    Amelia Earhart Breakthrough?

    It's no guarantee, but scientists are trying to determine whether bone fragments found on Nikumaroro Island could belong to famed pilot Amelia Earhart. The bones were discovered near old makeup, some glass bottles, and shells that had been cut open. Earhart's disappearance in 1937 remains one of the greatest mysteries in history, but researchers say that the bones were dug up near a turtle shell, so it is not certain if the bones belong to her. Scientists at the University of Oklahoma are now attempting to extract DNA from the bone to see if they actually belong to Earhart. Nikumaroro Island is 1,800 miles south of Hawaii and on the same course as Earhart's attempt to fly around the world.
