The dubiously U-formed, 44-square-kilometer (17 mi2) atoll in the Indian Ocean known as Diego Garcia has thick, tropical wildernesses and white sand shorelines.
It was home to 2,000 local Chagossians, until the point when the British government coercively moved them in the vicinity of 1968 and 1973 so the US could assemble a maritime base there in return for Britain’s consent to rent the island, which is of key significance since it’s situated between East Africa, the Middle East, and Southeast Asia, enabling the US to strike areas in both Asia and the Middle East.

Trusting Easter Island would surrender its solution to their inquiry regarding how islanders had once lived there, cultivating a large number of miles from any landmass, a group of analysts from the University of California at Santa Cruz utilized paleogenomic research to decide the hereditary history of the Rapa Nui, as Easter Island’s lost individuals are known.
It was trusted the Rapa Nui interbred with South Americans a long time before Europeans touched base on Easter Island in 1772, yet to the shock of the UC Santa Cruz group, the materials from galleries they tried showed no contact between the Rapa Nui and South Americans previously the entry of Europeans, which prior investigations had, making the group’s finding to some degree questionable.
On the off chance that the consequences of their exploration end up being right, unmistakably the Rapa Nui didn’t have assistance from South Americans in making and moving the island’s overwhelming moai. Unaided, the Rapa Nui cut and moved them themselves.Raiders who captured Rapa Nui to offer as slaves decreased their populace from thousands to scarcely more than 100, and infighting and sickness wiped out the rest, leaving their inception and, up to this point, the formation of their statues, mysteries as puzzling as the island itself.

Isla Bermeja, The Lost Island
On maps dating as far back as the 1700s, Isla Bermeja was flaunted the Yucatan Peninsula’s drift, at a more noteworthy separation than some other island asserted by Mexico. The island was exactly what the nation expected to expand its claim on seaward oil and stop the United States’ infringement on Mexico’s interests in that office. There was only one issue: A 2009 National Autonomous University of Mexico think about closed the island doesn’t exist—in any event not where it should be.
The inquiry group, utilizing submerged detecting gadgets and ethereal observation resources, couldn’t discover the island anyplace in the range in which maps showed it should be.The island should lie 55 nautical miles more distant than Mexico’s 200-nautical-mile regional farthest point. By guaranteeing it, Mexico would broaden its oil claims into the center of the Gulf.

Until the point that it vanished, Isla Bermeja, which apparently measured 80 square kilometers (31 mi2), had been the point from which Mexico’s 200 nautical-mile constrain began. Presently, the Alacranes islands have decided the finish of the nation’s regional points of confinement. Thus, Mexico’s “monetary zone” has been “pointedly diminished.”
