Aviadora desaparecida en 1937:
Tres fragmentos óseos hallados en una isla desierta del Pacífico Sur están siendo analizados para determinar si pertenecen a la famosa aviadora Amelia Earhart, una prueba que podría demostrar si murió como náufraga después de fracasar en su intento de 1937 de ser la primera mujer en dar la vuelta al mundo piloteando un avión. Los científicos esperan extraer ADN de los huesos, que fueron hallados este año por un equipo de la U. de Delaware dedicado a la recuperación de aviones históricos.
Los restos de hueso descubiertos por un equipo de científicos en la isla Nikumaroro, en el Pacífico Sur, corresponderían a un dedo humano.

An extraordinary life of adventure, celebrity and continuing mystery comes to light in "Amelia," a vast, thrilling account of legendary aviation pioneer Amelia Earhart. After becoming the first woman to fly across the Atlantic, Amelia was thrust into a new role as America's sweetheart -- the legendary "goddess of light," known for her bold, larger-than-life charisma. Yet, even with her global fame solidified, her belief in flirting with danger and standing up as her own, outspoken woman never changed. She was an inspiration to people everywhere, from First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt to the men closest to her heart: her husband, promoter and publishing magnate George P. Putnam, and her long time friend and lover, pilot Gene Vidal. In the summer of 1937, Amelia set off on her most daunting mission yet: a solo flight around the world that she and George both anxiously foresaw as destined, whatever the outcome, to become one of the most talked-about journeys in history.

The most famous–and infamous–female flier in history has got to be none other than Amelia Earhart, and what better way to celebrate her life than with a biopic featuring Hilary Swank, Richard Gere, and upcoming Alice in Wonderland Mia Wasikowska.
Amelia isn't just about Earhart's flying career, and of course the final mission in which she went out and was never seen again, but also on her early life and her relationship with her husband, George Putnam. Check out the trailer.
Due to arrive in theatres this October, Amelia might be a fair bet for some golden statues later in the year. But will the movie itself be worthwhile? File your flight plan to see it or veer off in the comments section below, and thanks for watching!
