It is one of the most enduring mysteries of the 20th century - the fate of American aviator Amelia Earhart who went missing without a trace over the South Pacific.
Now, 75 years on, efforts to solve the riddle have been given fresh impetus after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced a new $500,000 hunt to find her plane.
Clinton was due to meet with historians and scientists from The International Group for Historic (IGHAR) Aircraft Recovery today as they make plans for a trip to suspected crash site in July.

I know Hillary isn't that popular here, but this is kind of cool. A lot of people still would like to know what happened to Amelia Earhardt.

I thought this was already solved in that she had crash landed on an island in the pacific and she and her companion ended up living out their lives there.

I haven't read the story but if she is willing to spend her own money, more power to Her.

Sounds like she's starting a cargo cult.

I know Amelia's plane would have never gotten Cankles off the ground.

No,really don't care. If you do so much, please donate privately. I'm sure thrill seekers and treasure hunters will gladly take on the effort without the taxpayer footing the bill.
