Canadian mining company Nautilus Minerals has reached an agreement with the government of Papua New Guinea to begin mining an area of seabed believed to be rich in gold and copper ores, according to the BBC. Under the terms of the agreement, Papua New Guinea will contribute $120 million to the operation and receive a 15 percent share in the mine. Environmentalists say the mine will devastate the area and cause long-lasting damage to the environment. The BBC reports that "the mine will target an area of hydrothermal vents where superheated, highly acidic water emerges from the seabed, where it encounters far colder and more alkaline seawater, forcing it to deposit high concentrations of minerals." The report continues: The result is that the seabed is formed of ores that are far richer in gold and copper than ores found on land. Mike Johnston, chief executive of Nautilus Minerals told the BBC "that a temperature probe left in place for 18 months was found to have 'high grade copper all over it'." Nautilus announced in April that it had completed its bulk cutter, the first component of its Seafloor Production Tools system, which will be used to mine the seabed. Nautilus also approximately 500,000 square kilometres of "highly prospective exploration acreage" in Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Fiji, Vanuatu and Tonga, as well as in international waters in the eastern Pacific, the company said in a press release. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Next Animation Studio’s News Direct service provides daily, high-quality, informative 3D news animations that fill in for missing footage and help viewers understand breaking news stories or in-depth features on science, technology, and health.

Follow us: Website: http://inhabitants-tv.org/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/inhabitantstv/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCt0fB6C18nwzRwdudiC8sGg What is Deep Sea Mining? is a five episode webseries dedicated to the topic of deep sea mining, a new frontier of resource extraction at the bottom of the ocean, set to begin in the next few years. Deep sea mining will occur mainly in areas rich in polymetallic nodules, in seamounts, and in hydrothermal vents. Mining companies are already leasing areas in national and international waters in order to extract minerals and metals such as manganese, cobalt, gold, copper, iron, and other rare earth elements from the seabed. Main sites targeted for future exploration are the mid-atlantic ridge and the Clarion Clipperton Zone (Pacific ocean) in international waters, as well as the islands of Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand, Japan, and the Portuguese Azores archipelago. Yet, potential impacts on deep sea ecosystems are yet to be assessed by the scientific community, and local communities are not being consulted. The prospects of this new, experimental form of mining are re-actualizing a colonial, frontier mentality and redefining extractivist economies for the twenty-first century. This webseries addresses different issues related to this process, from resource politics to ocean governance by international bodies, prompting today’s shift towards a "blue economy" but also efforts to defend sustained ocean literacy when the deep ocean, its species, and resources remain largely unmapped and unstudied. Episode 1: Tools for Ocean Literacy is a cartographical survey of technologies that have contributed to ocean literacy and seabed mapping. Structured around a single shot along a vertical axis, the episode inquires about deep sea mining and the types of geologic formations where it is set to occur, particularly hydrothermal vents. Understanding the process of deep sea mining demands not only a temporal investigation – its main dates, legal, and corporate landmarks, and scientific breakthroughs – but also a spatial axis connecting the seafloor to outer space cartographic technologies. After all, we know less about the ocean depths than about the universe beyond this blue planet. What is Deep Sea Mining? is developed in collaboration with Margarida Mendes, curator and activist from Lisbon, Portugal, and founding member of Oceano Livre environmental movement against deep sea mining. It was commissioned and funded by TBA21 - Academy and premiered at the 2018 New Museum Triennial: Songs for Sabotage.

