A new search for the wreckage of Amelia Earhart's plane will launch in 2014. Earhart, a famed aviator, vanished in 1937 along with her navigator Fred Noonan. The two were attempting a flight around the world, and were last seen in Lae, New Guinea. According to the International Group For Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR), Earhart and Noonan may have survived for days or weeks after landing on the reef surrounding Nikumaroro, once known as Gardner Island. Among the evidence were post-crash distress calls thought to have been sent by the stranded aviators. (LiveScience)
