Darrell Miklos

Discovery

Darrell Miklos hails from a family of treasure hunters who engaged in several successful underwater historical shipwreck recoveries in the 1960's & 1970's. Darrell became interested in treasure hunting at a very young age while recovering spent booster rockets for NASA's Apollo Program with his father. Beginning in the 1970's through the 1990's Darrell worked on excavating several shipwreck sites off the Florida coast, and later explored areas of the Bahamas and the Caribbean. In 1978 Darrell's father was a guest on The Merv Griffin Show, an episode that also featured Astronaut Gordon Cooper. Darrell and Gordon met that day and later in life the two became friends, shared an office, and went on several treasure-hunting excursions together. Darrell is an NAUI certified diver and Darrell's work has yielded him an invitation to join the American Academy of Underwater Scientists, of which he has been a member for two years. In 2014 Darrell opened a shipwreck recovery business near his home in Southern California called Gemini Marine Exploration where he salvages historic shipwrecks and artifacts.

Today Darrell is working on a project based on his close relationship with the late astronaut Gordon Cooper covering the decades of research they worked on separately and together regarding multiple anomalies recorded by Gordon Cooper on his Mercury 9 Faith 7 space flight in May of 1963.
