Teotihuacan has concealed a mysterious secret. Until Now.

An interesting discovery has been made in Mexico’s ancient city of¬†Teotihuacan. I wish that robots like this would be used in more mysterious ancient places – how about for exploring beneath the Sphinx where there may be large hollow chambers?

Teotihuacan ‘Orbs,’ Metallic Spheres, Found By Robot Under ‘Temple Of The Feathered Serpent’ In Mexico

The Huffington Post | By Ryan Grenoble

 

“For centuries, Mexico’s ancient city of Teotihuacan has concealed a mysterious secret, only recently revealed by the help of robots equipped with lasers and infrared cameras.

 

The small, remote-controlled devices have explored several rooms beneath the Temple of the Feathered Serpent, a structure described by Discovery as a “six-level pyramid decorated with snake-like creatures.” The probes revealed hundreds of mysterious yellow orbs that range from four to 12 centimeters across. Indiana Jones would most certainly approve…”

Stone Mystery in Sea of Galilee

“A giant “monumental” stone structure discovered beneath the waters of the Sea of Galilee in Israel has archaeologists puzzled as to its purpose and even how long ago it was built.

 

 

The mysterious structure is cone shaped, made of “unhewn basalt cobbles and boulders,” and weighs an estimated 60,000 tons the researchers said. That makes it heavier than most modern-day warships.

 

 

Rising nearly 32 feet (10 meters) high, it has a diameter of about 230 feet (70 meters). To put that in perspective, the outer stone circle of Stonehenge has a diameter just half that with its tallest stones not reaching that height. (See Photos of the Mysterious Sea of Galilee Structure”)…
