The Earhart mystery
Anew study claims it may have solved the mystery of missing US aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart, who was last seen taking off from Lae in 1937. The study, which adds to the boundless theories of what happened to the aviatrix, claims that bones found on Nikumaroro Island in the Pacific in 1940 are those of Earhart.
Analysis in 1941 concluded that the bones were of a male; however, new science now challenges that theory.
The study was recently published in the journal, Forensic Anthropology.
