10. Vozrozhdeniya Island
In times of war, islands are a perfect place for both military bases, and secret experimental labs! During the Cold War, the Soviet Union used Vozrozhdeniya Island for just that purpose. In fact, this island was at its peak during the earliest days of the Soviet Union, in the 1920's.

9. Bannerman Island
Bannerman Island can be found a little ways away from New York City. At one time, it was one man's dream to build a mighty castle there, which you can still see part of today. It is (or was) one of the most amazing mansions in the US. But the real mystery is that the island seems to be cursed.

8. Earthquake Island
Earthquakes are some of the most damaging natural disasters in the world, but in 2013, one actually created an island. In Pakistan, a massive earthquake devastated the country, killing dozens and destroying many homes. But, once the earthquake had stopped, people started to notice something odd happening just off shore.

7. Magic Island
Not all mysterious islands are found here on Earth. In fact, NASA is constantly searching planets and stars for places where humans can go. So imagine the surprise when Jason Hofgartner, a planetary scientist at Cornell University started to look at the latest images of the Cassini Space Probe, and noticed that Titan, appeared to have an island on it.

6. Floating Eye Island
In 2016, a man named Sergio Neuspiller was in Argentina looking for locations to help film a science-fiction movie he was planning. When he surveyed the territory with a plane and looked at the Parana Delta, he found two very mysterious things. He found a lake in the shape of a perfect circle, and a floating island that is also in the shape of a perfect circle.

5. Isla Bermeja
For many countries, islands can be powerful and strategic places. Mexico claimed Isla Bermeja in the 1700’s to help extend their territory against rival nations.
They claimed the island as their own, and because it was farther than any other island in their territory, it greatly expanded the limit of their country’s economic reach.

4. Diego Garcia
The island of Diego Garcia can be found in the Indian Ocean, and it has a strange shape. It has pristine beaches and a tropical forest. But, in 1973, the United States (after leasing the island from Great Britain), moved in and installed a military base on the island.

3. Partridge Island
Not all islands are meant to be nice per se, and Canada's Partridge Island was a place with a specific purpose. It was meant to house immigrants who might have had communicable diseases, and was used as a quarantine until they could be cleared and enter the country properly. This island had a lot of people come in, including numerous Irish immigrants during the legendary potato famine of 1847.

2. Socotra Island
Socotra Island may just be one of the most mysterious islands on the face of the Earth, simply because its people and plants are unlike anything else, and no one is really sure why. 220 miles from Yemen, 30% of the plants on Socotra Island can't be found anywhere else on Earth. As such, it's been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and much of the island is also a national park.

1. Easter Island
Easter Island is without a doubt the most mysterious islands ever, simply because there's not a lot of information about the people who lived there. The Rapa Nui left behind giant, stone figures looking over the hillsides, and these people were extremely isolated. They were some 2,300 miles west of South America and 1,100 miles from the nearest island.

The Cocos Islands aviation links.

The Cocos (Keeling) Islands have been an important staging post for flights across the Indian Ocean between Australia, Asia, Africa and Europe. We forget these days when airliners cross oceans, how it used to be.

Mystery of the Lost Islands: Shark Island

Dave Salmoni travels to a remote island in the heart of the South Pacific in search of answers to an animal mystery. Rangiroa should be an island paradise, but it has a frightening reputation as the shark capital of the world. There are thousands of deadly sharks here—blacktip reef sharks, tiger sharks, silvertips, grey reef sharks, great hammerheads. These top predators are normally found in small numbers, but here in the middle of an ocean often described as a marine desert, they seem to congregate in incredible numbers. Dave plans to find out how one island can support so many large sharks, and what’s drawing them here. In the process, he has some truly close encounters with these marine predators in the process.

Mysterious Woman Found Alone on an Island

In 1853, a mysterious native American woman was found on an island at the coast of California. What makes it strange is that she was all alone by herself, and even today nobody knows how she ended up there or whats her true name is, she is now just referred to Juana Maria.

More information about the video content bellow:
1. The Territory of Cocos (Keeling) Islands is an Australian external territory in the Indian Ocean, comprising a small archipelago approximately midway between Australia and Sri LankaThe territory consists of two atolls made up of 27 coral islands, of which only two – West Island and Home Island – are inhabited.

2. The islands were first discovered in 1609 by William Keeling, but no settlement occurred until the early 19th century. One of the first settlers was John Clunies-Ross, a Scottish merchant; much of the island's current population is descended from the Malay workers he brought in to work his copra plantation. The British formally annexed the islands in 1857, and for the next century they were officially administered from either Ceylon or Singapore. The territory was transferred to Australia in 1955.
3. John Clunies-Ross was a merchant originating from the Shetland Islands. In 1813 he was at Timor as Third Mate on board the whaler Baroness Longueville when he received the opportunity to become captain of the brig Olivia, which opportunity he took. Reportedly he first cruised the waters of the then uninhabited Cocos (Keeling) Islands in 1825. After surveying them he moved his family to live on one of the islands in 1827.

