While NASA is known for exploring our solar system and space in general, the space agency is also very thorough when it comes to planet Earth, as satellite images and observations from space have helped archaeologists around the globe to make groundbreaking discoveries.
According to reports, NASA’s technology has helped pinpoint a 10,500-year-old lost ancient city, located beneath thick layers of the forest.
Now, the space agency has helped find the remains of a lost city believed to have been inhabited by ancient Native Americans.
With the help of laser-based “remote-sensing equipment,” scientists were able to zoom onto the ancient site located in Oklahoma, finding what they believe is a 10,500-year-old settlement hidden deep beneath the forest.
Experts believe that this ancient city was inhabited by hunter-gatherers who lived in the area and funneled bison into narrow dead-end gullies before hunting them down.
The ruins of the ancient city were found in the vicinity of the Beaver River in western Oklahoma thanks to LIDAR technology.
