This area is one of the most dangerous places on Earth nothing has ever been recovered from what is going on here oh my gosh that is crazy day by day.
More scientists are turning to the Sea for answers the oceans on our planet are one of the last unknown Frontiers and with the help of modern technology day by day they are revealing their secrets but some of those secrets are so strange that even after Decades of research.
We still cannot explain what they are today we dive deep into the mysteries of the sea from real proof of the existence of the Kraken to the icy Fingers of Death
These is 15 underwater discoveries that cannot be explained.
Number 15 the Megalodon tooth necklace from Titanic wouldn’t it be cool if the story from the Blockbuster movie Titanic was real and the astonishing necklace called The Heart of the Ocean was still out there well researchers have just uncovered the next best thing everyone knows the story of the Titanic the biggest and best equipped transatlantic ship of its time touted to be Unsinkable its first voyage was a spectacle that sadly ended in tragedy when the ship rammed into an iceberg and sank the Blockbuster movie about the ship was the most expensive movie ever
And it was as amazing as well as heartbreaking it details The Forbidden Love between two young people and the story of one of the most expensive jewels in the world the heart of the ocean since James Cameron made the movie there has been an ongoing interest in the ship with experts sending deep water submarines to delicately uncover its Secrets now 111 years after it sank to the bottom of the Atlantic a real necklace was found in the wreckage it’s not the Heart of the Ocean because that one is not real but the one that was found was made of gold

What They Discovered Underwater Shocked the Whole World” style=”fancy” icon=”arrow”]and had a Megalodon tooth embedded in it this is even better than a diamond the Megalodon is a prehistoric giant shark that wreaked havoc in the ocean the necklace will have to stay where it is but the question remains who of the 2240 passengers did the necklace belong to number 14 monolinear Underwater Sculpture Park
I have a friend who’s an experienced diver and he told me a story that shook him to the bones he went on a summer trip to Granada Spain and even though you’re never supposed to dive alone he couldn’t find a dive partner he decided to rent a boat and go Dive by himself he was just having fun exploring what the sea had to offer then suddenly his heart skipped and he felt a lump in his throat what he discovered in Antarctica shocked the whole world he saw terrifying figures in the distance and at first he thought he imagined it but then he caught a glimpse of it again the only other time he felt such fear was when a shark snuck up on him behind his back he deliberated whether to hurry up to the boat
Run but he decided to stay and see what it was as it came closer the figures started to become more real and that’s when it hit him they were sculptures regular-sized human sculptures adorned the seafloor covered in algae and coral he later learned it was the molineri underwater Sculpture Park which is a famous diving destination in Granada there are a couple of things that turned out well in his trip firstly he stayed alive which is always great and secondly he learned never to go diving Alone Again number 13 The Devil’s Triangle when we talk about mysterious places on our planet nothing is better known than the Bermuda Triangle also known as The Devil’s Triangle ships and airplanes go into the area never to be seen again it is difficult to count all the accidents that happened there because there are so many by some accounts over 300 vessels have gone missing in this accursed place for example a steamboat named Mary Celeste went down not far off the coast of Bermuda under unexplained circumstances and she’s not alone experts say that shipwrecks completely surround Bermuda but it wasn’t until 1964 that a journalist named Vincent Gaddis coined the term Bermuda Triangle by his account it is the area between Bermuda Florida and Puerto Rico these five hundred thousand square miles of the Atlantic Ocean are far deadlier than any other place on Earth
The first accounts about the dangers of this area came from Christopher Columbus whose ships got entangled in seaweed that incapacitated his ships but there are other theories such as sea monsters extraterrestrials and even vortices to another dimension experts say that the Gulf Stream in the triangle can potentially cause violent weather shifts and this is actually the area where most Atlantic typhoons go through then methane gas is released from the ocean floor and disruptions to the geomagnetic flux lines make the compasses go berserk but it’s not just the ships that get lost it’s also airplanes maybe we will never get to the bottom of the mystery that is the Bermuda Triangle number 12 the Mariana Trench did you know that the Mariana Trench is considered the deepest part of the ocean the lowest point of the trench is called Challenger Deep and it is around 11 000 kilometers deep that means that if you were to put the Himalayas the tallest mountain on earth into the Challenger Deep Mount Everest would still be submerged over one mile below sea level.
