Quelle:cnn.comAn international scientific expedition has revealed a South Pacific island roughly the size of Manhattan and clearly marked on online maps and marine charts does not, in fact, exist.
The 'undiscovery' of the island -- which until now was midway between Australia and New Caledonia -- highlights how much there still is to learn about the oceans, scientists say.
"We saw this mysterious island on all the scientific maps and weather maps but not on this one navigational chart that was on our ship," Ph.D student Sabin Zahirovic, part of the research team on board the RV Southern Surveyor, told CNN.
"So we decided to go see if it was actually there."
The ship didn't find an island
Eine rund 156 Quadratkilometer große Insel zwischen Australien und Neukaledonien... einfach weg. Oder nie dagewesen?
...die gibt's gar nicht.
