The ironic thing about this is that 'Nessie' was under TIGHARS nose for ages!

When I said in my previous post that "the event will be streamed live by the State Department at 9:00 AM EDT from Washingnton, D.C.," what I had hoped to communicate was that people can watch the event on their computers by clicking on the words, "streamed live by the State Department at 9:00 AM EDT from Washingnton, D.C.," at 9:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time.

If you happen not to live in the Eastern time zone for the United States, you need to do a time zone calculation to find out when the event will be streaming live on the internet.  If you are in the same time zone as London, yes, it will be 1:00 PM.  If you are in the time zone east or west of London, it will be 2:00 PM or 12 noon.

"The State Department said it is "working closely" with Mr. Ballard in what will be a sophisticated sonar search."

So Ballard is getting involved. Am I wrong in sensing that this isn't necessarily a good thing? There's a lot of personality to deal with there.

I had the pleaseure of meeting Dr. Ballard once and found him to be very personable and down to earth. He didn't come across as having any type of ego at all. Just someone who truly loves the ocean and discovering the secrets that it holds. The only part of this that I am not thrilled about is the anti-climatic feeling that the discovery/recovery of conclusive proof will bring. Kind of like when you are a kid and have opened the last present on Christmas morning. You may have gotten something really neat, but there is still a let down feeling that it's over. The good part of this is that once this mystery is resolved and TIGHAR's theory and methodology proven sound, it might be easier to fund other searches. What's next?

Saw news on front page of MSN this morning..

Well atleast couple high place people in this field appear to think all the hard work all of you all done over the years has been correct. Or atleast your theory is the best one out there..

Hey I think this worth a good thank's to all of you invested your money and time into this effort..

The live press conference is over.  A replay of the video feed is supposed to become available eventually.

Congratulations Ric, what a coup!  I got up very early to watch the presentation. Good luck, I hope you find the plane.

Two tidbits from the press conference via Fox News:

1. "On July 2, 75 years to the day after Earhart was last heard from, Gillespie will depart Honolulu on a University of Hawaii research vessel to try to find that plane in the deep waters off a flat reef on Nikumaroro."

I believe that the ship is the Ka`imikai-o-Kanaloa, affectionately and thankfully known to English speakers as the "KoK."  More details from U of H on the KoK.

2. The privately funded effort will use robotic submarines from Phoenix International, the U.S. Navy's primary contractor for deep ocean search and recovery, to comb the area. The Discovery Channel will film the exploration for a TV presentation, Gillespie said.
