• 5 most mysterious enigmas of modern history
The history of mankind is literally teeming with mysteries and secrets. And what can we say about the ancient world or the Middle Ages, when even the twentieth century has left us a legacy of many mysteries that we will not soon shall understand them. In this collection, we will tell you about five of the most bizarre and interesting mysteries of the twentieth century, which is still plagued by fans to pry into other people's business.
1. The disappearance of the train "Sanetti".
This story began in July 1911, when the tourist company "Sanetti" decided to organize recreational trips for some representatives of the wealthy estates of Italy. By train consisting of a locomotive and three cars, 106 passengers went on a trip. Everything went as usual to the Lombard ... tunnel, which entered the composition, but the outside has not left! He just disappeared! Escape, or rather do not divide with the others, was only two passengers. They were lucky enough to leave the train at the last moment. And they talked about the strange cloud is very thick white mist that enveloped the train and caused passengers terrible panic attacks, similar to insanity.
After the disappearance, the tunnel and all the surroundings were carefully examined and studied. But no trace of the train or the passengers could not be found. Soon it immured and safely forget about it as well as about the story. However, in 1926, one of the relatives of the missing passengers composition, viewing archival documents, discovered a very unusual record. It was reported from nowhere appeared in Mexico, 104 Italians, who claimed that arrived by train directly from Rome. And the biggest oddity was the fact that this record was dated 1845.
The Italians then considered insane and placed in a psychiatric hospital under the supervision of doctors, as evidenced by the record left the clinic psychiatrist. Eyewitnesses noted that the effects and clothing Italians did not comply with the time, and some of these things have survived to this Day. In particular, the "1907" snuffbox with an inscription.
Unsuccessful attempts to find the missing train, or at least to understand what happened lasted several decades with him, as long as during the Second World War bomb completely destroyed the walled tunnel.
2. The Philadelphia Experiment.
In October 1943, in an atmosphere of secrecy US Navy had a very unusual experiment codenamed "Philadelphia". The aim of the experiment was to develop a new technology that would allow the military destroyer generate an intense magnetic field, through which light and radio waves would have to go around the ship. That is actually an experiment task was to create a stealth ship, a kind of "Flying Dutchman", undetectable to the eye and enemy radars. However, according to numerous publications in the post-war tabloid press, the experiment did not go immediately as planned. The ship is in the dock, after the equipment turned out to be first enveloped in green light, and then completely disappeared. He soon, however, there was, but not in place of the experiment, and in Norfolk, Virginia. According to the Western press, where he was seen by numerous witnesses.
After the completion of such "successful" experiment in living on a ship we found 21 people, 13 of whom died from burns, electric shock, radiation, and fear. And what happened to the other 27, does not give any explanation - people found literally fused, merged with the ship's hull.
3. The death of group of Dyatlov.
There in the Urals mountain Otorten, which is considered to be anomalies area. At various times in these places there were tragic events. One of those horror stories took place in February 1959. On the slopes of the mountain, whose name is translated from the Mansi language sounds like: "Do not go there", a group of tourists had died under mysterious circumstances. Search party, which found them, and forensic medical experts were surprised by what they saw there. Around the scene and downhill snow was like melted off at a very high temperature.
The cause of death was found, was hypothermia. But in the eyes immediately rushed 3 things. First: why two people lying next to a campfire completely naked and in a dynamic pose. Second, one of the members of the group who died had a crack in the forehead. Third: cadaveric spots were found on the body parts that are not in contact with the ground, which is contrary to the rules of medicine! After all, this is only possible if the body after death overturned ... But any trace, except for those that left the tourists have not been obrnaruzheno.
It is strange as the fact that reserves are found in the tent, remained intact. Moreover, people were suddenly get out of it. And all at once. And not just through the exit, but if cutting from inside the tent, trying to get out of it. Unusual and footprints in the snow left by members of a group: someone walked barefoot from the tent, someone in one sock and boots. A place where tourists were killed 9, named Dyatlov Pass after the group leader.
Until now put forward different theories about what happened on the side of this sinister mountain. Someone, based on the fact that on the same day near the places was an unusual celestial phenomenon (luminous ball moving in the direction of the north-east), say that tourists were killed by an alien intervention. Others say that the next rocket fell, after the secret testing of our troops.
4. The Tunguska meteorite.
The fall of the Tunguska meteorite June 17, 1908 (June 30, old style) in the Stony Tunguska River area accompanied by a strong air blast capacity of about 40-50 megatons. First flying fireball which exploded at a height of about 7-10 km, and then for 5 hours lasted magnetic storm. Explosion tumbled down the forest on an area of 2,100 square meters. km, a distance of 200 km from the epicenter of the houses povybivalo glass, and the noise was heard even further - at a distance of 800 km.
What's unusual, it would seem, in a simple fall, yes, a large meteorite? Indeed, the wreckage from space bombard our planet is constantly ?! But ... the Tunguska meteorite was never found. Even the place of its fall found only in 20 years at a distance of 100 km from the explosion. In addition, there is still not clear whether it was actually a meteorite, or something else. There are different assumptions from the collapse of the alien spaceship to a top-secret scientific experiment on the use of the latest energy weapons.
5. The monster of Loch Ness.
Mysterious Loch Ness is placed on a highlands of Scotland and girded by vertical cliffs rising two thousand feet. Loch Ness is one of three lakes, saturating a large valley - a huge rift, fenced off northern Scotland from the rest of Britain. The depth of Loch Ness sometimes comes to nine hundred feet. It's really a huge lake conceals within itself enormous secrets. In his darkest waters neprosmatrivaemye the fault of the peat bottom, many times faced with an unusual monster, reminiscent of those that lived on this planet for millions of years before humans.
It is noteworthy that the very first mention of the Loch Ness monster belongs to the year 565 BC. e. However, in those days the appearance of the monster explain the machinations of evil forces. The next time talking about it until many centuries later. From 565, the year before the beginning of the 19th century, no mention is not found. However, between 1933 and today we have seen it more than 5,000 times! Unless, of course, the witnesses do not lie.
So what is it? Theories of mass. The most popular states that unknown Loch Ness monster - an extinct dinosaur millions of years ago - a plesiosaur. According to proponents of this theory, he fell into a trap after the result of tectonic shifts of the land rose and the sea turned out to be part of prehistoric lake. However, the probability that one individual can live at least several centuries, rather small. In this regard, the population of the mysterious monster must have at several tens of individuals, in order to be able to reproduce. In addition, this population had a large amount of food for sustenance. But for such purposes Loch Ness little, and it is unlikely it can feed many plesiosaurs.
