The Guinness Book of World Records has confirmed that the message in a bottle found by a Scottish fisherman is the oldest ever found -98 years after it was tossed into the ocean. Captain C. Hunter Brown threw it into the ocean along with 1,890 other bottles on June 10, 1914. Brown was studying ocean currents for the Glasgow School of Navigation. So far, 315 of those bottles have been found and logged. Although the scientist Brown is gone, the research is an ongoing project of Marine Scotland Science in Aberdeen.
