More and more haunted locations are putting up web cams so people can ghost hunt from the comforts of their own home. Now, with a program called Mechanical Turk, you can use satellite technology to find mysterious creatures such as Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster.
The program was used to help find adventurer Steve Fossett after he went missing on Sept. 3rd. Participants used a single satellite image to note any object or wreckage that could be a plane or debris. Even though Fossett is still missing, the search did uncover several unknown small plane wrecks dating all the way back to the 1950s. Maybe they should try searching the Bermuda Triangle. No telling what they will find there. While this technology can be used in such life and death situations as this, a theory states it could be used for other types of searches as well.
It's believed that if such creatures as the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot really do exist they could easily be located and captured. While it won't be much help in heavily wooded areas, it's a good thing Bigfoot have been seen in such places as Nevada, Texas and Utah. With an estimated 6,000 to 10,000 in North America, they should be easy to spot on satellite images. Something similar can be said about lake monsters. On average they are reported to be about 50 feet or longer and surface on a regular basis. Couldn't be too hard to find them.
Whether or not someone actually spots one of these mysterious creatures using Mechanical Turk, it probably won't change the minds of believers, but it only takes one, dead or live, to prove their existence once and for all.
