The fascinating ocean, one of the most mysterious things on our planet, is yet to be discovered. Doesn’t it creep you out that we only explored a total of 5% of the earth’s most covered area? Sure there is a lot of crazy stuff going on down there that we have no idea about, and we don’t really know what weird creatures we might find there but here are some of the strangest things that were ever discovered in the depths of the mighty ocean. Be amazed at what nature is capable of!

The ancient computer

Yes, you read it right. Seems that this computer was formed way before Apple and Microsoft took the lead in the market. It was discovered somewhere between the 1900s and it is called the Antikythera mechanism while being found on the ship with the same name on a Greek island. It was used for predicting astronomical positions and eclipses and this kind of technology wasn’t used until the 14th century. You can find it at the National Archaeological Museum of Athens.

Lake Michigan Stone Hedge

This is definitely one of the weirdest things found in the ocean. These stones arranged in the perfect shape as the ones found in England have yet to be discussed by us. No one really knows why they are here, and how far they go back in history and obviously no one really knows how they formed. But pictures show clearly that they aren’t very different from the strange stones found around the world.

The city of Alexandria

Known to be as one of the most beautiful cities of its time, ruled by Pharaoh Cleopatra was disappeared under the sea due to natural catastrophes. The city that was hidden for almost 1600 years was discovered in 1998 and people are working to turn it into an underwater museum which will definitely blow our minds in the near future! Would you like to pay a visit to it? I would!

 

Government meeting underwater

This really made us speechless. There was actually a government meeting held in the depths of the ocean from the President of Maldives, Mohamed Nasheed. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the climate changes and its effect on the ocean, and the citizen’s awareness to keep the oceans clean. Whatever the case, this is actually pretty amazing!

Sea Monsters and other animals

Despite all the antique relics, and cities found underwater there are obviously a lot of weird animals that can be found and are yet to be discovered in there. After all, we only explored like 5% of the whole ocean. Who knows what else is hiding in there? There is a weird kind of bird that hunts its prey and follows it into the water. And with the advancement of technology and sending cameras under there, a lot of sea monsters were discovered, like the blobfish that looks really weird and can be only seen when caught by fishnets.
