    Mystery of the Meg

    Mystery of the Meg

    It sounds like something from a very popular dinosaur theme park film series, but the idea of a prehistoric shark still swimming the seas today is one that has popped up every now and then in recent history.

    As recently as 2013, a film – promoted as being a documentary – suggested an animal known as the megalodon could still be alive...

    Is it?

    Dan and Ciaran find out.

    World's Biggest Treasure Hunt

    World's Biggest Treasure Hunt

    Today, we're going on one of the biggest treasure hunts in history. There's something very special about this treasure hunt though.

    It was created by Forrest Fenn – an art dealer and author in the US – and unlike the treasure hunts you might read of in books or see in movies, he was very much alive and giving out clues.

    No pirates here... Just a stash of goodies worth thousands of dollars.

    It's the last episode of Mysteries of Science but don't worry, we'll be back with a new season very soon. 

    Until then... Stay curious.

    Bigfoot

    This is the case of a curious creature known as Bigfoot.

    Could the rumours of a hairy, human-like ape wandering the North American wilderness be true, or are they just folk stories that have been passed down for generations?

    Have you ever felt like you were living through a memory all over again, even though it couldn't have possibly have happened before?

    That feeling is known as deja vu, a French term that means 'already seen'...
