Sometimes, we find something that’s been hidden or buried for hundreds, or even thousands of years, and changes the way we think about our own history. Here are some truly incredible recent discoveries that have shed fresh light on the past.
The ocean covers 70% of our planet. The deep-sea floor is a realm that is largely unexplored, but cutting-edge technology is enabling a new generation of aquanauts to go deeper than ever before. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 Beneath the waves is a mysterious world that takes up to 95% of Earth's living space. Only three people have ever reached the bottom of the deepest part of the ocean. The deep is a world without sunlight, of freezing temperatures, and immense pressure. It's remained largely unexplored until now. Cutting-edge technology is enabling a new generation of aquanauts to explore deeper than ever before. They are opening up a whole new world of potential benefits to humanity. The risks are great, but the rewards could be greater. From a vast wealth of resources to clues about the origins of life, the race is on to the final frontier The Okeanos Explorer, the American government state-of-the-art vessel, designed for every type of deep ocean exploration from discovering new species to investigating shipwrecks. On board, engineers and scientists come together to answer questions about the origins of life and human history. Today the Okeanos is on a mission to investigate the wreck of a World War one submarine. Engineer Bobby Moore is part of a team who has developed the technology for this type of mission. The “deep discover”, a remote operating vehicle is equipped with 20 powerful LED lights and designed to withstand the huge pressure four miles down. Equivalent to 50 jumbo jets stacked on top of a person While the crew of the Okeanos send robots to investigate the deep, some of their fellow scientists prefer a more hands-on approach. Doctor Greg stone is a world leading marine biologist with over 8,000 hours under the sea. He has been exploring the abyss in person for 30 years. The technology opening up the deep is also opening up opportunity. Not just to witness the diversity of life but to glimpse vast amounts of rare mineral resources. Some of the world's most valuable metals can be found deep under the waves. A discovery that has begun to pique the interest of the global mining industry. The boldest of mining companies are heading to the deep drawn by the allure of a new Gold Rush. But to exploit it they're also beating a path to another strange new world. In an industrial estate in the north of England, SMD is one of the world's leading manufacturers of remote underwater equipment. The industrial technology the company has developed has made mining possible several kilometers beneath the ocean surface. With an estimated 150 trillion dollars’ worth of gold alone, deep-sea mining has the potential to transform the global economy. With so much still to discover, mining in the deep ocean could have unknowable impact. It's not just life today that may need protecting; reaching the deep ocean might just allow researchers to answer some truly fundamental questions. Hydrothermal vents, hot springs on the ocean floor, are cracks in the Earth's crust. Some claim they could help scientists glimpse the origins of life itself. We might still be years away from unlocking the mysteries of the deep. Even with the latest technology, this kind of exploration is always challenging. As the crew of the Okeanos comes to terms with a scale of the challenge and the opportunity that lies beneath, what they and others discover could transform humanity's understanding of how to protect the ocean. It's the most hostile environment on earth, but the keys to our future may lie in the deep.

The whole point of you having a freezer at home is that it keeps your food fresh for longer. How many of us have a pizza at the bottom of a freezer draw that’s been in there for years? When something is frozen, time stands still. That’s great news for adventurers and explorers, because when they come across something that’s been locked inside ice, it’s like getting a window into the past. Today we’re going to be looking at 12 truly incredible things that have been found inside ice. Some of them have been there for thousands of years!
Places on earth no human has ever set foot on. These are incredible locations and stunning spots which have never been touched before.

