SEARCHER mentions this in another thread but I thought this is a topic that could use further "fleshing out".
Are there members here that are watching this show on the DISCOVERY CHANNEL ?

What I find interesting is the basis of the story: Gordon Cooper's spaceflight in the Mercury capsule was during the lead up to the Cuban Missile Crisis. The Defense Department had designed an over gown metal detector for the detection of high levels of metal down on the Earth's surface. Out to sea ship travel and on the ground where the readings could mean military construction of missile sites. Gordon Cooper was also a TREASURE HUNTING BUFF and soon figured out the DoD machine would hit on possible sunken treasure sites. While orbiting Cooper created maps for the DoD and himself with codes that could narrow down the search fields.
Cooper kept his maps and codes of possible treasure sites while the machine and the rest went back to the DoD.
According to the "star" of the show One of Cooper's Maps and Codes actually identified the Nuestra Señora de Atocha years before being found by Mel Fisher & crew.

So far this past episode the "star' traveled to Spain to get manifests of Columbus's PINTA that sank on it second trip coming out of the Turks and Caicos Islands. His money backers and a local partner have gotten Salvage Permits to search a specific reef area that Gordon's Maps indicated as an anomaly.

It has been interesting so far with the search and video history snippets of Gordon Cooper.
