Unsolved mysteries


Voynich Manuscript

It is a detailed 240-page book written in a language or script that is completely unknown. Its pages are also filled with colorful drawings of strange diagrams, odd events and plants that do not seem to match any known species, adding to the intrigue of the document and the difficulty of deciphering it. The original author of the manuscript remains unknown. It has been called "the world's most mysterious manuscript."


Kryptos is a mysterious encrypted sculpture designed by artist Jim Sanborn which sits right outside the headquarters of the CIA. It's so mysterious, in fact, that not even the CIA has completely cracked the code.

Think you have what it takes to solve it?

Phaistos Disc

The mystery of the Phaistos Disc is a story that sounds like something out of an Indiana Jones movie. Discovered by Italian archaeologist Luigi Pernier in 1908 in the Minoan palace-site of Phaistos, the disc is made of fired clay and contains mysterious symbols that may represent an unknown form of hieroglyphics.

Some scholars believe that the hieroglyphs resemble symbols of Linear A and Linear B, scripts once used in ancient Crete.

Today the disc remains one of the most famous puzzles of archaeology.

Zodiac letters

The Zodiac letters are a series of four encrypted messages believed to have been written by the famous Zodiac Killer, a serial killer who terrorized residents of the San Francisco Bay Area in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The letters were likely written as a way to taunt journalists and police, and though one of the messages has been deciphered, the three others remain uncracked.

The identity of the Zodiac Killer also remains a mystery, though no Zodiac murders have been identified since 1970.

Shroud of Turin

It is a cloth made of linen cloth and bears an image of a man, who appears to be physically traumatized to death in a manner similar to crucifixion.

The Shroud is currently kept in the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist’s Royal Chapel.  Most Catholics believe that the cloth was placed on Jesus when he was buried.

Despite several scientific investigations, it’s still unclear how the shroud’s image got imprinted on it. Again, no one yet has managed to replicate the image.

The Bermuda Triangle

It is one of the greatest unexplained mysteries of modern times. The Bermuda Triangle, also known as The Devil’s Triangle, is the area in between Bermuda, Miami, and San Juan.

Over the years, there have been countless disappearing ships, boats, planes, and other mysterious happenings.  Each incident is bizarre and defies explanation.  Many believe that the area can be linked with the paranormal or even extraterrestrial.

One of the most famous Bermuda Triangle mysteries is the disappearing of Flight 19.  On December 5, 1945, the training group of fliers reported eerie phenomena. These fliers were receiving the best training in the world.  Flight 19 then disappeared forever.  Never seen nor heard from again.
