There are also some special mysterious places beyond the familiar boundaries around us. There is no end to the myths and mysteries about their natural environment. Despite trying desperately to unravel the mysteries of these places for ages, scientists have not been able to find any clues. Even in the present age of modern science and technology, these places continue to have a magical darkness aro und them. So there are some places in the world whose history or story is still unknown and mysterious to us. Let’s find out about all those mysterious places.
- Dark Matter
In astronomy and cosmology, dark matter is a kind of hypothesized substance, the nature of which is not yet known. They are thought to interact with other matter simply through the gravitational ball; The only way to identify them as such is through their gravitational effects. Dark matter is thought to account for about four-fifths of the total mass of the universe. They do not emit or absorb electromagnetic waves (e.g., light), nor do they interact at all with these waves, so there is no way to see them directly through binoculars. Heat is thought to account for 63% of the total mass of the universe and 23% of the total mass-energy.
The modern era of dark matter research began in the 1960s. When scientists went to measure the mass of different galaxies, they noticed some inconsistencies. American astronomer Vera Rubin (1926-2017) measured the rotational velocity of various galaxies with the most advanced spectrograph of the time, noting that Newton’s law of gravitation was incorrect, or that a large part of the total mass of the galaxy was hidden. Since then, the concept of dark matter has been gaining popularity among scientists.
Although it is not yet possible to say with what dark matter is made, it can be said with certainty that our familiar electrons, protons, neutrons are not made of particles. Dark matter is made up of something that scientists have not yet discovered.
- California racetrack playa
The ‘California Racing Playa’ or ‘Running Stone’ Valley is another global marvel. The rocks in this area appear to move around on their own. Although no one has ever seen the rocks move, impressions from the thin mud layer indicate the rocks’ relocation. Some rocks can weigh hundreds of pounds, and the question of how these massive rocks migrate from one location to another has yet to be solved.
The fine footprints on the rock route suggest that the rocks moved while the valley was covered in a thin layer of clay. Although the rocks could have been moved by people or other creatures, no trace of them can be found in the surrounding muck. Experts learned of such a global incident in Death Valley, Plastra Playa, California, in 1948. Today’s scientists are still baffled by the enigma of the differences in rock mobility.

3. Jack the Ripper
The most well-known name for an unnamed serial killer is Jack the Ripper. The assailant is said to have operated in the Whitechapel District and surrounding regions of London, the United Kingdom’s capital, during the 18th century. In a letter, one individual claimed responsibility for the murder. This letter circulating in the public is where the name “Jack the Ripper” first appears. Most people thought the letter was a joke. Journalists sent the letter to pique public attention in the killings and newspaper closures. In the crime case file, the perpetrator is referred to as “Whitechapel’s killer” and “leather apron.” These names can also be seen in contemporary journalistic articles.
Jack the Ripper is responsible for one of history’s most legendary unsolved crimes. The identity of the panic-stricken killer who terrorised East London in 1888 remains unknown. The “Top Five” are Mary Ann Nichols, Annie Chapman, Elizabeth Stride, Catherine Edwess, and Mary Jane Kelly (“Canonical Five”). Between August 31 and November 9, 1988, they were killed. It is widely assumed that these assassinations are linked. There was no end in sight to the assassinations. The way the attacker mutilated his victim’s body was extraordinary, showing that he knew enough about human physiology. Many people hypothesised about who killed the five women in East London’s Whitechapel district, but no one was able to solve the case and probably never will. Since the late 1800s, however, several new credible ideas for this infamous case have surfaced. But, in the end, the question of who was Jack the Ripper remains unanswered.
4. The Voynich Manuscript
The Voynech manuscript has been studied by many professional and amateur cryptocurrencies, including American and British secret analysis in the First and Second World Wars, but so far no one has been able to prove the sign and it is a famous work in the history of cryptography. The incident started in 1912. A book in an unknown language was found in a monastery in Italy. The book was named after Wilfrid M. Horror, a Polish-American archaeologist, and was named after him, the Horror Manuscript.
Some pages are missing, but the current version has about 240 pages, most of which are illustrated. Many of the descriptions of the manuscript contain information about the medicinal manuscripts of the time, the illustrations of the plants, and their possible uses. The 240-page book, written in detail, is full of colorful hand-painted pictures. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. The book has won the title of the most mysterious book in the world due to the many mysteries surrounding it.
After carbon dating, it is thought to have been written sometime between 1404 and 1438. The six-hundred-year-old book contains pictures of unknown little plants and strangely shaped people.
Many professional and amateur informants, including American and British cryptocurrencies from World War I and World War II, have analysed the Viennese document. So yet, no one has been able to submit the ideal solution, which is not surprising. Popular imagination has stoked the mystery of the manuscript’s meaning and provenance, making it the topic of books and ideas. None of the many estimates proposed in the last hundred years have yet been independently verified.
