Scientists launch fresh expedition in search of U.S. pilot Amelia Earhart
Scientists on Tuesday announced a new phase in the search to resolve the disappearance of Amelia Earhart, saying fresh evidence from a remote Pacific island may hold clues to the fate of the renowned U.S. pilot who vanished in 1937 while attempting to circle the globe.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined scientists and aviation archaeologists to unveil the expedition, which will set out from Honolulu in July to probe underwater areas around the Phoenix Islands in Kiribati where they believe Earhart may have crashed 75 years ago.

“When she took off on that historic journey she carried the aspirations of our entire country with her,” Clinton said, calling Earhart one of the “fearless optimists” who defined 20th century America.

“Even if you do not find what you seek, there is great honour and possibility in the search itself,” Clinton said. (Photos: MCT/AFP/Getty Images)