South Africa's TauTona mine, real life alchemy, and Halicephalobus Mephisto. Footage from the 2012 documentary, "Down to the Earth's Core". We have travelled into space and looked deep into the universe's depths, but the world beneath our feet remains unexplored and unseen. Now, that's about to change. For the first time in one epic unbroken shot, we embark on an impossible mission - using spectacular computer generated imagery to smash through three thousand miles of solid rock, and venture from our world into the underworld and on to the core of the Earth itself. It's a journey fraught with danger. One thousand feet down we find ourselves inside one of the planet's most volatile places - the San Andreas Fault. Caught between two huge rock slabs, we watch as stress builds and then releases. It unleashes an earthquake and blasts us on towards rivers of molten rock, explosive volcanoes, tears in the Earth's crust and giant tornadoes of liquid metal. But for every danger, there are wonders beyond imagination. Four hundred feet below the surface, a three hundred million year old fossilized forest, with every leaf and every piece of bark perfectly preserved. At one thousand feet down we enter a cave of giant crystals, glistening in deadly 122 degree heat. More than two miles underground we find buried treasure - gold and gems. Deeper still there are valuable resources - salt, oil, coal and iron. And over one hundred miles down we see the sparkling beauty of diamonds. As we descend we piece together our planet's extraordinary story. We rewind time to discover how prehistoric forests became modern-day fuel. 1700 feet down a layer of rock reveals the extraordinary story of the dinosaurs' cataclysmic death. We watch stalactites form and gold grow before our eyes. The deeper we travel into the underworld the more we understand our world above the surface. A bigger picture takes shape - a cycle of destruction and creation, driven by the core that sustains our dynamic planet and makes the Earth the only planet with life in a seemingly lifeless universe. Until, finally, three thousand miles down, we reach the core. Inside it lie the secrets of life as we know it - the magnetic force field that protects life on Earth from the sun's deadly rays, the ancient heat source that keeps our planet alive. Down to the Earth's Core brings the latest science together with breathtaking computer generated imagery. The result is an unmissable journey into an extraordinary world - full of dangers, wonders and secrets. And it's all down there, beneath our feet, right now waiting to be discovered.

Biggest Oil Platform Rigs in the World as of 2017 As oceans swell around them, some of the world's tallest manmade structures live in water, not on land. There's not a whole lot of variety when it comes to this manmade mammoths of the sea. Most of theses mega-builds draw oil from the depths, the only purpose as yet discovered that's lucrative enough to pay for their out-sized cost and complicated engineering. One more thing they have in common is that they all can wow with impressive size. We look at seven of the most intense and impressive offshore structures across the globe. [for text and creatives, http://loloha.com/biggest-oil-platform-rigs-in-the-world-as-of-2017/] Berkut While the Berkut oil platform toils in near anonymity in Russia's Far East, it does so with a heft unlike any other rig. At 200000 tons, the Bekut holds the record for the biggest in the world, above water. It can work under its own power down to minus-47 degrees Fahrenheit, withstand chunks of floating ice up to six feet thick and shake off waves up to 60 feet high. Stones While Berkut may prove the heftiest above the water, Stones, opened in September 2016 and operated by Shell, goes the deepest of any offshore structure, reaching a staggering 9,500 feet underwater. Located in the Gulf of Mexico, the Stones above-water structure—significantly more boat-like than your average oil rig—was built in Singapore before making the cross-ocean trip to its current location. There, it ties to two wells, with plans to expand to six over time. Stones uses a flexible "steel lazy wave riser" to carry oil and gas to the top, with the bend in the piping absorbing the motion of the structure. Perdido Until Stones opened just months ago, Perdido—also located in the Gulf of Mexico and operated by Shell—was the deepest of all the offshore structures, dropping its roots a dizzying 8000 feet (one and a half miles) underwater. Built in Finland before making its trek to about 200 miles south of Galveston, Texas, the main structure—which sits mostly underwater—stretches about 875 feet, about the same height as the Eiffel Tower. Olympus, or Mars B Weighing 120000 tons—more than 300 Boeing 747 jets—the 2014 built Olympus Mars B development in the Gulf of Mexico sits in 3,100 feet of water. From the base of the hull to the top of the derrick, Olympus is 406 feet tall and has a combined deck area of 342000 square feet, taller and with more floor area than the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Troll A The 1,548 foot tall Troll A platform off the west coast of Norway includes 1,210 feet of structure below the water's surface. Along with impressive height, when the platform moved over land into the North Sea in 1996 in a seven-day process, it became the largest object to ever be moved by man across the earth. Petronius If you're looking for tall oil rigs, look no further than the Gulf of Mexico where you'll find the Chevron-operated Petronius. The platform's piled tower design gives the whole structure a height of 2001 feet, but with only 246 feet visible above water. The 43000 ton structure hovers above the seabed which lays 1754 feet below, and the underwater structure can sway in excess of two percent of its height. Hibernia The world's first iceberg-resistant gravity-based structure, the Hibernia platform includes a 41000 ton topside facility mounted on a 660000 ton gravity base structure, which literally sits on the seabed. The largest offshore platform in Canada, the Hibernia can withstand a six-million-ton iceberg, and has an iceberg management system that works to detect the movements of incoming ice and alter its path away from the structure. Baldplate Located off the coast of Louisiana, Baldplate was the first ever free-standing offshore compliant tower. Designed by Hudson Engineering in Houston, Texas, Baldplate stands in an impressive 1,650 feet of water. Its production peak was reached in 1999. Blue Whale One China’s homemade deep-sea drilling platform. China’s sixth-generation homemade deep-sea semi-submersible drilling platform has successfully completed its deep-sea trial, local media reported, marking a further improvement in China’s capability of manufacturing high-end deep-water drilling rigs. With a length of 104.5 meters, a width of 70.5 meters and a height of 105.8 meters, the platform is able to operate in water depths up to 1500 meters and drill as deep as 9144 meters. It is so far the world’s most advanced drilling platform.

