mystery of lost city atlantis

The story of a lost city under the sea, the city of Atlantis appears in books, films and television shows. People were fascinated by the existence of the city, who claimed to be a home of a very advanced civilization. But if there was such a city was submerged in the sea or not is still a mystery. The story of the city of Atlantis is first mentioned in the writings of the Greek philosopher Plato.

As for the writings of Plato, there was a city of the region, what we know today as the Strait of Gibraltar. Founded by the sea god, Poseidon ruled in March for his heirs. The city is described in the design and architectural marvel. When people live in peace according to the established laws Poseidon, the city of Atlantis was one night, went through thick smoke, which was the result of a volcano spits that existed on the island. When the volcanic lava make their way to the sea was a huge tsunami of up to 200 meters, and took the island, the sea would never be seen or heard of again.

Whether the story mentioned is true or just a fable from Plato is yet to be found out. However scientists have found that the area mentioned as Atlantis still holds the ash deposits of the volcano that erupted thousands of years ago. These deposits lie some 60 meters deep on the island which is now called Kalliste by the Greeks. A connection to the story by Plato and Kalliste is being sought to adjudge whether the story of the Lost City of Atlantis is for real or is just a myth handed down over generations. As there are no other theories to authenticate the fact, research are still going and the mystery still stays.

In Kyoto suburbs creep around a grassy jordhøj crowned by a memorial stone, beneath which are buried tens of thousands of noses and ears cut off, the ghastly trophies in brutal war of the 16th century.

Led by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the Japanese invasions of Korea from 1592 to 1598 was one of the unsuccessful efforts to control Hideyoshi all East Asia. Previously, the tradition was to take the severed heads of enemies killed as souvenirs, but the distance and mounting that Bodycount impracticable. Instead, the soldiers took the ears - and later and more - the nose of those they had killed in battle. These had been marinated in brine and sent to be inspected and then buried in Mimizuka, literally translated "Mound of the ears," although it is better known as the grave in front of at least 38,000 Koreans.
The Japanese soldiers were also known to kill and indiscriminately mutilate peasants, including women, children, and the elderly, to obtain more body parts to send home for rewards. Some of these victims were allowed to live, and for years after in southern Korea noseless people were a common sight. Disputing counts have between 100,000 and 200,000 noses being brought back from Korea to Japan.
Mimizuka, a symbol of the cruelty of war, is in front of what was the Great Buddha Hall at Høkøji Temple and is now the Hokoku Shrine, honoring Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the leader of the brutality. Although a frequent stop for Korean tourists, Mimizuka is largely overlooked by the residents of Kyoto.

Mystery El Chupacabra

One of the most frightening creatures of Crypto zoology El Chupacabra is today, first discovered in Mexico in the town of Puerto Rico. They have also been observed in Latin American society, but the originality of the other monsters similar question of their existence remains a mystery. Even if people are afraid of this creature, but it certainly has been said, it does not harm the human race, but only eat goats and cattle. These monsters are said to be the release of goats, as the holes in the neck of goats and cattle and suck their blood. Most researchers consider Chupacabra legendary creatures, but no one knows who may attack livestock in such horror and mutilated that Chupacabra is said to be because they lack the blood of cattle and goats.

It is believed that the chupacabra looks like a kangaroo-like creature, while some say it looks like a gray-green lizard with longitudinal pins in the back.

There are claims observation Chupacabras's strange that people do not see it, but to find a trail of blood behind his cattle. The image of a hundred cattle were spread with the blood is an ugly and horrible spectacle, but the truth remains a mystery. People began to fear the Chupacabras, when the lack of blood was accompanied by the mutilation of dead animals found.

Although some of the people themselves have developed blurred vision, and videos of El Chupacabra, but are they for real or is faked video is a mystery in itself, because there are many people trying to semblance to those videos just for fame and wealth.

El Chupacabras is a real mystery, which should be revealed there are no convincing data about its originality.

The descriptions of this animal is very variable in the reports of eyewitnesses. It is most often described as reptiles, such as skin or feathers with large spikes on the back and head. It is often said to have large eyes, oval, black or red.