In 1969, the Voynech manuscript Hans P. Krauss donated the Bainaka Rare Book and Manuscript Library (Bainaka Rare Books and Manuscripts Library) to Yale University. Where it is listed under call number MS 408.
5. Jimmy Hoffa
immy Hofa was the leader and writer of the legendary workers’ union. He was born on February 14, 1913 in Indiana, USA. He became an important public figure and activist of the International Brotherhood of Teamsters (IBT) Union. He was actively involved in the development of trade unions. He is a supporter of civil rights and it was published in various statements. On July 30, 1975, the teamster union leader notorious for his involvement in organised crime vanished in Oakland County, Michigan, and is now considered dead. The identity of his killer(s) and the whereabouts of his body are still unknown. Police and forensic anthropologists have combed through a number of locations in Detroit and Oakland County but have come up empty-handed.
Jimmy Hofa was involved in organized crime until his disappearance. In two separate trials, Hofa was convicted by a jury of tampering, fraud and attempted bribery. He was imprisoned in 1986 and sentenced to 13 years in prison. In 1981, he resigned as president of the union. Hoffa’s remains was said to be buried beneath Giants Stadium in New Jersey, according to one popular idea. This theory, however, has been discredited. His assailant’s identity is likewise unknown. Richard “The Iceman” Kuklinski, a hit man, claimed to have killed Hoffa and placed his remains in a scrap yard before his death in 2006. Before he died, a novelist named Philip Carlo paid a visit to Kuklinski in prison and authored a book about his confessions. Following the publication of the book, a number of police officials gave media interviews casting doubt on the confession. With each passing year, it looks that Hoffa’s remains will never be discovered.
6. Where is Cleopatra’s tomb?
Her whole life will tell where Cleopatra’s attraction is. Egypt’s last powerful pharaoh, the last empress of the Ptolemaic dynasty. Greek and Egyptian, both blood flowing in his body. By the time Cleopatra landed on the stage of history, the political situation in Egypt was going through a lot of tension. At the time of the Roman domination; Naturally the focus was on Egypt. And ancient Egypt is changing little by little. The Egyptian language is not used in the royal court. Greek customs have replaced it. There, Cleopatra welcomed the antiquity of Egypt. He was the only ruler of the Ptolemaic dynasty who voluntarily learned the Egyptian language.
After their deaths in 30 B.C., historians suggest that Cleopatra VII and her lover, Mark Antony, were buried together in a tomb. The tomb was situated near the temple of Isis, an Egyptian goddess, and became a “lofty and gorgeous” monument containing valuables made of gold, silver, emeralds, pearls, ebony, and ivory, according to Plutarch (A.D. 45-120).
The tomb’s exact location is unknown. In 2010, Egypt’s former antiquities minister, Zahi Hawass, undertook excavations at Taposiris Magna, a site near Alexandria that has a number of tombs dating from Cleopatra VII’s reign. While several exciting archaeological finds were uncovered, Hawass announced in a series of news releases that Cleopatra VII’s tomb was not one of them. Even if Cleopatra’s tomb survives to this day, archaeologists warn that it may be badly robbed and unidentified.
Another suspicion of historians is that the tomb may have been submerged. The ancient city of Alexandria, once the capital of Cleopatra, is now 20 feet below sea level. Although the wreckage was found, the process of finding the tomb did not begin that way. Maybe that mysterious queen is hiding there. Her boyfriend is lying next to her. Away from all the noise, the life after death is spent in a little solitude together. In the words of Shakespeare-
“She shall be buried by her Antony:
No grave upon the earth shall clip in it
A pair so famous. ”
7. What’s the fate of the Ark of the Covenant?
The ark of the covenant was a holy book made by the Israelites. It includes a promise by God that He will dwell among His people and give them the top of the ark of guidance from the seat of mercy.
The inside of the sky made of biblical wood was covered with gold and it was eighteen cubits long and half a height (45 “x 27” x 27 “).
There were gold rings around four feet, through which wooden poles, covered with gold, were carried to carry the ark.
A Babylonian army led by King Nebuchadnezzar II attacked Jerusalem in 587 B.C., plundering the city and destroying the First Temple, the Jewish people’s place of worship. The ark of the covenant is a book that contains tablets engraved with ten orders and it was housed in the First Temple. The Ark’s fate remains unknown. According to ancient reports, the ark was either returned to Babylon or buried before the city was taken. It’s also possible that the ark was blown up during the siege of the city. In any case, the location of the ark is unknown. Several stories and traditions regarding the ark’s fate have been told since its disappearance. According to one narrative, the ark eventually made its way to Ethiopia, where it is now kept. According to another legend, the ark was divinely hidden and would not be revealed until a messiah appears.
