MessageToEagle.com - Discover an amazing underwater world you never thought existed!
Our oceans are full of secrets. Buried beneath the deep waters lie ruins of fascinating and marvelous long forgotten ancient kingdoms.
Underwater explorers have also discovered mysterious objects of unknown origin, entire rivers and jungles, and even huge canyons.
Now let us remember that the ocean covers 71 percent of the Earth's surface and contains 97 percent of the planet's water, yet more than 95 percent of the underwater
world remains unexplored. One cannot help wondering what else is hiding deep beneath the unknown waters.
We have put together a list of some of the most remarkable and interesting underwater discoveries that captured our attention.
In ancient times, the city of Thonis-Heracleion, known in modern tiles as the
lost kingdom of Cleopatra served as a gateway to Egypt.
Today, this mysterious legendary city is submerged in Egypt's Aboukir Bay,
Why the city sank remains a mystery, but it was swallowed by the Mediterranean Sea and has been buried in sand and mud for more than 1,200 years.
New amazing underwater discoveries allow archeologists to piece together clues and to create an image of what life was like in the ancient city.
During the second expedition, something very strange happened when the divers approached the mysterious object.
What exactly is it that the Ocean Explorer team has discovered at the bottom of the sea?
When the Ocean X Team returned from their first expedition, the divers knew that they had come across
something strange, but no-one could determine the nature of the object and there were a number of speculations.
Rivers under the sea can really exist! The ocean has many secrets, and underwater rivers are one them.
Scientists have discovered a massive underwater river flowing along the bottom of the Black Sea. This amazing undersea river is complete with trees and
leaves flowing on the sea bed, and even waterfalls!
It is estimated that if on land, the undersea river would be the world's sixth largest in terms of the volume of water flowing through it. It is about
350 times greater than the River Thames and 10 times greater than Europe's biggest river, the Rhine.
At Lokiís Castle in the Arctic Ocean, researchers from the University of Bergen (UiB), Norway have discovered a
so far unknown world of volcanic activity underwater.
These discoveries are incredibly interesting as they represent a part of the Norwegian nature that is under-explored. They represent
a part of nature where conditions are extreme and where we expect to find a lot of new and exciting biology,Ē UiB spokesman Dag Rune Olsen said.
These ancient underwater remains serve as a reminder of how vulnerable we are and how fast Mother Nature can end our existence.
To date, it is estimated that we have explored only 3 to 5 percent of the ocean floor. With so much territory still left to explore,
we can only imagine the discoveries yet to come! Here are just a few examples of remarkable ancient underwater discoveries.
Nearby Star Fomalhaut Is More Intriguing Than Thought
Fomalhaut is one of the most interesting and well-studied nearby stars, hosting at least one planet, a spectacular debris ring
