Default The Caribbean treasure map made from SPACE

Hunt for shipwrecks that astronaut 'found and charted while he was on a secret Pentagon mission to find Russian submarines'

Darrell Miklos to following charts created in May 1963 by his long-time friend and astronaut, Gordon Cooper
Cooper circumnavigated Earth 22 times over 34 hours while piloting the Mercury-Atlas 9 Faith 7 Spacecraft
The astronaut, who died in 2004, was searching for potential nuclear threats when he saw the 'shipwrecks'
Cooper wrote down the coordinates for each location, and then charted them on a sea map back on Earth
Before he died, the astronaut shared his notes with Miklos and the explorer is now trying to finish the search

This orbital map shows where Cooper's voyage aboard the
Mercury-Atlas 9 Faith 7 Spacecraft shows the path above the earth
he traveled. His potential treasure finds are focused on the
Caribbean and Bahamas

What interests me about this is it's one of the Mercury missions (the last one, in fact), none of which were exactly long duration.

Read the mission profiles in the two links at the bottom. "Couldn't sleep!" (laughing). That man was *busy*!

Too many stupid reality shows on tv nowadays.
Not that I don't enjoy some of them.
But it gives me a good reason to work in the garage.

This sounds about as promising as the Oak Island hunt
