Satellite "Reveals" Atlantis Plato wrote of an island surrounded by several circular structures - concentric rings - some consisting of Earth and the others of water. We have in the photos concentric rings just as Plato described. Photo by satellite, BBC.

A scientist says he may have found remains of the lost city of Atlantis, BBC reported.
