In the 1960s, while on secret space missions, astronaut Gordon Cooper made an extraordinary discovery: hundreds of unidentified objects in the shallow waters and reefs in the Caribbean, which he believed to be shipwrecks. Working for decades in secret, he used the information he collected to create a document he thought could lead to unimaginable wealth: a treasure map from space that could potentially uncover the lost fleet of Christopher Columbus.
Before he passed away, Gordon shared his secret with his long-time friend, treasure hunter Darrell Miklos, in the hope that the mystery would finally be solved. In the first season of Cooper’s Treasure, Darrell made a significant discovery using Gordon’s intel; a shipwreck that could be tied back to Christopher Columbus, successfully proving that the space pioneer’s charts were valid.

In Season 2 of Cooper’s Treasure, Darrell has just eight weeks of cash left to uncover another shipwreck he can salvage.
