazards. These strips are then glued to the computer.
