It's a mystery that's been going on for no less than 100 years, if only the most modern mentions are taken into account. We thought we'd finished with the legendary Loch Ness monster, nicknamed Nessie, and yet a major investigation will be launched in the lake within the next few days.

A new research operation in 2023

Will we have an answer to the mystery of one of this world's (or our imagination's, as the case may be) best-known fantastical beasts? Indeed, it might finally be happening. The Scottish Lake Exploration Centre is launching a new operation looking for any trace of Nessie. The search will take place on 26 and 27 August.

It's not certain that the sea serpent will emerge. In fact, as early as 1934, the same year as the first photo mentioning what appears to be some kind of plesiosaurus, a vast operation was launched on the shores of the lake, to no avail.

The original hoax

At the time, 20 people were stationed on the shores of Loch Ness, equipped with binoculars and cameras, ready to finally capture or catch a sight of the Scottish monster. Unfortunately, the attempt proved unsuccessful. Incidentally, Robert Kenneth Wilson, the man who first 'photographed'Nessie, admitted years later that he had produced a hoax.

But too late, the myth was born and the story of the sea serpent travelled the world. Consequently, new expeditions are launched to find this monster which is supposed to be lurking in the dark depths of the lake...

Unsuccessful expeditions

Two new expeditions were launched, but none was conclusive. In 2003, the BBC set to work and, using its 600 sonars and satellite tracking, came to the conclusion that Loch Ness simply doesn't exist. No trace on the surface or at depth.

But Nessie was unstoppable, and in 2007, after a video showing a moving shadow in the lake, the search for a plesiosaur hiding in the water began anew.

Is Nessie really a monster?

But could it be that Nessie is not a sea serpent or any other dinosaur, but a marine phenomenon linked to the lake itself? Otherresearchers have also speculated that the monster could just as easily be a sturgeon or a group of seals.

We can't wait to see what the search come out with! We know that it will use underwater drone cameras and a hydrophone.
