Unexplained mysteries of the world (20 photos)

Scientists still are mysteries of the history, which can not give a logical explanation.

The first stone calendar.

In the Sahara Desert in Egypt are the oldest known astronomically aligned stones in the world: Nabta (Nabta). For a thousand years before Stonehenge, people built a stone circle and other structures on the lake, which has long dried up. More than 6,000 years ago, stone slabs three meters high was dragged over a kilometer to create this place. Pictured rocks - only part of the entire complex, which has been preserved. Although currently the Egyptian Western Desert completely dry, it was not so in the past. There is good evidence that in the past there were a few wet cycles (when up to 500 mm of precipitation falls during the year). The most recent refers to the interglacial period and the start of the last glaciation, it was about 130,000 to 70,000 years ago. During this period, the region was a savannah and support the lives of many animals, such as bison and the extinct big giraffes, antelopes and gazelles different species. From about the 10th century BC, this area became the Nubian desert to get more rain, filling the lake. Early humans may have region attracted sources of drinking water. Archaeological findings may indicate that human activity in the area is known, at least somewhere in the 10th and the 8th millennium BC.

Chinese mosaic of lines.

These strange lines are at coordinates 40 ° 27'28 .56 «N, 93 ° 23'34 .42» E. There is not much information available about this "strange" but beautiful mosaic of lines does exist, it carved in the desert province of Gansu Sheng in China. Some records indicate that the "lines" were created in 2004, but nothing officially confirm this assumption seems to have been found. It should be noted that these lines are located near the Mogao Grottoes, which is a World Heritage Site. Lines are drawn on a very long distance, and at the same time retain their proportions, despite the curvature of the terrain.

Unexplained stone doll.

In July 1889 in Boise, Idaho, found a small human figure during the operation to drilling. The find sparked intense scientific interest in the last century. Unmistakably made by human hands, "doll" was discovered at a depth of 320 feet, which allowed to carry her age at the time, far from the arrival of man in this part of the world. The find has never been challenged, but only to say that this is, in principle, impossible.

Iron bolt, age 300 million years.

He was found almost by accident. Expedition Center "MAI-Kosmopoisk" engaged in search of fragments of the meteorite in the south of the Kaluga Region, Russia. Dmitry Kurkov decided to look normal, seemingly, a piece of stone. What he found, can overturn our understanding of earth and space history. When a stone brushed the dirt on its cleavage was clearly visible somehow got inside ... bolt! Length of about an inch. How did he get there? Bolt with a nut on the end (or - what this thing looked like too - reel to the rod and two discs) sitting tight. So, got into the stone back in the days when he was a sedimentary rock, clay bottom.

Ancient rocket ship.

This ancient image in a cave in Japan dates back to more than 5000 year BC ...

Moving stones.

Anyone, even NASA could not yet explain. It is best to just watch and marvel moving rocks in the Dry Lake in Death Valley National Park. The bottom of the lake Racetrack Playa is almost flat, 2, 5 km from north to south and 1, 25 km from east to west, and is covered with cracked mud. Stones move slowly on the clay bottom of the lake, as evidenced by the long traces that remain after them. Stones move on their own without the help of others, but no one has ever seen or recorded the movement of the camera. Such stones detected motion in some other places. However, the number and length of the next dry lake Reystrek Playa unique.

Electricity in the pyramids.

Teotihuacan, Mexico. Large sheets of mica were found embedded in the walls of this ancient Mexican city. The nearest place - quarry where mined mica, located in Brazil, thousands of miles away. Mica is currently used in energy production. In this context, the question arises as to why the builders used this mineral in the buildings of the city. These ancient architects knew some long-forgotten sources of energy to use electricity in their cities?

Dog Death

Suicide dogs on the bridge in Overtown, near Milton, Dumbarton, Scotland. Built in 1859, the bridge near Overtown famous unexplained cases where dogs, apparently committed suicide by jumping from it. These incidents were first recorded in the 1950s or 1960s, when it was noticed that the dogs - usually long-nosed species, such as collies - quickly and unexpectedly jump off a bridge and fell from a height of fifty feet, crashing to their deaths.

Fossil giants

Fossilized Irish giant discovered in 1895, their growth is more than 12 feet (3.6 m). The Giants were discovered during mining operations in Antrim, Ireland. This image from the British magazine Strand, December 1895 "height of 12 feet 2 inches, chest girth, 6 feet 6 inches, arm length - 4 feet 6 inches. There are six fingers on his right leg. " Six fingers on his hands and feet resemble some of the characters from the Bible, which describes the six-fingered giants.

