Science can be glorious. It can bring clarity to a chaotic world. Scientists make discoveries that change the way we live. But sometimes, scientific discoveries are by nature counterintuitive and so extraordinary or unexpected. Here are Ten Astonishing New Discoveries That Could Change Human History.

1. Stone Henge

The famed StoneHenge is a prehistoric monument located in Wiltshire, England. It is a ring of erect boulders, set within an elaborate complex of Neolithic and Bronze age monuments including hundreds of burial mounds. Recently, archaeological evidence including animal bones, flint tools, and evidence of combustion suggests that hunters may have been inhabiting the nearby area prior to the Stone Henge. The remains of thousands of Flint tool fragments and bones of wild aurochs, a type of giant cow now extinct, indicate that the area near Stone Henge may have been an auroch migration route. This may have later become an ancient feasting site that drew people together from across different cultures in the region. This was asserted by the lead researcher David Jacques of the Open University, UK. This evidence has compelled historians to reconsider their past conclusions on the the famous historical site.

2. Area 51

This US Air Force facility is the most famous secret military installation in the world rumored to have hosted encounters with ET beings. A lot of data was credited as disinformation as there was no government support that verified the speculations. The government has now admitted to the existence of the facility that is dedicated to military testing and training, however there’s no indication that the base was used for ET research. Previous witness allegations are now being revaluated.

3. Buddha’s Birthday

Buddha’s age and his actual birthdate had remained shrouded in mystery. A recent investigation at a suspected birthplace of the holy master also known as Siddhartha Gautama, has indicated that he may have been born around 563 BC. The investigated site in Nepal recently has strongly suggested that Buddha most likely had lived in the 6th century when a timber structure under a brick temple was discovered and evaluated.

4. Ardi

In the period of past two decades, archaeological investigation has unearthed what is claimed to be the oldest skeleton on earth and attempted to bridge the missing link to our human evolution chain. The oldest human skeleton is estimated to be 4.4 million years old and was discovered in 1994. The skeleton was named “Ardi” and now believed to be man’s oldest ancestor. It’s anatomy is unlike any, since it doesn’t appear to be that of a human or even a chimp, putting our scientists in a fix and compelling them to reconsider the history of our origin.

5. The Discovery of Australia

Captain James Cook, a renown British explorer, navigator and pioneer of his time, is credited to have discovered Australia in 1770. This however has been brought to question, after a set of coins found in 1944 by Maurie Isenberg, later sent to museum in 1979, were carefully analyzed to reveal that the coins date back to the year 900-1300, implying that James Cook may not have been the first to discover the continent.

6. Water presence in Outer Space

Ever since space exploration began, many have theorized on how life can be made sustainable on other planets. In the last few decades, NASA has launched satellites and rovers to scan the planetary surface of Mars. The discovery of water on the surface of Mars, in April 2015, not only cleared this doubt of its existence but also excitingly indicated that other planetary surfaces could be inhabited soon.

7. James Town

Jamestown was the first English settlement in North America. The settlers had to face severe winter spells and had to commit to drastic measures in order to ensure survival. One of which was the dreadful act of cannibalism. Although there is meagre historical and archeological data that supports the evidence of such acts taking place. In 2008, William Kelso and his team had discovered a female skull, which was named Jane, amongst other animal carcasses like horses and pigs that may have been fed upon to avoid starvation. This may imply that early settlers may have opted cannibalism to survive.

8. Eris

It was unclear to many why Pluto was assigned the term of a dwarf planet. In 2005, with the discovery of the dwarf planet named Eris which was found to be bigger than Pluto. The scientists at the International Astronomical Union had to actually redefine the concept of a planet. And now ironically, some of those scientists are pleading to have Pluto assigned to the category of Planet again.

9. Gobleki Tepe

It was believed for centuries that the Stone Henge was the site of the world’s oldest civilization. However in the 1960′s Gobleki Tepe, a civilization in the mountains was discovered. Originally thought to be a medieval graveyard, but in 2008, counter-indicative evidence of several large boulders was discovered by Klaus Schmidt. These large stones date back to 11,000 years and were probably designed by early men before the tool age.

10. Richard The II

For centuries, the aftermath of the reign of King Richard III in England from 1438-1485, was an elusive mystery. After his death at the battle of Bosworth field, but the whereabouts of his remains were unknown until 2012 when they were recovered in a remote location in Leicester. Owing to this discovery, historians and archaeologists were conclusively able to figure King Richard’s cause of death as well as gather valuable genetic data.
