Eight great things found on the seabed

  The vast underwater world is a strange treasure house. It is not only rich in natural resources, but also cherishes the treasures of countless human worlds. Here are some of the strange creatures found on the seabed and the strange objects that are salvaged from the bottom of the sea.
  1. The “computer” of
  ancient Greece The Antikisera installation of ancient Greece was sleeping on the seabed for thousands of years and was salvaged in 1900. This is one of the most amazing underwater archaeological discoveries to date. This device is the oldest known complex gear device and its specific use remains a mystery. It is speculated that it may be used to predict eclipses and eclipses. Due to its structural complexity, this device is also known as the world’s first “analog computer.”
  2. “Apollo” rocket engine No. 11
  on July 20, 1969, the US “Apollo” spacecraft 11 successfully sent astronauts to the moon, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin for the first time in the moon Left the footprints of humanity. The “Apollo” No. 11 spacecraft carrying the “Saturn” No. 5 rocket, its engine wreck has been sleeping on the Atlantic Ocean at more than 4,800 meters deep. In March 2013, Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon.com, decided to salvage the wreckage and display it at the Kansas Aerospace Center after repair.
  3. ruins of ancient cities
  in the long history of human progress, there is the final fate of some of the city sank. The current technology allows archaeologists to rediscover and study these submarine urban sites, the most striking of which is the ancient city of Tonys discovered in the Egyptian waters in 2000. The city of Tonis is known by the ancient Greeks as “Iraq Ron”, the largest population center of Crete during the Minoan civilization, and the location of the legendary Minos Labyrinth. Archaeologists have discovered a large number of precious cultural relics on the sea floor, from which they can see the past glory of Heraklion.
  4. Coelacanth
  Coelaoptera is a type of total fin. This species not only breathes air, but also uses fins to walk. It is an important evidence for the evolution of fish to amphibians. Scientists once thought the coelacanth as early as extinct from the earth 65 million years ago, until 1938, a marine biologist from Africa fishermen to catch sea
  fish found in a live coelacanth. Later, a coelacanth was discovered in Indonesia. Perhaps for fishermen who catch them, coelacanths have no value, but for biologists, coelacanth is an extremely precious biological “living fossil”. Not long ago, scientists completed the genome sequencing of coelacanths and found that the difference in genome sequence of coelacanths living in the coastal areas of Tanzania and the coast of Indonesia in eastern Africa is very small, which may be the main reason for them to become “living fossils”.
  5. Corsair and Artillery In
  1718, the legendary pirate ship of the most famous pirate “Black Beard” (real name Edward Titch) in the history of the world’s voyages – “Queen Anne Revenge” in Beaufort, North Carolina, USA A sandbar near the special area ran aground, and the pirates abandoned the ship and were forced to sink the ship into the sea. In 1966, the wreckage of Queen Anne’s Revenge was first discovered and thousands of artifacts were salvaged. In 2013, there were new discoveries about the Queen Anne’s Revenge. Archaeologists found the artillery of the ship. The number of artillery pieces discovered so far is 20.
  6. Microorganisms from the Jurassic
  In 2012, scientists discovered microbes from the Jurassic period from sediments at depths of tens of meters below the ocean floor of the North Pacific Ocean. Although buried in the seabed for as long as 86 million years, there are still living microorganisms. The dinosaurs of their era have long since disappeared, and they have survived only with the organic matter and oxygen in the scarce silt, and their powerful survivability is breathtaking. Scientists don’t know much about these deep-sea microbes, and they don’t name them. Their DNA doesn’t match any existing bacteria.
  7. Silver Treasure
  In 1941, the British “Gail Sopa” cargo ship carrying nearly 240 tons of silver bricks was hit by Nazi German torpedoes and finally sank 480 kilometers off the coast of Ireland. In the summer of 2012, the US Odyssey Marine Exploration Company announced that it has salvaged more than 61 tons of silver bricks, worth $36 million, creating the world record for the highest value of treasures found in the same location.
  8. giant squid
  giant squid is the world’s largest animal, the largest invertebrates. Scientists don’t know much about this animal. Giant carp bodies have been found on the coast only – some individuals are more than 12 meters in length – but few live animals are found. In 2001, for the first time, scientists observed a living giant squid on the seabed, when the giant squid was still in its infancy. In 2012, scientists also photographed the movement of adult giant squid in the ocean.