Pyramids of Atlantis?

Scientists continue to explore the ruins of megaliths in the so-called Yucatan Channel near Cuba. They were found at a distance of many miles along the coast. American archaeologists who discovered this place, immediately declared that they found Atlantis (not for the first time in the history of underwater archeology). Now the place is sometimes visited by scuba divers to admire the magnificent underwater structures. All other interested parties can experience the only footage and computer reconstruction of buried underwater city, in the age of the millennium.

Giants in Nevada

Legend Indians of Nevada on 12 feet of red giants, who lived in the area when they arrived. According to the history of the American Indians, the Giants were killed in a cave. During excavations in 1911 was discovered that the human jaw. Here's how it looks next to the artificial human jaw. In 1931, two skeletons were found in the bottom of the lake. One of them was 8 feet (2.4 m) tall, the other - a little less than 10 (3 m.).

Unexplained wedge

This aluminum wedge was found in Romania 1974godu, on the banks of the river Mures, near the city of Aiud. Found it at a depth of 11 meters, close to Mastodon bones - a giant, like the elephant, the extinct animal. Find itself very similar to the head part of a huge hammer. The Archaeological Institute of Cluj-Napoca, allegedly went artifact was determined that the material from which made this wedge - is aluminum alloy, covered with a thick layer of oxide. Alloy contained the 12 different elements, and finding attributed to the category of countries, as well as aluminum was not discovered until 1808, and the age of the artifact, given its location in the layer together with the remains of extinct animals, determined, approximately 11 thousand years.

"Plate Loladoffa»

"Plate Loladoffa" - this summer 12000- stone dish found in Nepal. It seems that Egypt is not the only place that is visited by extraterrestrials in ancient times. This clearly demonstrates the disc-shaped UFO. There is also a pattern on the disc. Character is surprisingly similar to the aliens, known as Grey, «gray».

Hammer of pure iron alloy

Puzzling mystery to science is ... an ordinary-looking hammer. The metal part of the hammer has a length of 15 cm and a diameter of about 3 inches. He literally sinking into the limestone age about 140 million years, and is stored together with a piece of rock. It's a miracle caught the eye of Mrs. Emma Hahn in June 1934 in the rocks not far from American town London, in the state of Texas. Experts who examined the discovery, rendered a unanimous conclusion: the hoax. However, further studies conducted by various research institutions, including the famous Battelevskoy Laboratory (USA) have shown that the situation is much more complicated. First, a wooden handle, a hammer which planted outside already stiffened and turned completely inside and coal. So, too, her age millions of years old. Second, the specialists in the Metallurgical Institute of Columbus (OH) amazed the chemical composition of the hammer 96, 6% Fe, 2, 6 and 0% chlorine, 74% sulfur. No other impurities could not be detected. So pure iron did not receive the entire history of the earth industry. In the metal is not detected in either a single bubble iron quality even by modern standards extremely high and causes many problems, as the metal content is not found, used in metallurgical industry for producing different types of steel (such as manganese, cobalt, nickel, tungsten, vanadium or molybdenum). Also, the absence of impurities, and the percentage of chlorine unusually large. Astonishing that in iron found no traces of carbon, whereas in the iron ore deposits from the earth always contains carbon and other impurities. Generally speaking, from a modern point of view, it is not of high quality. But here's what the item iron "Texas Hammer" does not rust! When in 1934 from a rock chipped piece of rock with ingrown tool, metal in one place is severely scratched. And for the past sixty-plus years on the scratch does not appear the slightest signs of corrosion ... According to Dr. K.E.Bafa, director of the Museum of Antiquities minerals, which stores the hammer, finding comes from the Early Cretaceous period - from 140 to 65 million years ago . On the current state of scientific knowledge, mankind learned to make such tools only 10 thousand years ago. Dr. Hans-Joachim Tsilmer from Germany, detailed for the mysterious discovery, concludes: "This hammer is made for an unknown technology."