If you are wondering why we haven’t researched this place more let me paint a picture for you the pressure down there is one thousand times higher than normal imagine having a headache and then 1 000 elephants standing on your head that’s approximately what you would experience at the bottom of the ocean not to mention all the sea monsters living there giant squids being just one of them so we started sending autonomous submersible robots and what they discovered was even scarier the robots recorded sounds that no one can explain some people blame aliens others say it’s whales the truth is experts believe whales can make sounds we still don’t know about by some accounts sperm whales create a sonic boom that stunned its prey making it easier to catch and eat experts believe that this sound can stop a human heart but no one has witnessed it yet and stayed alive since seventy percent of our oceans haven’t been researched yet it is no wonder there are terrifying Secrets awaiting us there and most of them lay at the bottom of the Mariana Trench number 11 the unknown 70 plus percent it’s amazing how far technology has advanced Mankind in the last decades.
We sent robots to Mars and even managed to photograph a black hole yet seventy percent of our oceans are still Uncharted how is that possible covering around 70 percent of our surface the oceans are like a living organ of our planet Earth they regulate temperature and weather patterns and support Life as we know it so why do we know so little about them well deep sea exploration didn’t start until the 1960s and to this day it faces numerous challenges first of all pressure at sea level the pressure of the air pressing upon your body is around 16 PSI or pounds per square inch as you dive underwater that pressure increases significantly we mentioned it gets up to one thousand times higher on the bottom of the Mariana Trench so even when we decided to send robot submersibles down there first we had to make them sturdy enough to enjoy such tremendous courses and still be operational for thousands of hours at a time then we come to the saltiness of the sea most metallic objects used on vessels and other seafaring equipment need to be made from special kinds of stainless steel
Because salty water is incredibly corrosive but still day by day human technology is evolving so hopefully soon we will be able to unlock even the most hidden secrets of our oceans what do you think lies there number 10 the icy finger of death every kid in the world who experienced winter remembers taking down icicles from trees or roofs and playing with them but have you ever heard of brynical this strange phenomenon stupefy people for a long time it was first observed in the 1960s but wasn’t recorded in detail until 2011. it looks like the foggy claws of death descending from the surface to the ocean floor freezing everything that comes in contact with they are also called the icy Fingers of Death this strange phenomenon can be found in the Antarctic ocean leaving a trail of frozen ocean dwelling animals on its deadly path of destruction but what is it and why does it happen well it all has to do with the freezing temperatures of the Antarctic you see it takes salty water a lot more time and colder temperatures to freeze than fresh water once the ocean surface starts to freeze it forces salt out this creates a layer of extra salty water called brine that’s below freezing temperature
And heavy as it begins to sink to the bottom the water that surrounds it immediately freezes and so does the ocean bottom creating what is known as anchor ice a barnacle can be 25 centimeters in diameter and if the conditions are right it has the ability to grow a few meters a day and slow moving bottom-dwelling creatures have no chance against the icicle of death but the amazing spectacle is actually completely natural although it looks like something out of a sci-fi movie number nine the undersea River waterfalls are considered some of the most mesmerizing natural sites known to mankind people aren’t awe of the sight the sound and the spectacle that is water cascading down Cliffs but did you know that there is an underwater river and waterfall located in the Black Sea in 2010 a team of scientists was investigating the Bosphorus Strait suddenly they realize there is a channel that is over 100 feet deep but the most amazing Discovery was that there was water flowing through it its flow has Rapids and waterfalls in certain spots in its overall volume was 350 times greater than the River Thames
But how is this even possible well it turns out the Black Sea has some peculiar features to understand what actually happens there first let’s look at where the water comes from there are two main pathways through which the water in the Black Sea is replenished first it gets copious amounts of fresh water from the rivers Danube deniper and Dawn but then it gets even more salty water from the Mediterranean now everyone knows fresh water is much lighter than salty water that means that salty water goes down to the bottom and fresh water stays in the upper regions until they all mix up it’s called stratification so effectively the river at the bottom of the Bosphorus is actually extremely salty water that behaves somewhat differently than the water located above it this unique mix of circumstances creates an astonishing sight to behold number eight the sound of icebergs I’ve mentioned mysterious sounds being recorded in the Mariana Trench but that is not the only strange sound coming from the ocean and this one is even more terrifying as it comes from a place that is said to be the underwater prison for the lovecraftian monster
Like God of old called Cthulhu one of the earliest recordings of the bloop sound comes from the 1990s some scientists say it is the sound of icebergs cracking but not everyone is convinced of this Theory the discovery came by accident as experts were looking for underwater volcanic activity in the Pacific numerous takes of the strange bloop noise were recorded using underwater microphones called hydrophones and it was like nothing anyone has ever heard before the most astonishing thing is that the sound was captured by different hydrophones located more than 3219 kilometers from each other it’s incredible to think this is a sound that is probably the loudest naturally occurring sound ever recorded by man yet we still cannot decisively conclude what it is or where it comes from some scientists say that the elements of the sound are consistent with how living organisms vocalize however not even the largest species of whale such as the blue whale are capable of creating such a loud sound do you have any theories is there a gigantic creature living on the ocean floor that we still haven’t seen or witnessed could it be the Kraken or something even bigger number seven the underwater Stonehenge emerges when dry spells happen it can be devastating for people who rely on rain but a recent drought had an unprecedented benefit as it raised a stonehenge-like monument from the mud officially known as the Dolmen of guadalupero this ancient ruin was first described by a German archaeologist named Hugo obermeyer in 1926.
