Surprising findings from the depths

Space may be the last frontier, but on Earth there is still plenty of unknown. In addition to the impenetrable rain forests, dangerous mountain peaks and a considerable part of the Antarctic tundra, the vast majority of Terra incognita hidden water. What awaits us there? No one knows. See what amazing discoveries made deep divers in our enlightened age, and yet still have to explore a lot.

Ghost Ship

In 2010, a group of divers plunged into the Baltic Sea. The researchers were looking for a downed World War II aircraft, and accidentally stumbled on a real ghost ship. If we believe the analysis, it was built in the XVII century, and probably (judging by circumstantial evidence) belonged to the Dutch.

Another example of man-made structures at depth. Formation of rectangular limestone rocks known today as the Bimini Road. In 1978, researchers conducted radiouglevodny plates analysis, which found that the age of 3,500 years. It is likely that the Bimini Road is just fine freak of nature, but there is another version. Researchers at George. Manson Valentine, Jacques Mayol and Robert Angov (they discovered strange stones in 1958) believe that stumbled upon the remains of Atlantis itself!

Yonaguni Monument

In 1987, a diver Kihachiro Arataki, sought sharks descended into the water on the southern coast of Japan. Instead of predatory fish startled diver discovered the majestic monolithic slab, clearly of human origin. The study of deep-sea monument is now engaged in a group of researchers from the University of Ryukyusa. Team Leader, Masaaki Kimura, already put forward some pretty bold assumptions, according to which Yonaguni stones were built half a million years ago. But by whom?
