    Something Is Preventing Bertha From Tunnelling Under Seattle

    Link: Under Seattle, a Big Object Blocks Bertha. What Is It? - NYTimes.com



    ...Something unknown, engineers say — and all the more intriguing to many residents for being unknown — has blocked the progress of the biggest-diameter tunnel-boring machine in use on the planet, a high-tech, largely automated wonder called Bertha. At five stories high with a crew of 20, the cigar-shaped behemoth was grinding away underground on a two-mile-long, $3.1 billion highway tunnel under the city’s waterfront on Dec. 6 when it encountered something in its path that managers still simply refer to as “the object.”..
    Guesses for the identity of "The Object" already offered:

    A Kimberlite deposit
    Tommyknockers
    Monolith [A La 2001]
    Megatron
    Godzilla

    Some suggestions less credible than others...
