The Bog People
The Bog Mummies, who are more commonly referred to as the bog people, are the naturally preserved human corpses that were found in the sphagnum bogs in Northern Europe. The bog people have retained their skin and internal organs due to the highly acidic water, low temperature, and a lack of oxygen in their surrounding area.
It is believed that the majority of the 1,850 bog people found, are from the Iron Age. Many of them have been killed in similar manners and disposed of in the same area, indicating a ritualistic killing.Â Why were they murdered and placed in the bogs? No one knows for sure, but scientists continue to be fascinated by the bog people.
The Dancing Plague of 1518
In July 1518, a woman named Frau Troffea turned onto a narrow street and began dancing. Involuntary dance fever that gripped her for days. Her creepy moves were somehow contagious, and about 400 people were infected with the so-called “dancing plague” over the next month. Many of them died of exhaustion, heart attacks, or strokes, and we HAVE NO IDEA WHY.
The Taos Hum
The Taos hum is a low-pitched sound that can be heard in various parts of the world. It is described as sounding like the humming of a refrigerator. It is known to drive some people mad, while others donâ€™t hear a thing. The mysterious sound is also undetectable by microphones or any other electronic equipment, making it extremely hard to pinpoint the source. In 1997, the United States Congress asked scientists and observers to find the source of the sound, but they were unable to do so. Some say the sound has to do with the thin earth crust in Taos, while others are convinced it has to do with an alien UFO that crashed eons ago and is now buried deep underground.Â
Mary Celeste Ghost Ship
The story of the Mary Celeste ghost ship is a mystery that may never be solved. In 1872, it was found floating, without its crew, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. The mystery of the Mary Celeste has baffled people for over 125 years and has become one of the great unsolved mysteries of maritime history. The fate of the crew and passengers has never been satisfactorily explained.
Many crystal skulls have turned up at auction over the years, and they’ve long been rumored to have originated in Maya and Inca civilizations. People have some seriously whacked out attachments to them and their supposed ominous powers. However, the science says these guys were produced in the 18th Century, and science is a pretty convincing talker. The truth is that we have no clue who made them, even if they are a hoax.
The Bermuda Triangle
The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devilâ€™s Traingle, Â is a large part of ocean in the North Atlantic that has been the source of many plain- and boat disappearances. A number of explanations have been suggested over the years ranging from; time warps, extreme weather to alien abductions.
Jack the Ripper
Jack the Ripper is possibly the best-known unidentified serial killer of all time. He brutally murdered between four and nine prostitutes in an impoverished area of London over a four-month period in 1888.Â London police received hundreds of letters about the case, ranging from concerned citizens to people claiming to be the murderer himself. It remains a mystery if any of these letters were actually sent by the killer himself or simply an attention seeker.
On August 15, 1977, a SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) worker named Jerry Ehman detected a strong narrowband radio signal from somewhere in the constellation Sagittarius. It was completely unlike any natural phenomenon ever observed by cosmologists at the time or since, and is widely speculated to have been an artificial transmission from an alien civilization. The E.T. hypothesis is supported by the sharp, clean frequency of the signal, and the fact that it was 1420 MHz. That’s right on the hydrogen line, a universal standard so distinct that even we figured out it should be reserved for radio astronomy. Unfortunately, nothing like it has ever been detected since, so the mystery of the aptly named Wow! Signal remains unsolved for now.