There were various artifacts found at the site such as 11 axes Flint knives Ceramics and even copper tools the actual Monument is a circle of around 150 massive Granite Stones believed to date to around 5000 BC dolmens are actually not rare in Europe although not much is known about them we don’t even know who made them and what their purpose was but the site was dealt a huge blow in 1963 when the dictator Francisco Franco decided to flood the area in the process of building a dam the ruin was all but forgotten until a disastrous drought hit Spain and to the Delight of archaeologists the Spanish Stonehenge appeared once again this is not the only time the Dolmen has appeared and similar droughts happened three times before this time entrepreneurial people who own boats started organizing sightseeing tours but that’s little consolation to the farmers who have suffered the most during this unseen drought the archaeologists on the other hand have another conundrum on their hands do they move the stones to another location before they are submerged again or do they leave them on the spot
Let nature take its course number six the immortal jellyfish the most harrowing ordeal of The Human Experience is coming face to face with our own mortality that’s why many feel that the Quest for immortality is the Holy Grail for mankind recently in the hopes of getting closer to that goal scientists have turned to an unlikely Source a jelly-like creature that floats in the ocean this incredible animal is teratopsis Dorney it is a unique species of jellyfish first found in the Mediterranean Sea and described in the 1880s its remarkable capabilities are perfectly described by its nickname the immortal jellyfish at 4.5 centimeters in length it is really small about the size of your pinky nail it has up to 90 tentacles and a transparent Bell that houses a bright red stomach in the middle so how did this tiny creature achieve immortality it’s probably not what most of us think of when we yearn for a long life but it is nonetheless an amazing survival mechanism whenever this animal is threatened or injured it reverts to a previous developmental stage.
It becomes a polyp think of it as a reset button with the added benefit of keeping its genetic material intact this reset button creates a polyp Colony that eventually Buds and releases Medusa that are an exact genetic copy of the original jellyfish how awesome and weird is that I’m just not sure if humans can ever make use of this concept but that doesn’t make it any less awesome number five the Milky sea Jules Fern the famous author who wrote The Incredible novel Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea wrote about a strange phenomenon that looks like the ocean starts glowing for a long time most people thought of these as imaginary Tales of a great author however in 2005 scientists discovered a patch of ocean the size of Connecticut that does just that it has been dubbed the Milky sea at first scientists disregarded this as they believe that the concentration of bioluminescent bacteria that can make this happen is virtually impossible to achieve but a scientist by the name of Steve Miller decided to delve deeper into this mystery he discovered footage from the SS Lima which traversed the Milky sea in 1995 when seeing the footage he realized that such an enormous region must be visible on a satellite image so with the help of Steve haddock from the defense meteorological satellite program they entered the SS Limas coordinates for the night the footage was made and suddenly a vast area of the ocean off The Horn of Africa started shining brightly the glowing organism is thought to be caused by a bioluminescent bacteria called verbio Harvey and it covered an area of over 15 400 square kilometers.
