a lot..i do not remember just how many, but old WW1 and WW2 ammunition, grenades, bombs and mines still kill many people in Europe each year...farmers are mostly at risk.

regarding tanks...when i was in the military in Finland, we often found destroyed tanks littering in the forests, some still with the cannons pointed at eachother like in an eternal, frozen battle...all reddish brown of rust and full of holes caused by the war and corrosion, seeing them puts you to think...

hmmmm, evidently there are hundreds of T34 tanks remaining, they sell for $20,000 to 40,000 USD.

I know where there is a Hasselblad camera that is free for anyone who wants to go and get it.

if I could find just 4 moon rocks and a piece of an alien ship, I could pay my school debt off.

Yeah, some time ago you could find all sort of ammunition here. Sometimes even grenades, helmets and guns. But no tanks!!! :(

How did you know?.

I knew because anyone who was seriously into photography told me about this as I was growing up. Especially the one’s who had a Hasselblad camera.

Now thanks to the Internet. I know a lot more about it, other than the fact that there is one up there for anyone to go and get it. Between 1969 and 1972, a total of 12 Hasselblad Data Cameras were left on the moon. For anyone who wants to go and get one.

This is a link to a good website about the subject. If you do a search about it, you will find a lot of links about it.

I think it would be cool if some rich million or billionaire to make or get someone to make a space robot to go out there and get one or two of them and bring one or two of them back. There are also a lot of other things that were left on the moon other than a dozen Hasselblad cameras.
