ppt on four mysteries of the world

  1. 1. MYSTERIES OF THE WORLD A LIFE SKILL FA 3 PROJECT BY Divyansh Mishra class – 9th vindhyas
  2. 2. • BIG FOOT THE STORY OF A MYSTERIOUS ANIMAL
  3. 3. • Bigfoot, also known as sasquatch, is the name given to an ape- or hominid-like creature that some people believe inhabits forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest region of North America. Bigfoot is usually described as a large, hairy, bipedal humanoid. The term sasquatch is an anglicized derivative of the Halkomelem word sásqets. • Most scientists discount the existence of Bigfoot and consider it to be a combination of folklore, misidentification, and hoax, rather than a living animal, because of the lack of physical evidence and the large numbers of creatures that would be necessary to maintain a breeding population. A few scientists, such as Jane Goodall ,Grover Krantz and Jeffrey Meldrum, have expressed interest and some measure of belief in the creature.
  4. 4. BERMUDA TRIANGLE THE TRIANGLE OF DEATH
  5. 5. The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the Devil's Triangle, is an undefined region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean, where a number of aircraft and ships are said to have disappeared under mysterious circumstances. The triangle does not exist according to the US Navy, and the name is not recognized by the US Board on Geographic Names. Popular culture has attributed various disappearances to the paranormal or activity by extraterrestrial beings.Documented evidence indicates that a significant percentage of the incidents were spurious, inaccurately reported, or embellished by later authors. In a 2013 study, the World Wide Fund for Nature identified the world’s 10 most dangerous waters for shipping, but the Bermuda Triangle was not among them. Contrary to popular belief, insurance companies do not charge higher premiums for shipping in this area.
  6. 6. • • ATLANTIS • THE LOST MYSTERIOUS CITY
  7. 7. • Atlantis (Ancient Greek: Ἀτλαντὶς νῆσος, "island of Atlas") is alegendary island first mentioned in Plato's dialogues Timaeus and Critias, written in c. 360 BC. According to Plato, Atlantis was a naval power lying "across Atlantis sank into the ocean "in a single day and night of misfortune." • The possible existence of Atlantis was discussed throughoutclassical the Pillars of Hercules" that conquered many parts of Western Europe and Africa 9,000 years before the time of the legendary Athenian lawgiver Solon, i.e. in the 10th millennium BC. After a failed attempt to invade Athens, antiquity, but it was usually rejected and occasionally parodied by later authors. Alan Cameron wrote: "It is only in modern times that people have taken the Atlantis story seriously; no one did so in antiquity"
  8. 8. • WOW! SIGNAL • SIGNAL FROM UNIVERSE
  9. 9. • The Wow! signal was a strong narrowband radio signal detected by Jerry R. Ehman on August 15, 1977, while he was working on a SETI project at the Big Ear radio telescope of The Ohio State University, then located at Ohio Wesleyan University's Perkins Observatory in Delaware, Ohio. The signal bore the expected hallmarks of non-terrestrial and non-Solar System origin. It lasted for the full 72-second window that Big Ear was able to observe it, but has not been detected again. The signal has been the subject of significant media attention. • Amazed at how closely the signal matched the expected signature of an interstellar signal in the antenna used, Ehman circled the signal on the computer printout and wrote the comment "Wow!" on its side. This comment became the name of the signal.