The highest stone processing technology

The second group finds that put the puzzle to scientists, make artifacts created after the adoption today of the time of appearance of man on earth. But the technology that was used to create them, we have become known recently or are unknown until now. The most famous discovery of this group can be called the crystal skull found in 1927 during excavations in Belize Mayan city Lubaantuma. The skull is cut from a piece of pure quartz and has dimensions 12h18h12 centimeters. In 1970, the skull was analyzed in the laboratory of "Hewlett-Packard". The results were stunning. The skull was created without complying with the natural axis of the crystal, which is impossible in modern crystallography. When working on the skull were not used metal tools. According to the restorers first quartz Hacked diamond chisel, and then for a more thorough treatment of the crystalline silicon used sand. To work on the skull was spent about three hundred years, which may be perceived as an incredible example of patience and recognize the use of high technology unknown to us. One expert "Hewlett-Packard" said the establishment of the Crystal Skull is not a question of skill, patience and time, but it's just not possible.

Fossilized nail

However, most often in the rock are objects in their appearance similar to nails and bolts. In the XVI century viceroy of Peru kept in his office a piece of rock, which clung to 18-inch steel nail found in the local mining. In 1869, in Nevada in a piece of feldspar raised from great depths, found a metal screw length of 5 cm. Skeptics believe that the appearance of these and many other subjects can be explained by natural causes: a special kind of mineral crystallization solutions and melts, the formation of pyrite cores in the interstices between the crystals. But pyrite - is iron sulfide, and break it, yellow (which is why it is often confused with gold) and has a pronounced cubic structure. Eyewitnesses findings clearly indicate iron nails, sometimes covered with rust, and pyrite formation rather be called gold, instead of iron. Also, there is an assumption that the rod-NIO - a fossilized skeletons belemnite (invertebrate marine animals that lived in the same time as dinosaurs). But the remains of belemnite found only in sedimentary rocks and never in indigenous, such as feldspar. In addition, they have a strong skeletal form, and confuse them with something else impossible. It is sometimes argued that gvozdeobraznye NIO are melt fragments of meteorites or fulgurites (thunderbolts), obtained by a lightning strike in the rocks. However, finding a fragment or trace left millions of years ago, is extremely problematic. If the origin of gvozdeobraznyh NIO still possible to argue, then about some findings can only shrug.

Ancient battery

In 1936, German scientist Wilhelm Koenig, who worked in the Archaeological Museum of Baghdad, brought a strange object that was found in the excavations of the ancient Parthian settlement not far from the Iraqi capital. It was a small earthenware vase height of about 15 centimeters. Inside it was a cylinder of sheet copper, its base covered with a cap seal, cylinder top cover layer of resin, which also held the iron rod, aimed at the center of the cylinder. From all this, Dr. Koenig concluded that in front of him was an electric battery, created almost two thousand years before the discovery of Galvani and Volta. Egyptologist Arne Eggebreht produce an exact copy of the findings in a vase filled wine vinegar and connected meter, shows the voltage at 0, 5 B. Presumably the ancients used electricity to be applied to objects of a thin layer of gilding.

The largest stone carved by man

The largest of all the stones carved by man is a stone Lebanon. Its weight is 2,000 tons. It was intended for Baalbek, which is a 2-hour drive from Beirut. Terrace Baalbek built of stone blocks that reach 20 meters in length, 4, 5 meters high and 4 meters in length. These stone blocks reach up to 2000 tons. Terrace much older temple of Jupiter, located on it. I wonder how the carving, and then transported and built of stones such ancient people? And to date, there is no technical means for movement of such goods.


Antikythera mechanism (other spellings: antikitirsky, andikitersky, Antikythera, Greek. Μηχανισμός των Αντικυθήρων) - a mechanical device found in 1902 on the ancient sunken ship near the Greek island of Antikythera (Gr. Αντικύθηρα). Dates from about the year 100 BC. e. (Possibly up to 150 BC. E.). Kept in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens. The mechanism contained 37 bronze gears in a wooden case, which were placed dials and arrow, on the reconstruction was used to calculate the motion of heavenly bodies. Other devices such complexity unknown in Hellenistic culture. It uses a differential gear, which, as previously thought, invented until the XVI century, and the level of miniaturization and complexity comparable to the mechanical clock of the XVIII century. Approximate dimensions of the mechanism assembly 33 × 18 × 10 cm.

Figures astronauts from Ecuador

Figurines of ancient astronauts found in Ecuador. Age & gt; 2000 years. In fact, so full of such evidence, if you like, read Erich Von Denikin. He has many books, one of the most famous - "Chariots of the Gods", there are shown as physical evidence, and decipher cuneiform writings and other stuff, in general quite interesting. True believers vehemently read contraindicated.
