Google Remembers Amelia Earhart

Earhart Google Doodle
I got a little intrigued by Google Doodle today. It is an old plane with a woman at the side and it says that it is the birthday of Amelia Earhart.

Who is Amelia Earhart anyway?

Amelia Earhart is the first woman aviator who has flown across the Atlantic Ocean. She has received the Distinguished Flying Cross for this achievement. She has gained celebrity status after this and has become a famous endorser as the “Queen of the Air”. Several promotional products have appeared carrying the Earhart name. She has become a best selling author as well.

However, on July 2, 1937, Earhart along with her flight companion Fred Noonan has disappeared somewhere in Central Pacific Ocean. They have been attempting to fly across the globe.

Their disappearance had been a celebrated mystery up to this date. Perhaps, an unquenchable curiosity over what actually transpired especially to a celebrity such as Earhart. Many theories and speculations have risen after her disappearance. Stories like those that she has been spying against the Japanese and that her plane has crashed somewhere in Saipan and Japanese soldiers have executed them after captivity; that she has survived the crash and has assumed a new identity afterwards but none have had shown clear evidence about Earhart’s fatal crash and disappearance.
