Video description
On September 22nd 1979, the sensors aboard the US Vela Satellite picked up a distinctive signal from somewhere in the vast expanse of the South Atlantic ocean. It was a mysterious “double flash” of blinding light. Even today no-one knows for sure what caused the Vela incident... Subscribe now:

DarkDocs is a new narrated documentary video from Dark5 taking an in-depth look at at some of the most mysterious stories on Earth. This week: The Vela Incident. Pinpointed to within a 3,000 mile radius by the Vela 6911 satellite, the mysterious unexplained double flash of light was seen from space and likely emanated from near Bouvet Island between South Africa and Antarctica. The frozen isle is one of the most remote in the world and at the time was home to a Norwegian automated weather station. The only recent event of note was the 1964 discovery of a suspicious lifeboat of unknown origin that was laden with supplies.

Subscribe to Dark Docs: When the Mercury 9 mission launched from Cape Canaveral in 1963, it was ostensibly to prove the endurance of the human body in space over extended periods of time and to document the earth from above.

Russia's Ghost Radio Station: What is the Mysterious Sound Heard on UVB-76?

No one knows for sure what is being heard when tuned into radio frequency 4625 kHz. Secret, coded messages sent across airwaves between governments and spies? A signal ready to sound an alarm? Or a mysterious transmission tuned to interact with the ionosphere? Known to be of Russian origin, though this has never been confirmed by the Russian government, the signal was a continuous broadcast of repeated pip that has since become an unsettling looping and buzzing tone. For decades, the source of the broadcast was entirely unknown, until suddenly and unexpectedly, the first spoken words on the station identified it...

B-52 Landing Without a Tail: Severe Turbulence & America's Secret Nuclear Deterrent

It was a “most unusual story” so difficult to believe that the U.S. Air Force felt obligated to turn the event into a training video to document “aviation history.” Marked “Official Use Only,” and to be shown only to “Authorized Personnel,” “Flight Without a Fin” showed a jet-powered bomber flying with its tail and vertical stabilizer sheared clean off. The video captured extensive real-life footage of the aircraft in flight, and the Directorate of Aerospace Safety hoped that it would “enhance pilot understanding of B-52 flight characteristics and heighten appreciation of its capabilities.”

A Time-Lapse Map of Every Nuclear Explosion Since 1945 - by Isao Hashimoto

Japanese artist Isao Hashimoto has created a beautiful, undeniably scary time-lapse map of the 2053 nuclear explosions which have taken place between 1945 and 1998, beginning with the Manhattan Project's "Trinity" test near Los Alamos and concluding with Pakistan's nuclear tests in May of 1998. This leaves out North Korea's two alleged nuclear tests in this past decade (the legitimacy of both of which is not 100% clear). Each nation gets a blip and a flashing dot on the map whenever they detonate a nuclear weapon, with a running tally kept on the top and bottom bars of the screen. Hashimoto,...

Why Robin Hood Is Actually A Really Bad Guy

Why is Robin Hood the good guy in all the movies? Why does every single movie show Robin Hood as doing good deeds, when he is actually wasn't always so nice in the beginning? If we learn world history via Hollywood, we are in trouble, as the movie version of historical events is often a butchered slice of past life that bears little resemblance to what actually happened. The movie Braveheart, which depicted William Wallace as a near-faultless hero, has been called one of the “most historically inaccurate movies” of our time.