4. West Island is the capital of the Cocos (Keeling) Islands. The population is roughly 120 and consists mainly of Europeans. It is the less populous of the two inhabited islands. It was part of the Clunies-Ross plantation and an airstrip was built here during World War II. As well as all the government buildings, it contains the airport, a general store and tourist accommodation.

5. It’s likely that you’ve heard very little or nothing about this incredible Australian destination, which is being called our “last unspoiled paradise”. Understandably, many activities and much of the employment centre on the water, which is as blue as the sand is white.

6. On the morning of 9 November 1914, the islands became the site of the Battle of Cocos, one of the first naval battles of World War I. A landing party from the German cruiser SMS Emden captured and disabled the wireless and cable communications station on Direction Island, but not before the station was able to transmit a distress call.

7. It was this group of islands that led to Charles Darwin's formation of the theory of coral atoll formation in 1836. Since Darwin's day the islands have continued to be a unique place for coral atoll research. On his voyage home after a three year journey aboard the HMS Beagle, Darwin stayed for only 10 days where he recorded evidence to support his theory of coral atoll formation. It was the only coral atoll he had ever visited to support his theory.

History of Buried Treasure - Full Documentary

A buried treasure is an important part of the popular beliefs surrounding pirates and Old West outlaws. According to popular conception, criminals and others often buried their stolen fortunes in remote places, intending to return for them later, often with the use of treasure maps. Pirate treasure- In reality, pirates burying treasure was rare: the only pirate known to have buried treasure was William Kidd, who is believed to have buried at least some of his wealth on Long Island before sailing into New York City. Kidd had originally been commissioned as a privateer for England, but his behavior had strayed into outright piracy, and he hoped that his treasure could serve as a bargaining chip in negotiations to avoid punishment. His bid was unsuccessful, however, and Kidd was hanged as a pirate.

In English fiction there are three well-known stories that helped to popularize the myth of buried pirate treasure: Wolfert Webber (1824) by Washington Irving, The Gold-Bug (1843) by Edgar Allan Poe and Treasure Island (1883) by Robert Louis Stevenson. They differ widely in plot and literary treatment but are blood kin from the common ancestor of the William Kidd legend. David Cordingly states that The effect of Treasure Island on our perception of pirates cannot be overestimated, and says the idea of treasure maps leading to buried treasure is an entirely fictional device. Stevenson's Treasure Island was directly influenced by Irving's Wolfert Webber, Stevenson saying in his preface It is my debt to Washington Irving that exercises my conscience, and justly so, for I believe plagiarism was rarely carried farther... the whole inner spirit and a good deal of the material detail of my first chapters... were the property of Washington Irving.

In 1911, American author Ralph D. Paine conducted a survey of all known or purported stories of buried treasure and published them in The Book of Buried Treasure. He found a common trait in all the stories: there was always a lone survivor of a piratical crew who somehow preserved a chart showing where the treasure was buried, but unable to return himself, he transfers the map or information to a friend or shipmate, usually on his deathbed. This person would then go search in vain for the treasure, but not before transferring the legend down to another hapless seeker.

Famous and notorious cases

The Roman historian Dio Cassius says that, in the early 2nd century, the Dacian king Decebalus had changed the course of river Sargetia and buried tons of gold and silver in the river bed. Later he ordered the river to be restored and the slaves involved in the works to be executed. However one of his nobles revealed its location to the Romans. The Byzantine historian Jordanes tells a similar story of the burial of the Visigoth king Alaric I and his treasure under the river Busento in 410. The burial places of the Khazar kings (qoruq) and other inner Asian people were also under a rerouted river.

There are a number of reports of supposed buried pirate treasure that surfaced much earlier than these works, which indicates that at least the idea was around for more than a century before those stories were published. For example, extensive excavation has taken place on Oak Island (in Nova Scotia) since 1795 in the belief that one or more pirate captains had stashed large amounts of loot there. These excavations were said to have been prompted by still older legends of buried pirate treasure in the area. No treasure has ever been reported to be found.

The Treasure of Lima is a supposed buried treasure on Cocos Island in the Pacific left there by pirates. The treasure, estimated to be worth £160 million, was stolen by British Captain William Thompson in 1820 after he was entrusted to transport it from Peru to Mexico

The only authenticated treasure chest in the United States, once owned by Thomas Tew, is kept at the Pirate Soul Museum in St Augustine, Florida.

Closer to modern times, the notorious drug lord, Pablo Escobar buried large sums of money in the form of US currency across Colombia. While a lot of it has been retrieved, large portions still remain buried.

Former corsair turned pirate, Olivier Levasseur known as The Buzzard, is known to have hidden one of the biggest treasures in pirate history, estimated at over 4.5 billion euros, and leaving a cryptogram (with templar alphabet) behind with its whereabouts.

Where Will the US Base Missiles in the Pacific?

The demise of a landmark arms control accord earlier this month means that U.S. missiles could soon be fielded to the western Pacific, and Pentagon leaders will likely consider Japan’s Ryukyu Islands and the Republic of Palau in Micronesia their most viable basing options.
