Maya, a 3,000-year-old "highway" discovered in the middle of the forest

A literally unbelievable discovery comes from South America, and specifically from the territories that once belonged to the Mayas, one of the three great pre-Columbian civilisations along with the Incas (Peru) and Aztecs (Mexico). In the territory between present-day Guatemala and Mexico, in fact, a huge network of highways has been discovered.The complex of roads and bridges dates back as far as 3000 years, and the team of scientists who made the discovery compared it in importance to the discovery of the Egyptian pyramids. It is estimated that the 'highway' continues for hundreds of kilometres and intersects some 417 ancient Maya settlements.For this discovery, a new technology called lidar was used, an advanced type of radar that reveals presences hidden by dense vegetation, resulting in 3D reconstructive images.

Saddam Hussein's mega yacht: from most luxurious jewel in the sea to wreck used for picnics

Upside down in a river in southern Iraq lies the rusting wreck of a yacht that had belonged to Saddam Hussein. The Al Mansur was a symbol of Saddam's wealth and power when it was built in the 1980s. Today it is visited by tourists and fishermen who climb aboard the wreck to picnic and drink tea.It is a 120-metre megayacht designed for ocean voyages. Built by the former Wärtsila shipyard in Finland, it was delivered in 1983. In 2003, a few weeks before the US invasion, Saddam himself ordered the yacht to be transferred to the port of Basra to protect it from attack. However, it was a vain attempt because Al Mansur was heavily bombed during a raid on 27 March 2003. Since then, the yacht fell into disgrace and slowly began to capsize on its side.
