Thanks to a forensic analysis of bones that were discovered on a remote island in the Pacific the world finally knows what became of Amelia Earhart. She was the first woman to fly alone across the Atlantic Ocean, and might have been the first to fly around the world had her plane not vanished over the Pacific Ocean in 1937.
After decades of mystery surrounding her disappearance, we finally have some answers. During an expedition back in 1940 a group of explorers found several bones however the original analysis concluded that the bones belonged to a male. The case has since been reevaluated and the bones are now deemed to belong to Amelia. The bones were found on the Pacific Island of Nikumaroro.
