Cooper's Treasure

Sundays at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m.


Discovery’s new documentary series tells the incredible story of legendary astronaut Gordon Cooper and the secret treasure map he began from space. In the 1960s, Cooper was one of NASA's original space pioneers, breaking the record for the longest space flight while completing a 122-hour mission. Sent to detect nuclear sites, it was on this mission that Cooper discovered something extraordinary that he would keep secret for more than 40 years, working over that time to create a map he believed could uncover treasure worth billions. Cooper shared his secret with long-time friend Darrell Miklos in the hope that the exploration would continue and the mystery would finally be solved. Now, the one man Cooper trusted has the research and evidence, and combined with Cooper’s map from space, Miklos is setting out with a team of seasoned explorers and researchers to finally accomplish his friend's long-held dream – to uncover the world's greatest treasures.
