I don't think it is. They are talking about "rounding the corner." The ROV's cable isn't THAT long.

Anyone else intrigued by these "sediment chutes?"

It's too bad nothing Tighar-related was observed during yesterday's ROV dive at Niku.  It seems the areas the scientists were interested in didn't correspond wiith areas where airplane or shipwreck parts would most likely end up.  Too steep a gradient to stop.  It was worth seeing, though, a high-powered, patient, persistent team using a state-of-the-art ROV to it's full extent.

Better luck next time!

Good Morning...I just wanted to point out that it was an awesome advantage to our team for this expedition to have taken place. I did see some things late last night Bill that caught my eye and I know their team thought things were out of the ordinary. One thing that was mentioned was the change of terrain so much around Nikumaurro. As they were ascending from 1000 meters last night they came across the lava features with the grooves in between them. Kinda like looking at erosion in the mountains per say. My analogy of this ...and looking for three hours last night tells me that if this plane went over the reefs edge...I wouldn't wanna be in it. With the rolls and the slits and rocks and the steep slopes tells me that this plane got torn up pretty bad...so much to the point was there anything left? Anyway, it was neat to see a close in depth look at the features of Nikumaurro and the surrounding terrain. A big thank you to the expedition team for going and doing this....

Yeah, I saw that.  I thought for a minute they were going to recover it.  That would have been cool!

 ;D :'(

I just deleted about 10 hours of raw video of the dive. by accident. I'm devasted.  Did anyone else record the dive, and may I get a copy via drop box or whatever?
If you can, let me know before I jump off the tail of an electra.

I'm sure someone has already thought of this but: Any chance we can get the data from their multi beam sonar scan? They scanned the entire west end of the island.

@Leon R White
Just return to their site https://schmidtocean.org/technology/live-from-rv-falkor/ and click "[Watch Live]" and you can see a rerun of all 10:28:47.

Watch videos from previous dives as well here: https://schmidtocean.org/education/rov-faqs/

Yes, we'll be able to see the multi-beam, probably some time after they get home.  Should be very useful.

I see from the email that no meaningful AE airplane evidence was found. Does Tighar want any one to point out verifiable images of gauges and such?

Camels in the clouds - I know.  Would Tighar prefer NOT to have a mysterious shapes thread on this?

Verifiable images of gauges and such??  Absolutely!

The trouble is, none of us is qualified to define what is and is not a "mysterious" shape in that environment.  The scientific team aboard Falkor had the expertise needed to spot anything unusual, and when the did they closely investigated it.  I don't think think there's any point in us engaging in a festival of pareidolia.
