Most of the world is an absolute mystery. Sure, we know some things–like how to tie our shoes and what our parent”s HBO GO passwords are–but for the most part, we are surrounded by a world that”s full of questions.

Erected in 1979, the Georgia Guidestones have been a mystery for decades. Thought of as the American Stonehenge, the stone tablets are emblazoned with The New 10 Commandments. The commandments are written in multiple languages, but shed no light on who is responsible for the Georgia Guidestones.

For centuries, we humans have been searching for the Lost City of Atlantis, which is said to be home to the god Neptune and beautiful mermaids.

In 1977, an Ohio State University radio telescope detected an unusual pulse of radiation from the area around the Sagittarius constellation.