It’s just amazing how even the tiniest creatures can create amazing spectacles that often puzzle even the greatest biologists well done nature well done number four the kiss of death when I first heard of the sarcastic Fringe head I figured someone was pulling a prank there’s no way there is an animal with such a name but then I saw it and all I can say is it’s even weirder than the name suggests how can I explain what this fish looks like well the first thing I thought about when I saw its gaping Jaws was the acid-spitting dinosaur from Jurassic Park you know the one that has flapping skin around its neck and a blood curdling scream well this fish reminds me of that of course there’s no scream or burning acid but the display of ferociousness is spot on these fish are found off the North American coast of the Pacific they are usually less than 10 inches long they are not very impressive as they peek from their underground layers but once they pop out that’s when they show themselves in all their fearsome Glory as you might have guessed they are extremely Territorial
Do not refrain from attacking Intruders much bigger than themselves they have a set of needle-like extremely sharp teeth that they use to catch prey and defend their realm their defense has various stages at first they repeatedly open and close their mouths to ward off passersby when it doesn’t work they open their mouths as wide as possible making them appear several times larger than they really are they also use their mouths to fight each other for territory in a weird form of mouth-to-mouth wrestling damn nature you’re scary number three the alien shark if you haven’t realized it until now the oceans on our planet hide mysterious creatures that no one has ever seen before but did you know that some of those species have existed for millions of years compared to us humans they are the real rulers of Earth I am talking about a specific kind of shark the frailed shark it is a real living fossil that first appeared in the oceans when T-Rex rule the land even though it is a shark it is unlike any other shark or fish for that matter on this planet it looks more like a snake.
It really does look like it’s slithering through water more than swimming in its mouth there are rows after rows of hooked razor sharp teeth just waiting for something to bite a total of 25 rows can hold over 300 teeth and each of them has dozens of tiny points branching off nothing can escape their bite it has the ability to gape its mouth extremely wide and swallow much bigger prey just like a snake and similar to a snake its digestive system can stretch and expand so as slowly but surely devours Whatever Gets inside it’s Latin name depicts a snake dragon or serpent however its modern name is a bit more original it comes from a row of six Redline gills that resemble in Elizabeth and rough from Shakespeare’s play at least some scientists seem to have a sense of humor but why didn’t they just call it the Shakespeare shark number two the purple orb now that we’ve touched upon the subject of aliens there was a curious life form filmed off the coast of California that had experts perplexed.
It was a purple orb located one and a half kilometers beneath the surface an exploration vessel called Nautilus was used for an observation mission in an underwater canyon When It Came Upon an almost glowing spheric object the crew was stunned and started speculating as to what it might be even though the orb looked magnificent I found that crab to be much more disturbing the way the crustacean interfered as the vessel was filming the orb made the sign to speculate it could be an egg Sac similar to what spiders make some thought it was a jellyfish While others contested that claim however no one was really prepared for an answer looking for answers the crew used a special vacuum hose to retrieve the orb for further study it was then sent to Harvard University and its Museum of comparative zoology to everyone’s surprise the strange object was revealed to be a new species of snail actually a variant of the sea slug to be more precise these slugs are part of the plural Branch genus but none of them in California are purple so this might actually be a new species I bet those scientists are pooping their pants with joy if they discovered a new species but,
I still can’t stop thinking of that creepy crab what was it doing number one the giant oarfish monster in addition to the Kraken there is one more legend that plagued the nightmares of seafaring people for centuries the giant sea serpent from scandinavia’s dramangadier to Japan’s Touhou there’s little more needed to instill Terror into a man traversing the ocean and the thought of a prehistoric monster in the shape of a snake capable of wrapping itself around any ship and crushing it to Pieces yet it seems that the origin of these myths comes from an unlikely Source the oarfish this mysterious animal lives in the furthest depths of the ocean and is seldom seen but when it does appear it looks like nothing else on this planet and many cultures consider it to be a bad Omen supposedly people have found giant oarfish stranded on shores just days before massive earthquakes had taken place the fish itself is not rounded like most snakes it has a flat body similar to a ribbon and can reach up to 36 feet in length it’s silvery reflective body allows it to camouflage itself in the water
And is often found floating vertically despite its notoriety it actually has no teeth but uses its slightly concave mouth to catch Krill and crustaceans due to the fact that its body resembles a ribbon and can sometimes reach up to 36 feet in length this unusual fish may have inspired a lot of myths about sea monsters it has a silver reflective long and flat body it swims and turns with a dorsal fin that runs the length of its body its toothless mouth it abrupt slightly concave profile make it ideal for removing Krill and Crustaceans from the water it is a deep sea fish that camouflages itself in the water floating vertically thank you for joining me today I just love to find new things about our oceans it’s like their Mysteries have no bounds join me next time when we explore more exciting stuff and don’t forget to like share and subscribe so you don’t miss a thing
