A South Pacific island, shown on marine charts and world maps as well as on Google Earth and Google Maps, does not exist, Australian scientists say.
I'm confused. I understand that hand-drawn maps and charts could be wrong, but surely there's at least one satellite image that shows nothing but sea?
I also don't get how the Google maps satellite image appears to have a black mark over the island. Was the island manually added to the satellite image?
Maybe I'm missing something here (apart from an island).
