Alaskan Man Found Soviet Message in a Bottle from 50 Years Ago


It's not every day you come across a 50-year-old message in a bottle. And it's especially not every day that you come across a message in a bottle sent from a Soviet vessel, especially when you're on U.S. soil. But that's exactly what happened to Alaska native Tyler Ivanoff. 

Tyler went totally viral with a Facebook post in which he posted pictures of the message in a bottle he found. The note was in Russian, so he appealed to social media to help him decipher it. "I found a message in a bottle today," he super nonchalantly wrote on Facebook. "Any friends that are Russian translators out there?"