Marafa Depression, also known as Hell's Kitchen is a strange sandstone canyon outside of Malindi, Kenya. From local Nyari - "the place broken by itself" - was once worn by a large ridge of sandstone of the wind, rain and floods in several rugged canyons. Layer-cake sandstone color to reveal the white, pink, orange, purple and deep canyons that is particularly attractive at sunset, when the shade of fluted sandstone gorges and the emphasis is reflected in the sun.

The Marafa depression, also known as Hell's Kitchen, is a bizarre sandstone canyon outside of Malindi, Kenya. Known locally as Nyari - "the place broken by itself" - it was once a large sandstone ridge carried by the wind, rain and flooding in a series of wild ravines. The sandstone-colored layer cake reveal white, pink, orange and deep purple, making the gorge especially striking at sunset when the shades of sandstone canyons ribs are highlighted and the mirror of the sun.

March 15, 2006: NASA astronauts are going back to the moon and when they get there they may need quake-proof housing.
That's the surprising conclusion of Clive R. Neal, associate professor of civil engineering and geological sciences at the University of Notre Dame after he and a team of 15 other planetary scientists reexamined Apollo data from the 1970s. "The moon is seismically active," he told a gathering of scientists at NASA's Lunar Exploration Analysis Group (LEAG) meeting in League City, Texas, last October.
Between 1969 and 1972, Apollo astronauts placed seismometers at their landing sites around the moon. The Apollo 12, 14, 15, and 16 instruments faithfully radioed data back to Earth until they were switched off in 1977.

Right: Buzz Aldrin deploys a seismometer in the Sea of Tranquillity. 
And what did they reveal? There are at least four different kinds of moonquakes: (1) deep moonquakes about 700 km below the surface, probably caused by tides; (2) vibrations from the impact of meteorites; (3) thermal quakes caused by the expansion of the frigid crust when first illuminated by the morning sun after two weeks of deep-freeze lunar night; and (4) shallow moonquakes only 20 or 30 kilometers below the surface.
The first three were generally mild and harmless. Shallow moonquakes on the other hand were doozies. Between 1972 and 1977, the Apollo seismic network saw twenty-eight of them; a few "registered up to 5.5 on the Richter scale," says Neal. A magnitude 5 quake on Earth is energetic enough to move heavy furniture and crack plaster.

Furthermore, shallow moonquakes lasted a remarkably long time. Once they got going, all continued more than 10 minutes. "The moon was ringing like a bell," Neal says.
On Earth, vibrations from quakes usually die away in only half a minute. The reason has to do with chemical weathering, Neal explains: "Water weakens stone, expanding the structure of different minerals. When energy propagates across such a compressible structure, it acts like a foam sponge—it deadens the vibrations." Even the biggest earthquakes stop shaking in less than 2 minutes.
The moon, however, is dry, cool and mostly rigid, like a chunk of stone or iron. So moonquakes set it vibrating like a tuning fork. Even if a moonquake isn't intense, "it just keeps going and going," Neal says. And for a lunar habitat, that persistence could be more significant than a moonquake's magnitude.
"Any habitat would have to be built of materials that are somewhat flexible," so no air-leaking cracks would develop. "We'd also need to know the fatigue threshold of building materials," that is, how much repeated bending and shaking they could withstand.
Right: Representative lunar seismograms from the Apollo 16 station. [More]
What causes the shallow moonquakes? And where do they occur? "We're not sure," he says. "The Apollo seismometers were all in one relatively small region on the front side of the moon, so we can't pinpoint [the exact locations of these quakes]." He and his colleagues do have some good ideas, among them being the rims of large and relatively young craters that may occasionally slump.
"We're especially ignorant of the lunar poles," Neal continues. That's important, because one candidate location for a lunar base is on a permanently sunlit region on the rim of Shackleton Crater at the Moon's south pole.
Neal and his colleagues are developing a proposal to deploy a network of 10 to 12 seismometers around the entire moon, to gather data for at least three to five years. This kind of work is necessary, Neal believes, to find the safest spots for permanent lunar bases.
And that's just the beginning, he says. Other planets may be shaking, too: "The moon is a technology test bed for establishing such networks on Mars and beyond."
