A group of Chinese and Turkish explorers have made an interesting discovery - They claim they've found Noah's Ark near the top of Mount Ararat in eastern Turkey.The explorers say the structure has pens for holding animals, and scientists say the wood carbon dates to around the time Noah was afloat.

In the book of Genesis, God told Noah to build a boat to save himself, his family and the world's animals from a flood. After the waters receded, the Bible says the ark came to rest on a mountain.
