    Found: World’s Oldest Message in a Bottle, Part of 1914 Citizen-Science Experiment

    A Scottish fisherman has found the world’s oldest message in a bottle, the Guinness Book of World Records confirmed last week. It is 98 years old, and was cast into the ocean by Captain C.H. Hunter, a scientist at the Glasgow School of Navigation, who was studying the currents in the North Sea.

    The bottle was one of 1,890 bottles released on June 10, 1914, and the 315th to be entered into Captain Brown’s log, which is still kept and updated by Marine Scotland Science in Aberdeen.
