1. In China there is a river with a waterfall that does not freeze in winter at minus 30 degrees Celsius. But in the middle of summer, the stream, for unexplained reasons, begins to freeze.
2. A very tiny pond (100 × 60 m) in the Taldykorgan region of Kazakhstan does not dry out even at the height of summer, but the water remains ice-cold. There is no fish or algae growing there. Exact studies were not conducted there, since divers, even with a full air balloon, begin to choke after just three minutes.
3. The valley of the falling birds is in the mountains of the Indian state of Assam. Every August in the middle of the night birds start to fall from the sky. At the same time, the birds are in a semi-conscious state and do not even try to escape when they are picked up.
4. Vulemi – a prehistoric plant, the very fact of existence of which for a long time was the state secret of Australia. These are pine trees, whose age is about 150 million years.
5. Exploring the shapes and sizes of the Arctic Ocean and Antarctica, scientists were surprised to find that their outlines are almost identical. It was suggested that, as a result of the fall of the meteorite, the continent of Antarctica seemed to “squeeze out” from the other side of the planet. This fantastic hypothesis has many supporters today.
6. Kano disputes are revived microorganisms that were discovered in a piece of amber microbiologist Raul Cano. Surprisingly, the controversy hit the pitch 25 million years ago.
7. Not far from Rome there is an iridium anomaly. The content of iridium is 300 times higher than the norm. The layer lies at a depth corresponding to the geological boundary between the Mesozoic and Cenozoic – the time when dinosaurs died out. The same anomalies were found in Denmark, Spain and the Caspian Sea coast. Perhaps this is the trail of the fall of the meteorite.
8. There is a phenomenon called a thunderbolt. This is a high voltage zone that occurs after a lightning discharge into the ground. Trying to pass in this motley, a person can perish. Fortunately, the energy funnel in the place of lightning strike exists only for a few minutes.
9. A mysterious phenomenon, characteristic of all high-precision measuring instruments, is the zero drift. With subtle metrological measurements, errors are repeated with constant constancy. The surrounding space continuously changes some of its parameters and acts on the arrows of the instruments. What exactly is changing is still not precisely clarified.
10. “Drossolides” in Greek means “droplets of moisture”. This is the name of the phenomenon that is regularly observed on the coast of the island of Crete in the middle of summer, usually in the pre-morning hours, when fog droplets condense in the air. Numerous eyewitnesses describe how a scene of a huge battle appears on their eyes over the sea near the castle of Franca-Castello. Cries and the sound of weapons are heard. The mirage slowly approaches from the sea and disappears in the castle walls. Historians say that in this place about 150 years ago there was a battle between the Greeks and the Turks: its image, strayed in time, allegedly observed on the shore at the castle of Franca-Castello.
