A South Pacific island wey marine charts, world maps, Google Earth and Google Maps dey show us say e dey, Australian scientists don talk say the thing no exist.
Google maps position the island, named Sandy Island, midway between Australia and French-governed New Caledonia. But scientists from the University of Sydney walka go the area only to find a blue 1,400m (4,620ft) of deep ocean, the Coral Sea instead of land.“We wanted to check it out because the navigation charts on board the ship showed a water depth of 1,400m in that area – very deep,” Dr Seton, from the University of Sydney, yarn the AFP news agency after the 25-day walka. “It’s on Google Earth and other maps so we went to check and there was no island. We’re really puzzled. It’s quite bizarre.
