Not only was the late NASA astronaut Gordon Cooper a trailblazer for space exploration (one of the original Mercury Seven), he's the author of what could be the most valuable treasure map ever and the star of an exciting Discovery Channel series "Cooper's Treasure." Apparently, from space he observed some unusual markings in the oceans that he believed were shipwrecks and geotagged dozens of such anomolies.
Decades later, Cooper passed on the secret to friend Darrell Miklos, who verified the map and shocked the treasure-hunting and scientific communities. Did you know they've already made five exciting discoveries based off Cooper's notes? The RightThisMinute gang's so excited about the news we reached out to Darrell himself for an exciting interview.
Catch "Cooper's Treasure" Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on the Discovery Channel and join the world's greatest hunt!
