DESCRIPTION:
(from Discovery's press release, April 2018) Darrell Miklos, treasure hunter by trade and by birth, sets out once again to unearth sunken riches in an all-new season of COOPER'S TREASURE. Armed with a treasure map created in secret over 50 years ago by NASA astronaut Gordon Cooper, Darrell sets out to the blue waters of the Bahamas to track down the whereabouts of 11 wreck sites that Cooper had found and catalogued as having tons of silver, gold and other priceless treasures. COOPER'S TREASURE returns to Discovery Channel this summer. Considered one of NASA's original space pioneers, Gordon "Gordo" Cooper discovered troves of information about what lies on Earth's sea floors while orbiting the planet in the 1960s. Among his findings were more than 100 anomalies in the Caribbean, which he secretly transcribed onto a map that he believed could reveal vast amounts of treasure. Before his passing, Gordon shared this secret with long-time friend Darrell Miklos in the hopes his exploration would continue, and ultimately uncover treasures of the old world. Last season, Miklos located a shipwreck tied to Christopher Columbus using Cooper's intel. But within hours of finding the wreckage, a rival treasure hunter made a competing claim and the government shut down the hunt, tying up Miklos's search for years. Despite this disappointment, Darrell's discovery was proof that the maps could unearth riches. Now, Darrell has just eight weeks of cash left to uncover another shipwreck that he can salvage. After finding a box of photos of the Bahamas and a list of eleven wreck sites that Gordon tracked, Darrell sets out with new clues and modern equipment to decipher this brand-new map, leading him to what could be the richest wreck of his career. The stakes are high and the money is low, and if the evidence doesn't bring him to a motherlode discovery, Darrell's treasure hunting career could be over forever.
