Unexplained mysteries of the world (20 photos)

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

The first stone calendar.

In the Sahara Desert in Egypt lie 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 build this place. Depicted stones - only part of the entire complex, which has been preserved. Although the current western Egyptian 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 rain falls in a year). The latest relates to the interglacial period and the start of the last glaciation, it was from 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 large extinct giraffes, antelopes and gazelles different species. From about the 10th century BC, this area of ​​the Nubian Desert began to receive more rain, filling the lake. Early humans may have region attracted sources of drinking water. Archaeological findings may indicate that the human activity in the region is known, at least somewhere in the 10 th and the 8 th 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 a beautiful mosaic of lines does exist, it is carved in the desert 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 still retain their aspect ratio, despite the curvature of the terrain.

Unexplained stone doll.

In July, 1889 in Boise, Idaho, found a small human figure during well drilling operations. The find sparked intense scientific interest in the past century. Accurately made by human hands, "doll" was discovered at a depth of 320 feet, which made it possible 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 said 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 change our understanding of the Earth and cosmic history. When a stone brushed the dirt on its cleavage was clearly visible somehow got inside ... bolt! A length of about a centimeter. How he got there? Bolt with a nut on the end (or - what this thing looked like, too - with a rod and reel with two discs) sitting tight. So, I 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.

No one, even NASA could not yet explain. It is best to just watch and wonder to move stones 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 tracks is theirs. Stones move on their own without the help of others, but no one has ever seen or recorded the movement of the camera. Such movements stones recorded in some other places. However, the number and length of traces of dried-up 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 - the quarry where mined mica, located in Brazil, thousands of kilometers away. Mica is now 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 dog on the bridge in Overtown, near Milton, Dumbarton, Scotland. Built in 1859, the bridge near Overtown famous unexplained cases when a dog appears to have committed suicide by jumping from it. These incidents were first recorded in the 1950s or 1960s, when it was noticed that the dog - usually long-nosed species like Collie - quickly and unexpectedly jump off a bridge and fell from a height of fifty feet, crashing to his death.

Fossil giants

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

Pyramid of Atlantis?

Researchers 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 have discovered this place, immediately declared that they found Atlantis (not 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 filming and computer reconstruction of the city was buried under water, 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 it was discovered the man's 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 town of aiud. They found him at a depth of 11 meters, close to Mastodon bones - a giant, like the elephant, extinct animal. It finds itself very similar to the head part of a huge hammer. The Archaeological Institute of Cluj-Napoca, which allegedly went artifact was determined that the material from which made the wedge - is aluminum alloy, covered with a thick layer of oxide. The alloy contained the 12 different elements, and finding attributed to the category of the country, as aluminum was opened only in 1808, and the age of an artifact, given its location in the layer together with the remains of an extinct animal, determined approximately 11 thousand years.

"Plate Loladoffa»

"Loladoffa Plate" - a 12000- summer stone dish found in Nepal. It seems that Egypt is not the only place that was visited by extraterrestrials in ancient times. This clearly shows a UFO in the shape of a disk. There is also a pattern on the disc. The character is remarkably similar to the aliens, known as Grey, «gray».

Hammer of pure iron alloy

Puzzling enigma for science is ... an ordinary-looking mallet. The metal part of the hammer has a length of 15 centimeters and a diameter of about 3 centimeters. He literally sinking into the limestone age about 140 million years, and is stored together with a piece of rock. This miracle caught the eye of Mrs. Emma Hahn in June 1934 in the rocks not far from the American town of London, in the state of Texas. Experts who examined the find, rendered a unanimous conclusion: the hoax. However, further studies conducted by various academic institutions, including the famous Battelevskoy Laboratory (USA) have shown that the situation is much more complicated. First, a wooden handle, which is planted on the hammer, already stiffened outside and inside and all transformed into charcoal. Hence, it is also the age of millions of years. Second, the specialists of 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. Such pure iron is not received in the history of the earth's industry. The metal is not found any bubble quality iron even by modern standards extremely high and causes many problems, as no detected content of metals used in the metallurgical industry in the production of different grades of steel (such as manganese, cobalt, nickel, tungsten, vanadium or molybdenum). Also, there are no impurities, and the percentage of chlorine unusually large. Astonishing that the iron has been 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 some detail iron "Texas Hammer" does not rust! When in 1934 on a piece of rock chipped rocks with ingrown tool, metal in one place is severely scratched. And for the past sixty-plus years in the scratch does not appear the slightest signs of corrosion ... According to Dr. K.E.Bafa, director of the Museum of Antiquities minerals, which holds this hammer, discovery comes from the Early Cretaceous period - from 140 to 65 million years ago . According to the current state of scientific knowledge, mankind learned to make such tools only 10 thousand years ago. Dr. Hans-Joachim Tsilmer from Germany, was engaged in a mysterious discovery in detail, concludes: "This hammer is made for an unknown technology».

Highest technology stone processing

The second group of findings that put the puzzle to scientists, make artifacts, created after the adoption today of the time of appearance of man on earth. But the technologies that have been used in their creation, became known to us 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 carved from a piece of pure quartz and measures 12h18h12 centimeters. In 1970, the skull was analyzed in the laboratory of the company "Hewlett-Packard". The results were stunning. The skull was created without observing the natural axis of the crystal, which is impossible in modern crystallography. When working on the skull are 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. At work on the skull it 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 of the experts, "Hewlett-Packard", said that the creation 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 the 18-inch steel nail found in the local mining. In 1869, Nevada in a piece of feldspar raised from great depths, found a metal screw length of 5 centimeters. Skeptics believe that the emergence 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 in the interstices between the rods 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 speculation that the rod NIO - a fossilized skeletons belemnite (invertebrate marine animals living 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 shape 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 shard or trail left by 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 Konig, who worked in the Archaeological Museum in 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 made of sheet copper, its base closure cap with a seal, the cylinder on top of the cover layer of resin, which also held an 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 discoveries of Galvani and Volta. Egyptologist Arne Eggebreht produced an exact copy of the findings, poured in a vase wine vinegar and connected measuring device shows the voltage at 0, 5 W. Presumably the ancients used the electricity to be applied to items of a thin layer of gilding.

The largest stone carved human

The largest of all the stones carved by man is a stone Lebanon. It weighs 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 long. These stone blocks reach up to 2000 tons. Terrace much older than the temple of Jupiter, located on it. I wonder how the carving, and then transported and built from the stones of the ancient people? And to date, there are no technical means for the movement of such goods.


Antikythera mechanism (other spellings: antikitirsky, andikitersky, Antikythera, Greek. Μηχανισμός των Αντικυθήρων) - a mechanical device found in 1902 on the sunken ancient ship near the Greek island of Antikythera (Gr. Αντικύθηρα). Dates from about the year 100 BC. e. (possibly up to 150 BC. e.) [1]. Stored in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens. The mechanism contained 37 bronze gears in a wooden case, in which were placed dials and arrow, for the reconstruction, was used to calculate the motion of heavenly bodies. Other devices such ease unknown to Hellenic culture. It uses a differential gear, which, as previously thought, invented until the XVI century, and the level of miniaturization and lightness comparable to the mechanical clock of the XVIII century. Approximate dimensions of the mechanism assembly 33 × 18 × 10 cm.

Figures astronauts from Ecuador

Figures ancient astronaut found in Ecuador. Age & gt; 2000 years. In fact, so full of such evidence, if you will read Erich Von Denikin. He has many books, one of the most famous - "Chariots of the Gods", there are given both physical evidence and deciphering cuneiform and other other generally quite interesting. True believers ardently read contraindicated.
