Canada rediscovered message-bottle project dating back 50 years, as researchers at the Canada’s Atlantic Research Center explorers old government building.
A project dating back 50 years drove by the Canadian naval force’s research branch has been rediscovered in the wake of being overlooked for quite a long time.
The Naval Research Establishment, which is now called as the Defense Research and Development Canada’s Atlantic Research Center, hurled 1,000 glass bottles into the sea, in 1950. Inside each container was a poll about where each jug was found and a guarantee to send 50 cents if the card was sent back to Halifax.
The objective was to contemplate sea streams. Contingent upon the area and date they were discovered, analysts could evaluate the heading and quality of mid-sea streams. In excess of 140 cards were returned, however they sat in a little cardboard box for about five decades.
She arranged the cards by area, including Canadian regions. They additionally originated from Norway, Portugal, Morocco, England and the Azores. A portion of the cards even offer a preview of history. For instance, bottles achieved the Azores soon after a noteworthy volcanic eruption in 1957.

We have several cards from the Azores, and one of them asks us to send clothing and stuff instead of 50 cents because his family had lost everything in the volcanic eruption.”
Tollefsen added on saying that, “It was just harder to do. People didn’t have smart phones. They couldn’t just tweet that they had found a bottle.”
