With the advancement of environmental education, we’re all becoming a lot smarter. However some of the most mind-boggling mysteries on Earth still haven’t been solved. One example might be the fate of my disappearing socks, but that’s not important right now, is it? Let’s delve into the discoveries that have had historians scratching their heads in disbelief and bewilderment.
Can you imagine an Antarctica without ice? The white-colored continent that we know today was actually once depicted on a map without any snow or ice at all. The man who created the map was Ottoman admiral and cartographer, Piri Reis. Reis compiled his map in 1513. What really surprises historians and modern-day cartographers is that the continent was only supposedly discovered in 1818. If that wasn’t enough, the map seems to show a bridge which connected South America and Antarctica. Perhaps environmental education wasn’t so strong at that stage.
