The Voynich Manuscript has been confusing cryptographers since the 15th-century, when the document was bought by a Polish book dealer, Wilfrid Voynich, in 1912.

There are 240 pages in total, some of them are missing. The text is handwritten from left to right in an unknown language with illustrations or diagrams.

For centuries people had been trying to decode the unknown language. But, despite the bunch of attempts of world-famous cryptographers like Alan Turing, the key to the mysterious writing system remains unknown.

A small Inuit village in Canada was known by fur trappers who would pass through it occasionally. But in 1930, something weird happened; a fur trapper named Joe Labelle entered the island’s premises and didn’t find a single person there. In fact, 7 sled dogs were found dead from starvation in a grave that looked like it was man-made. A search was conducted to find the missing people, but not a single body was found.

 

The longest possible alien signal

Back in 1977, Ohio State University’s Big Ear Radio telescope used to support the search for extra-terrestrial intelligence received a signal that is now known as the “Wow!” signal. Astronomer Jerry R. Ehman discovered the anomaly while looking at the data and he was so amused by the signal he circled it and wrote “Wow!” next to it.

The signal is 72-seconds long and, unfortunately, it has never been repeated again. To this day nobody can explain the signal even though many tried by claiming it might have come from a man-made source. This signal remains the strongest candidate for an alien contact ever detected.

Kentucky meat shower

Back in 1876, the most random thing happened in Kentucky and it is now known as the “Kentucky meat shower”. While lovely Mrs. Crouch was making soap on her porch, she noticed that something weird falling from the sky and she was sure it was meat. What was first believed to be a sign from God quickly became of interest to many scientists.

Those, who dared to taste the meat, claimed it was probably lamb or deer but scientists initially believed it was probably a lung tissue of a horse or a human infant, because, apparently, those are almost identical.

After further investigation, it was believed that the meat was probably vomited up by buzzards, “who, as is their custom, seeing one of their companions disgorge himself, immediately follow suit”. This theory was believed to be the best explanation.
