Anti-Freckle Cream and Radio Signals? Researchers Make Major Amelia Earhart Discoveries on Remote Island
“What really happened to Amelia Earhart?” has become an iconic question since the woman’s fateful disappearance in 1937, during her record attempt to fly around the world at the equator.
Some have theorized that she was really a spy, and defected before the war. Others suspect she crashed in the ocean, while still more hold out hope that she and her navigator Fred Noonan somehow managed to survive on a remote island.
2012 has revealed for enthusiasts a tentative storyline, before researchers begin the final push to search for her aircraft with high-tech underwater equipment next July.
The most recent developments are a seemingly appropriate juxtaposition of the woman herself– both beautiful, and intelligent.
On Wednesday, researchers from The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR) released news that a jar of anti-freckle cream was recovered on an uninhabited island in the southwestern Pacific Republic of Kiribati and, according to one of the researchers, “It’s well documented Amelia had freckles and disliked having them.”