Research on seabed exploitation and seabed mining is a complex transdisciplinary field that demands for further attention and development. Since the field links engineering, economics, environmental, legal and supply chain research, it demands for research from a systems point of view. This implies the application of a holistic sustainability framework of to analyse the feasibility of engineering systems. The research at hand aims to close this gap by developing such a framework and providing a review of seabed resources. Based on this review it identifies a significant potential for massive sulphides in inactive hydrothermal vents and sediments to solve global resource scarcities. The research aims to provide background on seabed exploitation and to apply a holistic systems engineering approach to develop general guidelines for sustainable seabed mining of polymetallic sulphides and a new concept and solutions for the Atlantis II Deep deposit in the Red Sea. The research methodology adpted will start with acquiring a broader academic and industrial view on sustainable seabed mining through online survey and expert interviews on seabed mining. The experts are chosen according to their knowledge in one or more of the dimensions of seabed mining introduced in the research framework. The Nautilus Minerals case is also reviewd for lessons learned for seabed mining and the presented concept in particular with identification of challaenges and issues. Therafter, a new concept and site specific assessment for Atlantis II Deep is developed. The research undertaken in this study provides a new perspective regarding the sustainable seabed mining. The main contributions of this research are the development of extensive guidelines for key issues in sustainable seabed mining as well as a new concept for seabed mining involving engineering systems, environmental impact, economical benefits, logistics chain supply and legal aspects.

Episode 2: Deep Frontiers is a brief history about knowledge of the deep sea and its resources. It highlights the ambiguity of this history, as depictions of the deep changed throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Today, this knowledge informs discussions about the commercialization of biological and geological resources, with the deep sea fast becoming a zone of international dispute, opening up a debate about sustainable practices at sea. What is Deep Sea Mining? is a five episode web series dedicated to the topic of deep sea mining, a new frontier of resource extraction at the bottom of the ocean, set to begin in the next few years. Deep sea mining will occur mainly in areas rich in polymetallic nodules, in seamounts, and in hydrothermal vents. Mining companies are already leasing areas in national and international waters in order to extract minerals and metals such as manganese, cobalt, gold, copper, iron, and other rare earth elements from the seabed. Main sites targeted for future exploration are the mid-atlantic ridge and the Clarion Clipperton Zone (Pacific ocean) in international waters, as well as the islands of Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Tonga, New Zealand, Japan, and the Portuguese Azores archipelago. Yet, potential impacts on deep sea ecosystems are yet to be assessed by the scientific community, and local communities are not being consulted. The prospects of this new, experimental form of mining are re-actualizing a colonial, frontier mentality and redefining extractivist economies for the twenty-first century.

The video shows the method statement for the construction of large diameter shafts for the passage of gas pipelines, even though blind shafts are usually used in the mining industry. In this particular project pipelines were installed vertically and had a depth of 600 meters and were 2m in diameter. A pendular rig with the usage of reverse circulation drilling and water as the drilling fluid were utilized to accomplish the excavation of the shafts. This is a totally mechanized process which eliminates the need of humans entering the shaft during its construction thus removing any safety hazard associated with this activity. www.brasfond.com For more information please contact [email protected] or +1 (330) 262 0015.

