The Needle In the Haystack

For 77 years, researchers and historians have been fascinated by the disappearance of Amelia Earhart’s plane, which disappeared (crashed) during her attempt to fly around the world back in 1937. It was reported today on History.com that researchers may have found the remains of her plane based on some ‘sonar anomalies’ that they observed when researching the area that has been narrowed down as the site via evidence collected over the years. The image above shows the area they have been researching along with the different items that have been detailed over the years. The Discover News site has a slideshow with more details.

I remember watching Leonard Nemoy’s “In Search Of…” as a kid and seeing the episode about her story. What an awesome discovery if this is it.
