There was a helicopter flying some scientists around the Arctic Ocean when they passed over some ice that had black splotches on it. They followed the ice for 15 miles and kept finding black stuff hanging and dripping from the ice. Some of it was retrieved. It was not oil or any hydrocarbon. It was organic but it was not alive. They found jellyfish and sea gulls wrapped up in the stuff. The gulls were nothing but skeletons. Nobody knew what the black goo was.