One of those areas is Mariana Trench – a narrow fissure in the sea floor, located in the western part of the Pacific. The trench is the deepest known region on the planet and was formed millions of years ago. Number 10 Northern Patagonia, Chile Hosting Chile's wildest landscapes, the area hides untouched rainforests, peaks, rivers, and lakes. The field of northern Patagonia is also home to one of the largest masses of ice found outside of the polar region. Number 9 Machapuchare Mountain Machapuchare is a sacred peak for the Hindu religion. It’s said that Lord Shiva, an important Hindu deity, lives here. The ‘Fish Tail Mountain’ gets its name from the shape of the peak as seen from a certain angle. Number 8 Sarlacc Pit, Canada A giant gaping cave was found in Canada in 2018 and it was named Sarlacc Pit, after the pit-dwelling beast in Star Wars. The discovery of the cave, concealed in the ground of the British Columbia's Provincial Park, was a remarkable achievement for the explorers. Number 7 New Hebrides Trench Although we’ve reached to the sky in exploration, very few attempted to go in the other direction. We may know more today about stars and galaxies than we know about Earth’s oceans. There are more than 30 deep-sea trenches around the world and most can be found in the Pacific Ocean. In 2013 an expedition to the unexplored New Hebrides trench in the Pacific has revealed, with the help of high-tech cameras, the abundance of crustaceans and cusk eels that live more than 23,000 feet deep. Number 6 Star Mountains, Papua New Guinea The Star Mountains is a massive mountain range extending from the Indonesian border to the Hinderberg wall. It’s a network of huge limestone plateaus, up to 6,000 feet tall and 30 miles long, that protect the area. Number 5 Gamburtsev Mountains, Antarctica Mountains the size of the Alps have been found in Antarctica, entombed in ice – suggesting that the ice sheet formed more rapidly than scientists initially thought. Using gravity and radar sensors, maps were created showing details of the Gamburtsev subglacial mountains. Number 4 Yucatan Cenotes, Mexico There are thousands of cenotes all across Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula, places that once were revered by the Mayans as sacred wells, and still an attraction for people worldwide. The Yucatan is characterized mainly by its limestone bedrock, a soluble type of rock that can dissolve after being exposed to water for millennia. The collapse of limestones sometimes reveals the cave underneath, thus marking the birth of a cenote. The caves fill over time with water filtered directly by the earth, creating lakes and stunning views. Since there aren’t many rivers in the Yucatan, they were once the primary source of water for the Mayans. Number 3 Gangkhar Puensum, Bhutan Gangkhar Puensum, in translation ‘White Peak of the Three Spiritual Brothers’, is the highest mountain in Bhutan, with its peak reaching almost 25,000 feet. Most of the sources say that it’s located at the border with China. However, for many years, different maps would show it as various heights and even place it in completely different locations. It’s said to be the highest mountain in the world that has still not been fully summited by man. There have been four expeditions, none of them successful due to impassable terrain and sudden weather changes. Number 2 Sahka Federal Republic, Russia One-fifth of Russia is covered by the Siberian Sakha Republic, also known as Yakutia. The major part is located above the Arctic Circle. The hard soil which is covered by permafrost, make Yakutia a deadly place to live. In July, some parts of Yakutia can reach up to 100 degrees Fahrenheit, whilst the average recorded temperature is as low as -50 degrees. Sahka is one of the few places on Earth where the mountains, rivers, and lakes are still untouched by civilization. Number 1 Tsingy de Bemahara National Park, Madagascar Tsingy de Bemahara, translating as ‘Where one cannot walk barefoot’, is a national park located in Madagascar covered in huge rock formations. With the help of the locals, a set of suspended bridges and steel cables was built, allowing the landscape to be seen from the air. However, getting to the park is still no easy feat. Located on the remote west coast of Madagascar, Tsingy de Bemahara is only accessible by a dirt road, which becomes unnavigable for six months a year during the rainy season.

In the year 1970, Soviet scientists began one of the greatest and most ambitious drilling and mining experiments in human history. In the Kola Peninsula, a drilling project started which would go on to reach farther down into the Earth’s crust than any other in history, setting a Guinness World record that still stands today.
Even now, over twenty years since the cessation of all drilling activities at the borehole, which has since been welded shut, it’s remembered as a grand science project which brought about great scientific discoveries, as well as rumors, myths and legends of the type that wouldn’t be out of place in a modern horror movie.
