We all know that Gordon Cooper was one of the original Mercury series astronauts, but did you know that he had a secret passion? It seems Gordon Cooper was also a want-to-be treasure hunter. I know, you’re going to say big deal, a lot of people would like to hunt for sunken treasure.
Well that may be true, but how many of them had the chance to view the “graveyard of ships” from the unobstructed vantage point of space? Only one that I know of, Gordon Cooper. It is just now coming to light that during his time in space, Cooper used some of his time to look for anomalies that he thought were shipwrecks in the Caribbean. Now that information that he kept secret for over 40 years is coming to light.
