That's No MoonFor as smart as we humans think we are, there sure are a lot of things that we cannot explain. Throughout history, a large number of events, claims, and scientific findings have fallen beyond the current level of human understanding. Some of these unsolved mysteries are completely mind-blowing, and 20 of them are contained in this gallery! Can you figure them out?
First on this list of unsolved mysteries is the origin of Earth's moon. Traditional science argues that the moon was created from a collision of Earth and another smaller planet. However, there are a number of strange phenomena regarding our mysterious moon. Here are a few of these strange facts: the moon is the wrong size for its current orbit, the moon rings like a bell when hit by an object which could signal that it's hollow, metal shavings were found in samples taken by the Apollo crew, and UFO sightings were common on NASA moon missions.
All these phenomena and more point toward the suggestion that the moon is actually an artificially created spaceship. It's a bit far fetched, but throughout history, Astronomers have been discouraged from testing this theory.

Taos Hum
A humming noise usually isn't a big concern, unless you can hear one when it should be completely silent. The mysterious and annoying 'Taos Hum' has plagued residents of certain locations in the United States, UK, and other parts of Europe over the past few decades. The name originates from the small town of Taos, New Mexico, where there is the largest concentration of complaints. Not everyone can hear the humming, but it's consistently described as a low rumble similar to an idling diesel engine. Scientists have been unable to detect the noise, even when using high tech equipment capable of registering VLF (very low frequency) sound waves

The Zodiac Killer
The Zodiac Killer is probably the most infamous serial killer of all time, especially considering that he was never caught. This maniac haunted Northern California in the 1960s after killing at least five victims and injuring two more. He taunted police through an anonymous phone call and a number of encrypted letters. The police suspected a man named Arthur Leigh Allen, but there was not enough evidence to convict him. The murders remain an unsolved case, and parts of Zodiac's letters were never decoded.

The Men in Black
Most people consider the 'Men in Black' movies as pure Hollywood fantasy, but real tales of such men date all the way back to the early 1950s. In the past few decades, a large number of reports have come in regarding strange men dressed in black suits. Just like in the movies, these men visit people that claim to have experienced a close encounter with alien life. They claim to have legitimate credentials, but upon further inspection they do not exist or are listed as dead. Another name for a man in black is a "grinning man" because of their reportedly wide smiles. There are many wild theories regarding the true identities of these men, but there is no evidence to support any of the claims.