In this episode of Upgrade, Motherboard goes to Baja California, Mexico to get a firsthand look at these free floating pods, and to get an understanding for why we need better ways to cultivate our future food sources. Whether it’s found on a plate of sushi, grilled in our backyard, or thrown on pasta, seafood is a staple for many diets around the world, and demand is growing. And as the commercial seafood industry booms, fish stocks worldwide face perilous declines. We’ve surpassed our capacity to sustainably fish wild caught fish, shrimp, and mollusks from the ocean, and so we’ve turned to aquaculture, or fish farming, as a strategy to meet demand for our growing appetites for water-borne critters. The aquaculture industry is growing fast. According to the FAO, per capita production of seafood from aquaculture has increased 6.9 percent annually since 1970. Unfortunately for us and for our Earth, current methods of fish farming often involve crowded, tethered pens, which can have poor water circulation and contribute to the spread of disease, and put large amounts of environmental stress on the surrounding waterways. This is where Steve Page of Ocean Farm Technologies comes in. Taking inspiration from naturally-occurring schools of fish and Buckminster Fuller’s geodesic domes, Page co-designed the Aquapod, a free floating, untethered deep ocean fish habitat which reduces overcrowding, and creates less stress on surrounding environments due to its unique ability to change location with the ocean's current.

Located on the island of Lanzarote, Salinas de Janubio was constructed in 1895 to produce salt for consumption and to meet demands of the region's once robust fishing industry, which utilized the high quality, natural salts for fish preservation. Today, artisanal salt production on the Canary Islands is in decline, but workers at Janubio continue to use traditional methods to extract salt from the sea, and hope to maintain the salt flats for future generations.

Energy resources have been a very important contribution in the development of human civilization. the changing times, uses of energy also change. now we use petroleum energy, coal power, gas energy, solar energy and electricity. But do you know how the stores of gas and petroleum energy are used, which we use most. And why are they deeper than water in the ground floor? How is petroleum and gas formed and how long does it take? how to find the oil and gas under the sea and the ground? And why are they found in deep depth in the land? How you made? And how long does it take? also know which places where oil and gas are found in India? it is very expensive to find oil and gas, so it is very important for the searchers to find out where the oil and gas are present. how the oil and gas formed inside the earth or how? crude oil and natural gas is formed in millions of years by the destruction of vegetation and marine life and chemical processes inside the Earth. why oil and gas are also lower than water? oil and gas are found in Arab countries such as Iraq and Iran. because there is no water in the ground. Whereas in a country like India, due to high levels of water, oil and gas are found in deep depth. how to find oil and gas under ground or under sea water? The data that is received after this is analyzed with the help of a super computer by the geologist. Which shows how much gas and oil reserves are available on any exploration site. After this, crude oil and gas mines / wells are dug at that place. In India, the work of data analysis is sent to a lab located in Hyderabad. There it is decided that there is no oil and gas and if so how much quantity? And in the same year, the government has approved to explore the reserves of oil and gas in the Siwan district of Bihar. is called "Seismic Exploration". With the help of this technology, the beginning of finding oil and gas started after 1859. Seismic waves are left in the water to help find oil and gas in the water. rock, oil and gas and hit back with the seismometer / hydrophones in the ship. This data is collected and here the geological analyzes of this data with the help of supercomputer. After which they find out the amount of gas and oil reserves present in the amount. The process of extracting oil and gas is started at the same place. How long does it take to search for oil and gas? entire process takes about a year. You will be impressed by knowing that with the help of this technology, bats search for their prey, and by this technique, the doctor gathers information about the health of the child born in the womb. If the geologist's estimation of some place goes wrong, then the refining company may have to suffer a loss of millions of rupees. Now we will know the history of oil and gas in India. oil was extracted from Assam alone, but after that excavation of mineral oil was started in Gujarat and Bombay High. Oil and gas are found below the ground and under the water of the sea, which we talked about, today 26 such basins have been traced in India, from which there is adequate possibilities of getting oil and gas. Gujarat: In the state of Gujarat, Khambhat and Ankleshwar are important areas, whereas the oil sector is expanding at places like Navangaon, Kosamba, Sunnd river valley, Kadi, Olpad, Hardana, Dholka, Mihasana and Kallol. Oil was excavated in 1958 for the first time in the Khambhat oil field. Oil has been detected in Eliabet Island, 45 km away from Bhavnagar in Saurashtra. According to the Oil and Natural Gas Commission, Gujarat has 500 million tonnes of oil reserves. Maharashtra: Bombay High area is spreading about 2,000 sq km away from the coast of Maharashtra, which is also an important oil field, from which oil is being received since 1976. Currently, mineral oil is being excavated from Godavari river valley area. It is estimated that 1250 million tonnes of oil reserves are available here. Assam valley: Assam Valley is India's most important and ancient oil field. Here the first year was discovered in 1837 by an officer in the oil. Here, about 800 oil wells have been digested in Digboi, the major oil fields of the region, in which Bappa Pang, Piatola, Haspapang etc. are very important. Apart from this, oil is also extracted in Badharpur and Patharia in the valley of Naharkitia, Hargiyan-Moran and Surma river. In total, total 500 million tonnes of oil reserves are estimated to be in Assam. The Sunderban region of West Bengal, Kisanganj and Raxaul areas in Bihar, Jaisalmer, Bikaner and Barmer districts in Rajasthan, the area of the Kaveri river valley and the Bay of Gulf and the Andaman Nicobar islands. The first mineral oil refinery in India was established in 1901 in Digboi, which used only 5 percent of the total demand of India till independence. But at present, the total number of refineries of mineral oil is 14, which yields only 17% of India's total demand.

