Football-size robot can skim discreetly along a ship’s hull to seek hollow compartments concealing contraband.
Last week, at the International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems, MIT researchers unveiled an oval-shaped submersible robot, a little smaller than a football, with a flattened panel on one side that it can slide along an underwater surface to perform ultrasound scans. . . .

Treasure hunter finds 18th century pirate ship off Cape Cod (+) The Prince of Pirates – Black Sam Bellamy

Featured Image: “Map showing the location of the pirate ship Whydah Gally, captained by the famous “Black Sam” Bellamy, which wrecked off the coast of in Cape Cod on April 26, 1717, killing Bellamy and all but 2 of his 145 men, and taking over 4.5 short tons (4.1 tonnes) of gold, silver, and other pirate treasure down with it. Hearing of the shipwreck, then-governor Samuel Shute dispatched Captain Cyprian Southack, a local salvager and cartographer, to recover “Money, Bullion, Treasure, Goods and Merchandizes taken out of the said Ship.”
By May 3, when Southack reached the location of the wreck, he found that a part of the ship was still visible breaching the water’s surface and much of the ship’s wreckage were scattered along more than four miles (6 km) of shoreline. He created this map (Whydah-map.jpg) of the wreck site, and reported that he had buried 102 of the Whydah crew and captives that had washed ashore. They had not found any significant treasure, but he wrote, “The riches and the guns would be buried in the sand.”
The sunken treasure remained little more than a local legend until the wreck was discovered in 1984, the first pirate ship wreck ever discovered in North America”. SOURCE: Wikipedia Commons. (Public Domain).

A party of brave submariners have discovered the tragic remains of Noah’s Ark deep beneath the icy waters off Alaska. Before being overcome by cold and starvation, Noah managed to scribble a few lines with his waterproof pen on some pretty long-lasting parchment stuff. These are his words from the past- ‘It’s not looking good out there on deck. The creatures have ‘gone all mutinous’ on me, demanding five course dinners and cable TV….

Divers find wreck of legendary pirate treasure ship

Divers in Tonga have discovered the wreck of a vessel said to be a historic pirate ship containing a legendary hoard of sunken treasure.

The wreck is thought to be of the Port-au-Prince sunk by local islanders after its pirate crew had filled the ship’s hold with gold and treasures looted from British vessels.

The British ship sailed into Pacific water in search of whales in 1806 after straying from its main mission of ambushing and capturing treasure ships.

But upon finding the Port-au-Prince in Tongan waters, the local king Finau Ulukalala II and his
people seized the ship and massacred most of the crew. . . . Read Complete Report w/ photos

The wreck of the ship that carried Captain Robert Scott on his doomed expedition to the Antarctic a century ago has been discovered off Greenland.

The SS Terra Nova was found by a team from a US research company.

Scott and his party set off from Cardiff aboard the Terra Nova in 1910 with the aim of becoming the first expedition to reach the South Pole.

The ship had a life after the polar trek, sinking off Greenland’s south coast in 1943.

It had been on a journey to deliver supplies to base stations in the Arctic when it was damaged by ice. The Terra Nova’s crew was saved by the US Coast Guard cutter Southwind. . . . Read Complete Report

 According to the fathers of The Hollow Earth Theory (Marshall B. Gardner, A Journey to the Earth’s Interior, & William Reed, The Phantom of the Poles) it is impossible to reach the North or South Poles because they do not exist. And If you dig deep enough into the documents you will find “problems” with each and every early polar explorer’s story and documentation in their claims.. Of course, thank goodness they don’t have that problem any more. You can go to any Radio Shack and get you a GPS indicator, take off on skies, snow machines or bunny boots, with the trusty GPS apparatus in your hand, and sooner or later the government will TELL you when reach the pole of your choise. Right! And the penguins are fighting with the polar bears at both poles. . . . EDITOR
