Subscribe to Naked Science - http://goo.gl/wpc2Q1 Every other Wednesday we present a new video, so join us to see the truth laid bare... The moon is far more than just a beautiful object in the night sky. Ever since its creation 4.5 billion years ago the moon has been edging away from Earth into space. Throughout its journey, it has influenced our planet in different ways. But one things clear, without it life would never have emerged on Earth. 4.5 billion years ago the moon forms when another planet slams into the early Earth. The impact knocks our planet “off-balance” onto an axis of 23 degrees, which we still rotate around today. This is what gives us our seasons. Without it we would have no summers, springs, winters or falls. 4 billion years ago the solar system endures the most violent meteorite bombardment in its history, the Lunar Cataclysm. The Earth, being 50 times bigger than the moon, exerts a massive gravitational pull on incoming space debris. Because the moon is still so close to Earth it too gets hit. 99% of all craters on the lunar surface visible today are a result of this bombardment. 3 billion years ago the Earth has water and oceans. Because the moon is far closer its gravitational pull is far stronger on the Earth. The tides it creates are thousands of feet high and smash hundreds of miles inland every day. Scientists believe that these tides feed the Primordial Soup with the minerals required to start life. Without them only the most basic microbes would be on Earth today. Today the moon has the same gravitational pull as a mosquito landing on your head, yet some people still believe it can influence our planet in bizarre ways. The San Francisco Police Department tell us how crime appears to soar during a full moon. But the scientific data suggests otherwise, studies show no correlation between the Full Moon and violence. Naked Science investigates. Scientific research into the moon is allowing some scientists to predict when natural disasters will strike. Some researchers believe that when the sun and moon align and pull together on the Earth they can trigger both earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. In the future the moon will move so far from Earth that it will affect the fine balance of our planet, sending our climate tumbling out of control.

Striped Icebergs As water gets colder, there are numerous interesting occurrences that happen. There are "ice fingers" that can literally grow from the top of a frozen body of water and touch the bottom. There are also things that can be trapped in the ice perfectly preserved. But nothing is as strange...as colored icebergs. Or more specifically, striped icebergs. 10. The Crystal Cave While it's true that many geological wonders and oddities are found above ground, many are found underground. And for two brothers, they made the discovery of a lifetime when they found a cave entirely full of crystals. And I'm not talking tiny little crystals, I mean massive ones. Some of these crystals are estimated to weigh around 55 tons!! 9. The Chocolate Hills Sorry to disappoint you but I’m sad to say these are NOT actually hills made of chocolate. They wouldn’t be around anymore if they were!!! Anyway, in the Philippines, in the Bohol Province, you will find over 1200 mounds of limestone that are known as the "Chocolate Hills". Why? Because in the Summer season the grass on the mounds dry up and they turn a particularly dark brown color, which makes it resemble chocolate kisses. 8. Moeraki Boulders Sometimes the oddest of occurrences have the simplest scientific explanation, but it still boggles the mind! The Moeraki Boulders in New Zealand are large, round boulders with what looks like intricate details carved onto them. Some of them even look like a plate of armor of sorts. 7. Kilauea Volcano Ok, full warning here, volcanoes are DANGEROUS!!! Public Service Announcement over. Seriously though, volcanoes are another great example of a geological wonders and they are very dramatic and strange occurrences. Even though we know why they happen, sometimes they erupt for no reason at all, and that can really catch us all by surprise. However, one strange occurrence that we can count on is Kilauea Volcano on Hawaii. 6. Rainbow Mountains While these may look like regular mountains from afar, as you get closer, you can see that the colors get more and more beautiful. These mountains are a geological wonder of the world and are known for their coloring which looks like someone took a paintbrush and painted a rainbow directly on to the mountains! 5. Eye of The Sahara The desert can be a beautiful and strange place to find rock formations and other geological wonders. The Eye of the Sahara had been hiding in plain sight for years!! It was only recently known to us in the modern era because it was detected from space. When you see it from the sky and look down at the Eye of the Sahara, you'd see it makes a bullseye. How's that for strange? 4. Mount Roraima Mount Roraima is one of the oldest mountain formations on earth, estimated to be around 2 billion years old!! The floating island plateau is a completely real natural wonder, surrounded by three South American countries including Brazil, Guyana and Venezuela. 3. Stone Forest This stone forest of Shilin in China covers 300 square kilometers and looks like the landscape from another planet. These stone pillars or karst formations, are bunched together in such a way that it actually forms what looks like a stone forest. There are now trees around these stones to help sell the effect. These formations are over 270 million years old. 2. The Disappearing River This one is as cool as it is strange. In 2016, nature decided to divert a river in Canada, and it left a lot of people in scientific community scratching their heads as to what was going on. An expedition team was going to the Slims River Basin in Yukon Territory in Canada. When they got there, they found the river, the whole river, was gone. 1. Magnetic Lake There is something weird going on in the water at Lake Lonar! Located in Maharashtra, India, this lake actually causes magnetic disturbances. To the extent that it interferes with electrical equipment and makes compasses can go crazy when they are near it. (Kind of like the rumors from the Bermuda Triangle!) Origins Explained is the place to be to find all the answers to your questions, from mysterious events and unsolved mysteries to everything there is to know about the world and its amazing animals!
Check out these unsolved mysteries that have finally been solved! This top 10 list of creepy and mysterious mysteries have finally been explained after being unsolved for years!

