Next Episode of Cooper's Treasure is
In the 1960s, the "Original 7" astronauts were both rock stars and daredevils. With movie star looks and a penchant for sports cars, Gordon Cooper was the youngest and the flashiest of the bunch. As a space pioneer, he first took orbit in Mercury-Atlas 9, setting a record that still holds today for the longest solo space flight in US history. During one of his key missions, while Cooper claimed to be scouring the globe for nuclear sites, he actually discovered something else: shipwrecks. Working for decades in secret, using the information he collected while orbiting the Earth, Cooper created a document that he thought could lead to unimaginable wealth – a treasure map from space. Uncover the truth – and the treasure – when Cooper's Treasure premieres on the Discovery Channel. Before passing away, Cooper shared his secret with long-time friend Darrell Miklos with the hope that his exploration would continue and the treasure would ultimately be found. Miklos is now setting out on a personal quest to fulfill the legacy of his lost mentor, once and for all realizing Cooper's long-held dream and proving to the world that the mysterious documents hold the key for a new generation of explorers.
Darrell and Crew make the first big discovery of the expedition as they follow new clues and Gordon Cooper's Treasure Map From Space to an area known as the "holy grail" of colonial era shipwrecks in the Bahamas.
Darrell discovers a 1700s-era cannon which sends him on a mission to make a debris path and determine the ship's origin. He reveals a letter from Gordon's files detailing the find of a 16th century English wreck with a connection to Sir Francis Drake.
Darrell zeroes in on a shipwreck linked to Gordo's list, but learns they are on the radar of some dangerous locals. He leads his team to an area called "the shallows" where they battle wind and waves that have claimed a century's worth of ships.
After finding evidence of a 1700s era lifeboat near shore, Darrell and the team discover the shipwreck it came from. But an unexpected tragedy throws the entire expedition off course, leaving Darrell and his team scrambling to recover.
Darrell narrows his sights on a multi-million dollar wreck tied to Sir Francis Drake, as he and his team race to locate a treacherous area identified on Gordon Cooper's map as Dragon's Teeth.
On a mysterious island, Darrell and the team discover valuable clues that lead them closer in the hunt to a 500-year-old shipwreck.
A dangerous storm threatens to shut down the operation just as Darrell and team discover gold ore in the remains of an old wreck.
Leading to one of the richest finds in Darrell's career, the team discovers ornate artifacts that indicate the location of a 16th century captain's quarters.