=== Abstract === Deep-sea mining is the process of retrieving mineral deposits from the deep seabed, the area of the seabed below 200m. Whilst there has been interest in the deep seabed since the 1970s, there has been growing interest in recent years due to the depleting deposits from terrestrial sources of metals such as manganese, coupled with the increasing demand for the same metals in green technologies such as wind turbines. Each resource type will have specific challenges, solutions, technologies and mining techniques. In essence, all will require seafloor vehicles to crush and collect the material which will then be fed to the support vessel. However, as the deep sea remains understudied and poorly understood, there are many gaps in our understanding of its biodiversity and ecosystems. This makes it difficult to thoroughly assess the potential impacts of deep-sea mining and to put in place adequate safeguards to protect the marine environment. As there are likely to be impacts beyond our current knowledge, the International Seabed Authority (ISA) is operating a dual mandate of promoting the development of deep-sea minerals whilst ensuring that this development is not harmful to the environment. As such, they are currently going through the process of consultation with the international community (government representatives, scientific community, private contractors etc.) to ensure that the marine life is adequately protected. This presentation will discuss why deep seabed mining is gaining traction and review the governance to date looking at what is already in place and where the gaps are. === Speaker: David Carlin, Ocean Governance SIG - https://www.imarest.org/special-interest-groups/ocean-governance === David is the Science Director at CEFAS, and has worked primarily on science, evidence and advice in support of the regulation of activities in the marine environment.

The focus will be on technologies for deep-sea mining, underwater vehicles, underwater robotics and ocean climate change advisory services, among other aspects. Ministry of Earth Sciences, Government of India is all set to launch ‘Deep Ocean Mission’ by January 2018. This will improve India’s position in ocean research field. Shri M Rajeevan, Secretary, Ministry of Earth Sciences announced. Secretary was speaking through video conference in the workshop arranged by National Institute of Oceanography, Dona Paula. Shri M S Nagar, Member Standing Committee, Ministry of Earth Science, Dr VSN Murthy, Director, National Institute of Oceanography were also present at the inauguration of the workshop on ‘Three decades of India acquiring Pioneer Investor Status- Achievements and way forward’. India achieved a lot in the field of ocean research; still it is long way to go, said Secretary M Rajeevan on this occasion. The program on Poly metallic nodules was initiated at CSIR-NIO with the collection of the first nodule sample from Arabian Sea on board the first Research Vessel Gaveshani on 26 January 1981. India was the first country in the world to have been given the Pioneer Area for exploration of deep-sea mineral viz. Polymetallic nodules in the Central Indian Ocean Basin in 1987. This was based on the extensive surveys carried out by the scientists of CSIR-NIO, on several research ships leading to the allocation of an area of 150,000 sq km to the country with exclusive rights under the UN Law of the sea. Subsequently, Environment Impact Assessment studies for nodule mining by CSIR-NIO, development of metal extraction process by CSIR-National Metallurgical Laboratory, Jamshedpur and CSIR- Institute for Minerals and Metals Technology, Bhubaneswar and development of mining technology by National Institute of Ocean Technology, Chennai, have been taken up under the national program on Polymetallic nodules funded by Ministry of Earth Sciences. Based on the resource evaluation, India has now retained an area of 75,000 sq km with an estimated resource of about 100 million tons of strategic metals such Copper,Nickel, Cobalt besides Manganese and Iron. A First Generation Mine-site (FGM) with an area of 18,000 sq km has been identified. Latest technologies for extraction of metals from the minerals have also been developed under the programme. Detailed environmental data has been collected for compliance with International Seabed Authorities requirements. Besides identifying the mineral resource and developing technologies for mining and extraction, the programme has also resulted in high impact research as well as manpower development.

