Like many harbors along the coast of Maine, Rockland has been home to shipbuilding, shipping, fishing, fish processing, and more recently a growing number of recreational boaters. Below it all, the silent creatures of the cold salt water have held onto their secrets. Some, like anemones stay put in one place all their lives, others like sea urchins, sea stars, seals and lobsters move around. Like us they call this place home. Meet some of them in this video narrated by Caitlin Cleaver, a marine biologist, diver and director of science and research at the Hurricane Island Foundation.

Seeds Found in Meteorite In 1864 a meteor shower fell near Peillerot, a town in southern France. The meteorites were sent to a museum in Montauban. From there, most pieces of the meteorite were sent to different museums in all of Europe. Only two meteorites remained in Montauban, sealed inside a glass jar. That would be cool, to have meteorites in a glass jar in your house, great conversation piece! Not long after this event, a team of researchers from Chicago found entire seeds and coal embedded inside one of the meteorites. The first assumption was that the plant and coal fragments had somehow attached to the meteorite on impact. The problem was that the entire meteorite was covered in a glassy layer that was probably created by the heat of falling through the atmosphere, so the theory was dismissed! Researchers started to believe that they may have found the first proof of extraterrestrial life ever!! Even today people use this example of seeds inside this meteorite as proof of alien life forms. Everyone was pretty excited until further research proved that when the meteorite was placed in contact with water, it would became soft and clay-like so the insertion of the plant and coal fragments inside could have been child's-play for anyone. After this shocking discovery, it then became obvious that someone had messed around with the meteorites before being sealed in the glass jar. The proof of life on other planets was debunked completely when researchers discovered that the supposed glassy layer formed by the heat of falling through the atmosphere, was just dried glue. Pretty sick prank. 7. Maine Penny In August 1957, the Maine Penny, also called the Goddard Coin, was discovered by amateur archaeologist Guy Mellgren, who was in his second year of excavation at the Goddard archeological site on the central Maine coast. The site contained remains of an old Native American settlement and the silver coin he found was pretty confusing and definitely out of place! It was fast misidentified as a British penny from the 12th century. Twenty years later more than 30,000 items discovered at the site, including the mysterious silver coin, were sent to the Maine State Museum. In 1978 experts proclaimed it was a Norse coin, not British. It was determined that the coin was probably minted sometime between 1065 and 1080 during the reign of King Olaf III. Given that the Goddard site was occupied by a Native American settlement, the presence of a Norse coin is pretty odd. This discovery made many people believe that there was pre-Columbian European contact with America and that the Vikings may have been the first to arrive. That sounds exciting but a coin is unfortunately not enough to prove anything by itself. It could be that the mysterious silver object, currently found at the Maine State Museum, got to the Goddard Site through Viking explorers or Native American trade networks, or it is simply a hoax. But for now it remains mystery! 6. Ferrari Found in a Backyard Have you ever thought of getting a Ferrari? If you did, you might want to grab a metal detector and check your backyard for a few hours! You might find some bottle caps, some coins and if you’re really lucky even a Ferrari! You don’t think it’s possible? Think again! In 1978 two boys were playing in the yard of their new home, in Los Angeles. While digging around the yard they found – you guessed it – a Ferrari! The family called authorities and a full excavation began. It was revealed that a 1974 Ferrari Dino 246 GTS was buried in the yard. The car was wrapped in towels and rags to preserve it, meaning that whoever put it there intended to come back for it, but never made it. Why was such a car buried there you wonder? Well, after the police conducted an investigation, they found out that the car was supposed to be driven into the ocean by some thieves so that the original owners could claim the insurance on it. The criminals, however, were car lovers and simply couldn’t do it! So they buried the beautiful car hoping that they would return to get it back, but they never had the chance. If you car lovers out there are watching, don’t worry! The car was later bought by a mechanic that restored it, and it now looks better than ever. Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!
