Watch a Missing Chapter of Doctor Who's History Get Brought Back to Life in This Incredible Retro Remake

EXCERPT: . . . Broadcast on YouTube to be timed down to the minute the original episode would’ve aired in the UK 54 years ago today, the remake—spearheaded by students and teachers at the University of Central Lancashire—is a shot-for-shot recreation of “Mission to the Unknown,” not just the only standalone story in classic Doctor Who history, but one of the 97 episodes from the 1960s era of the show still absent from the BBC’s archives.

It’s a precursor to the 12-episode serial “The Daleks’ Master Plan,” most of which is also lost to the BBC’s old policy of archive junking; just three of its episodes remain in the vaults today. “Mission” follows the story of Space Security Agent Marc Cory. After crash landing, Cory has to brave killer Varga plants and deadly Dalek patrols on the planet Kembel in an attempt to warn Earth that the Daleks are planning their most malicious plan yet: unifying the villainous tyrants of seven galaxies in a plot to conquer the entire universe, starting with the eradication of Earth...

The Weird History of Unidentified Submerged Objects

EXCERPT: . . . In 1970, biologist Ivan Sanderson published the book Invisible Residents. Sanderson, a noted student of unusual phenomena, devoted the book to sightings of what were later called Unidentified Submerged Objects, or USOs. USOs are defined as unknown craft that are sighted in the water, sighted rising up out of the water, or diving into the water. Sanderson catalogued scores of reports of USOs [...descriptions of the accounts over the decades, see article...] The National UFO Recording Center maintains a database of sightings reported to the NUFORC, both by email and hotline. There are many reports of UFO-type objects seen coming out of or going into the ocean.

[...] This past weekend, former U.S. Navy Commander David Fravor was a guest on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast. Fravor, who was the subject of a New York Times article about his 2004 UFO sighting, discussed a spooky new sighting a fellow pilot revealed to him after they were both out of the Navy. ... In the first incident, the pilot saw a “dark mass” underwater as he and his team retrieved a flying practice drone. ... In the pilot’s second sighting, a practice torpedo that the pilot was sent to recover was “sucked down” into the depths of the ocean in the presence of a similar underwater object. The torpedo was never seen again.

Elsewhere in the interview, Fravor reveals that a 79-year-old woman contacted him after his sighting went public. The woman explained that her father, a naval officer, was at one time based at the naval station in San Francisco in the 1950s. When she was a child, her father showed her a telegram that stated unidentified objects had been sighted going in and out of the water at a now forgotten set of latitude and longitude coordinates. The woman’s father told her, “We get these all the time, and it’s always in the same area.” (MORE - details)
