#8 Pretty old, indeed — the IFL Science article is datelined 06 SEP 2019.

And from WacoInMN’s link:

18 February 2020 / Kiel. Two racks equipped with environmental sensors and installations for a power supply disappeared without trace at the end of August 2019. This equipment was installed by the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel and the Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht Centre for Materials and Coastal Research on the seafloor in a restricted area at the exit of Eckernförde Bay. Now, with the help of the survey, wreck search and research vessel (VWFS) DENEB of the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH), one of the racks was found and recovered. It was located north-northeast of its original location, upside down on the seabed at a depth of about 20 metres.

Good work finding the rest of the story, dear Waco. Thank you!

#9 WacoInMN, to create a hot link: first type a bit of text to hold it, then highlight the text, then paste the URL into the pop-up link thingy. You got the last step perfectly, but gave it nothing to attach to. No worries — we’ve all climbed that learning curve at some point.