Blood Falls Because of its remote location and inhospitable environment, there’s a lot still to be discovered in Antarctica. One feature that’s been a mystery ever since they were found are the blood falls in the Mcmurdo Dry Valley. Pouring from the Taylor Glacier, the water is a deep red colour, and has an average temperature of only 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit- well below the freezing point of 32! 9 Clicking in Stockholm Harbour In 1981, a Russian submarine, armed with a nuclear warhead, entered Swedish waters near a naval base. At the time it was blamed on an accidental navigation error, but since then, the Swedes have kept a careful listen out for any more intrusions into their territory. 13 years later, in 1994, acoustic devices picked up the tell tale sign of a vessel, with a series of metallic clicking noises being heard near Stockholm harbour. 8. The City of Troy The ancient city of Troy was the focus of Homer’s “Illiad”, where it lay under siege for more than 10 years before finally succumbing to a Greek army being led by King Agamemnon. Troy is famous for the beautiful Helen of Troy, Achilles, and the horse. Many stories have been told of the place, but the site of the true ancient city of Troy is located to the northwest of Turkey. 7. Mass Whale Graveyard In 2011, during a road widening project in the Atacama Desert of Chile, builders stumbled across a mass graveyard, but it wasn’t what you might expect. It was full of the bones of whales, strange walrus-faced dolphins and sloths all lying side by side. The fossils were found to be about 6 to 9 million years old, and it became a mystery as to why so many animals would die in one place together, and how it would happen in a place that was 130 feet above sea level. 6. The Bloop In 1997 a loud, ultra-low frequency sound, which became known as the “Bloop” was heard on hydrophones across the Pacific. It was so loud, in fact, that it was picked up by listening devices over 3,000 miles apart. The problem was, no-one had any idea what could make such a noise, and for the next decade there was much debate about its cause. 5. The Easter Island Statues Easter Island is one of the remotest inhabited islands in the world, more than 1,600 miles away from the nearest town. Ever since the first explorers visited the place, it has stood out for one main reason- the 887 Moai, giant statues of heads that are placed around the coast. 4. The Mary Celeste For more than 100 years the story of the Mary Celeste has baffled people. After the ship failed to arrive at port, search parties went to find it, and discovered it completely empty, with no sign of a struggle. But why would a crew abandon a seemingly fine ship, what could possibly convince them to do this? 3. The Wandering Rocks of Death Valley Racetrack Playa, a desert lake bed that lies in the mountains above Death Valley, has been the site of an extraordinary phenomenon- rocks that seemingly move by themselves. For decades, no-one has been able to explain how the rocks traverse the surface, leaving a trail in their wake. Some suggested it was caused by wind or rain, or perhaps even people moving them. It was only in December of 2013, though, that the truth came to light. 2. Amelia Earhart Amelia Earhart was a aviation pioneer, and became the first woman to make a solo flight across the Atlantic Ocean. She would go on to attempt a number of different challenges, but on July 2nd, 1937, she went missing, without a trace, in the Pacific while flying from Papua New Guinea to Howland Island as part of an attempt to fly around the world. 1. The Bermuda Triangle The Bermuda Triangle is undoubtedly one of the biggest mysteries ever, but in recent years the superstition surrounding the region has been debunked. It’s the part of the Atlantic Ocean between Miami, Bermuda, and Puerto Rico- and supposedly has been the site of many plane and ship disappearances.

11. Why are there so many flowers?
According to Charles Darwin, evolution occurs slowly through natural selection. Because of his theories, he called flowering plants “an abominable mystery”! How’s that for describing flowers?
10. Diversity at the Equator
Today, it’s common knowledge that the closer you get to the equator, the more diverse life becomes. Lush, tropical forests bursting with life are synonymous with equatorial regions, after all.
Phytoplankton are organisms that live in large bodies of water. This class of creatures include a variety of different subspecies, and they are everywhere. However, their diversity poses a bit of a problem. According to theories of evolution, there shouldn’t be so many varieties. The lack of resources should make it impossible for a large variety of organisms to survive in an ecosystem without killing each other off.
8. Animals That Don’t Need Oxygen
We are taught in school that oxygen is required for life. However, that isn’t exactly true. There are organisms that do not need oxygen and scientists can’t really explain how they can exist.
7. Gelatinous Rain
In 1994, a jelly-like substance rained from the sky onto the Washington town of Oakville. Anyone there when that happened??? According to urban legend, dozens became ill with flu-like symptoms and pets even died. Supposedly, scientists analyzing the substance found two types of bacteria, one of which is commonly found in the human digestive system.
6. Right Hand vs Left Hand
The majority of humans are right-handed. The percentage of left-handed people is somewhere between five and thirty percent. (A wide range I know). There are people who are ambidextrous but there are no statistics on how many.
5. Why do we dream?
Dreams are steeped in lore and legend. Some believe that a dream has important things to say about our lives, desires, and perhaps even our futures. Others believe that dreams are only random images. What does science say about dreams? Not much.
4. Viking Test Results
In 1976, NASA sent two probes named Viking 1 and Viking 2 to Mars. When they arrived, they performed three experiments. These experiments were supposed to determine if life existed on the Red Planet. One such experiment was called the Labeled Release apparatus, which tested for microbes in the soil.
3. Missing Lithium
You are probably already familiar with lithium because of lithium batteries. However, this element is a perplexing question for scientists. Why? Because there should be a whole lot more of it!
2. Dark Streaks on Mars
During warm seasons, there are dark streaks on the surface of Mars. Once the weather becomes colder, the streaks disappear. It was an exciting observation, as it suggested that there was water on the planet. However, NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter didn’t detect any water. That is, until 2015.
1. Humpback Whale Super Groups
Humpback whales normally congregate in small groups, even in migration. Usually, it’s in groups of 3-4 maximum because they are usually solitary animals. However, in 2017, scientists discovered that these marine behemoths were forming supergroups between twenty to two hundred individuals!!