National Geographic Megastructures - the World s Deepest Gold Mine | BBC Documentary History ⏩⏩⏩ SUBSCRIBE to : https://goo.gl/89mjhF National Geographic Megastructures Megastructures is a documentary television series appearing on the National Geographic Channel in the United States and the United Kingdom, Channel 5 in the United Kingdom, France 5 in France, and 7mate in Australia. Each episode is an educational look of varying depth into the construction, operation, and staffing of various structures or construction projects, but not ordinary construction products. Generally containing interviews with designers and project managers, it presents the problems of construction and the methodology or techniques used to overcome obstacles. In some cases (such as the Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge and Petronas Towers) this involved the development of new materials or products that are now in general use within the construction industry. Megastructures focuses on constructions that are extreme; in the sense that they are the biggest, tallest, longest, or deepest in the world. Alternatively, a project may appear if it had an element of novelty or are a world first (such as Dubai's Palm Islands). This type of project is known as a megaproject. The series follows similar subjects as the History Channel's Modern Marvels and Discovery Channel's Extreme Engineering, covering areas of architecture, transport, construction and manufacturing. National Geographic (formerly National Geographic Channel and also commercially abbreviated and trademarked as Nat Geo) is the American digital cable and satellite television channel that is owned by National Geographic Partners, majority-owned by 21st Century Fox with the remainder owned by the National Geographic Society.

China's first domestically-made 60-meter submersible deep-sea driller completed its first trial run in the South China Sea on Sunday and returned to east China's Fujian Province. The "Sea Bull," which the scientists call the machine, drilled 60 meters into the seabed under 3,000 meters of water to collect samples. Its successful return means that China has become the fourth country in the world to have the technology. The six-meter tall Sea Bull weighs eight ton and has a circumference of 10 meters. It has gone through rigorous compression tests to see if it can withstand water presssure at more than 3,000 meters. Each small area amounts to the size of a finger nail and should withstand 300 kilograms of pressure, about the total weight of four adults. "In the high pressure chamber of our lab, all these items will go through a test of 50 Mpa. Then they can withstand water pressure under 5,000 meters," said Luo Bowen, associate professor of Marine Resources Exploring Equipment Laboratory at Hunan University of Science and Technology. The Sea Bull has 24 drill rods as its weapons, each measuring 2.5 meters long. All the 24 drill rods are arranged like bullets of a revolving pistol on a turn plate. When the plate turns around, different rods can be pushed to a manipulator for drilling tasks. "Other drilling rigs can only twist their drilling rods for a half-circle at a time and then stop, and twist another half-circle. Ours can spin without stopping. So the Sea Bull can fasten drill rods quickly," said Wan Buyan, chief expert of Sea Bull project. The drill rods are designed for different rocks on the seabed as some are hard while others softer. "We have designed three kinds of drill rods. One is for hard rocks, the other for soft rocks mainly consisting of sediments. The last one is for drilling without taking any samples," said Huang Xiaojun, professor of Marine Resources Exploring Equipment Laboratory of Hunan University of Science and Technology. It took the Sea Bull 10 hours to drill 60 meters into the seabed to collect samples. "The successful experiment means that we have independently collect samples in deep water. This technological application will significantly promote our technologies in deep sea marine geological science and geotechnical engineering," said Zhou Yangrui, leader of inspection team of Sea Bull project.

