1. Father Yukon Magazine
Pioneer researcher Jack McQuesten (also known as the “Father of the Yukon”) helped establish trading posts for gold miners who went north in the late 1800s in search of luck. His handwritten journal was believed to have burned down during a fire in a year. However, in 1967, the researcher's journal was unexpectedly found by a resident of Dawson, Ralph Troberg, who studied the contents of the boxes that his late father had inherited.
The magazine captures the chronicle of the life of McQuasten during the years 1871-1885, which he spent in the Yukon.Although the magazine was published as a book in 1952, the magazine is important because it has not been edited. Today his journal is kept in the Yukon Archives in Whitehorse, Canada.
2. 1937 Cord 812 Supercharged Convertible Phaeton
To raise funds for the acquisition of the now-defunct car maker Auburn Cord Duesenberg, in 1960, teacher Glenn Prey from Tulsa, Oklahoma sold his vintage car of 1937, the Cord 812 Supercharged Convertible Phaeton, which he restored with his hands. The collection car for $ 8,000 was purchased by local TV station owner and car collector Jimmy Lick, and in 1962 he resold the car.
In 1968, Prey began to look for his beloved Cord in order to buy it back for any money, but the car seemed to have fallen through the ground. As a result, Prey died in 2011, and a few years later a stranger from Michigan called his son Douglas, who inherited his father’s case. It turns out that it was the owner of Cord, who so was looking for Glenn. The car has stood in his barn for the past 45 years. As a result, the son bought a car in memory of his father for a six-figure sum.
In June 2016, an Englishman lent his BMW to a friend so he went to the Stone Roses concert at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, England.He drove to Manchester and left the car in the garage.

As a result, the police found a lost BMW, but the owner was billed at the rate of $ 6,150 for the cost of parking.
4. Nuclear bomb
In 2016, Canadian diver Shaun Smirchinsky announced that he found a UFO on the ocean floor during a dive near Hyde Guayi, an archipelago 80 km west of British Columbia. In fact, as it turned out, he found the object "Broken Arrow" (this is the code name for accidents with US nuclear weapons).
In 1950, a B-36 bomber crashed during a training flight in British Columbia, Canada. Fortunately, the bomb was unreal, training and there was no charge of plutonium required for an atomic explosion.
5. Eastern Airlines Flight 980 Flight Recorders
On January 1, 1985, an Eastern Airlines plane, following flight 980, was approaching El Alto Airport near Bolivia, Bolivia, Bolivia, when it suddenly fell in the mountains at an altitude of 4000 meters. El Alto is the highest international airport in the world. None of the 29 people on board the Boeing 727 survived.
The flight recorders could not be reached due to the extremely difficult access to the crash site. In May 2016, Dan Futrell and Isaac Stoner were able to reach these recorders while climbing Illyani Mountain. The results of the analysis have not yet been determined.
6. Sea container
The lost cargo container on the ocean floor has become the object of a whole scientific study to determine what effect its presence may have on marine life. Every year, as many as 10,000 of these containers are washed away from the decks of cargo ships. Marine biologists have discovered that the 12-meter-high container has become a habitat for marine snails and crabs, which feed on snail eggs. They investigated it with the help of a robotic submarine.
Billionaire Paul Allen, one of the founders of Microsoft, financed the search for Musashi, a Japanese battleship during the Second World War. At the time of its construction, the ship was the largest and heaviest warship ever built. As a result, it took as many as eight years to find the wreck of a ship in the Sibuyan Sea among the Philippine Islands. And Allen started this whole venture because of his fascination with the events of the Second World War.
Rumors about a lost city, which was known by various names (“City of the God of Monkeys” and “La Ciudad Blanca” (“White City”)) turned out to be true. The expedition found in the depths of the tropical forests of Honduras, where , the lost city. And, interestingly, they found it by chance - while researching the terrain from the air using laser technology LIDAR. Among the artifacts found in the “City of the God of the Monkeys” they found a figure depicting the transformation of a person into a jaguar. might s just one of several others that today are not known.
9. Underwater Egyptian city
In 2000, the ancient Egyptian city of Heracleon (the Greeks called him Tonis) was found in the depths of the Mediterranean Sea, 6.5 km from the coast of Egypt in the western part of the Gulf of Abukir. Prior to this discovery, the city was known only by hints in classical texts and several preserved inscriptions. Frank Goddio and his team from the European Institute of Underwater Archeology (IEASM) found this lost underwater city and was able to partially map it.
Scientists believe that a city that was built on clay soil sank under its own weight due to some kind of natural disaster (volcanic eruption, flood, tidal wave, or other catastrophic event). Many artifacts were found on the seabed, including the remains of 64 ships, gold coins, statues 5 meters high, stone slabs with inscriptions in ancient Egyptian and ancient Greek, small limestone sarcophagi, etc.
It would seem like you can lose the spacecraft, but NASA managed it. After two years spent searching for the STEREO-B satellite (one of two satellites that watched the Sun), NASA finally managed to find the missing ship in August 2016. With STEREO-B, the connection should have been absent for three months, while he was circling the far side of the Sun. Anticipating this, NASA specialists equipped the satellite with a fault-tolerant system, in case the contact had not been made within 72 hours. When both satellites came out from behind the Sun, only STEREO-A made the connection, and STEREO-B disappeared. Now it was discovered, but it is not possible to reconnect with it until 2019.
