Find Steve Fossett! (0 Comments) (link)
 Wednesday, 12-September-2007  14:39:20 (GMT +10) - by Agg

Just wandered across this in the forums, and it's one of the oddest technological ideas I've ever seen, but it's also pretty cool. Adventurer Steve Fossett has been missing for several days after a plane he was flying over Nevada failed to return. Where technology comes in is that Google Earth have taken up-to-date photos of the region and, via Amazon's Mechanical Turk, people are being asked to volunteer some time to scan through images looking for possible crash sites. Apparently 6 other lost aircraft have been found already, but not Steve's. Discussion here in the forums. Here's hoping we can find Steve before this becomes his last adventure.