Mysterious facts about the ocean & strange things found underwater! These are unexplained mysteries of the deep sea. Support our Patreon today: https://www.patreon.com/theywillkillyou Subscribe for new videos: http://goo.gl/SaufF4 Follow us on Instagram: @theywillkillyou Voiceover by Carl Mason: [email protected] 8 Underwater Crop Circles Discovered in 1995 off the coast of Japan, these strange geometric formations remained a mystery for almost a decade. their eerie resemblance to the crop circles discovered on land invited speculation on what may have caused them, and, for many, the immediate suspects were extraterrestrials or ancient underwater beings. The answer to the mystery would eventually be slightly underwhelming. The five-inch culprit was caught in the act in 2011. It was a male pufferfish. This creature would dig ridges in the sand using its fins while repeatedly moving in and out of the circle. 7 Bermeja Island The Island of Bermeja was located around 60 miles from the Yucatan Peninsula. That is, if it did really exist. The unusual thing about the island is its tendency to vanish and reappear on maps and historical records. On maps produced between 1535 and 1775, the existence of the mysterious island was confirmed. After an expedition in search of the Island yielded no result, it vanished from geographical and historical records only to resurface on a US map in 1857. 6 Gold The water of the world’s oceans contains almost 20 million tons of gold but the concentration is extremely dilute. The undissolved gold lies in and on the seafloor. There currently isn’t a cost-effective method of mining and extracting the gold from the ocean. Nevertheless, should that change it’s been estimated that the amount of gold extracted would be so massive that it could provide each person on the planet with 9 pounds in weight. 5 Baltic Sea Anomaly In the summer of 2011, members of the Swedish ‘Ocean X’ diving team were looking for a shipwreck in the Baltic Sea when their sonar picked up an intriguing image. According to the team, the image revealed a 200-foot circular object with features not resembling anything produced by nature, around 260 to 300 feet below. They returned to the site the following year but claimed that as soon as they were above the object, 'mysterious electrical interference’ tampered with their equipment, preventing them from getting a clearer image. Their equipment became operational only once they moved several hundred feet away from the anomaly, they said. As soon as the image went public, there were claims that it could possibly represent an UFO. 4 Bermuda Triangle The Bermuda Triangle has been described as a portion of the North Atlantic Ocean bordered by Miami, Bermuda and Puerto Rico. However, this is a loose interpretation as other borders have also been suggested, effectively increasing its surface. It’s often cited among the ocean’s greatest mysteries. Each incident has a number of theories including weather, strong currents, human error, even sinkholes. 3 Sea Peoples It’s a widely held notion that they were responsible for the Late Bronze Age Collapse. Yet, for all the destruction they brought to the ancient world, nobody seems to know anything about who they were and where they came from. There are multiple theories but, in truth, to most, their culture and nationality remains a mystery. All that’s known about the Sea Peoples mainly comes from civilizations. The most detailed account comes from the time of Ramses III around 1170 BC. An inscription on his mortuary temple describes how the Sea Peoples moved south through the eastern Mediterranean and laid waste to cities in Cyprus, Syria, Turkey and the Levant. 2 Hidden Treasures No mystery would be complete without the search for secret treasure. Some estimates claim there’s more historical artifacts lying in the ocean than in all of the world’s museums combined. According to James Delgado, director of Maritime Heritage Program for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration the total number of shipwrecks since the dawn of history is well over one million and the vast majority are yet to be discovered. The ocean holds many secrets regarding the planet’s origins and human history. Finding shipwrecks and sunken artifacts may provide a key towards unlocking these mysteries. 1 Mauritius Underwater Waterfall Around 8 million years ago, gigantic underwater volcanic eruptions led to the formation of the Mascarene Islands, around 1,200 miles off the southeast coast of Africa. Mauritius is one of these islands and it is well known for its reefs, lagoons and beaches. Aside from its abundance of natural beauty Mauritius is also known for a remarkable natural phenomenon. From an aerial view you can see what looks like an underwater waterfall near the southern tip of the island. It’s a stunning site to behold but the entire phenomenon is actually an optical illusion.
