Help Search for Fossett from Your Computer
You can join the search for NESA President Steve Fossett by using your
computer to study recent satellite images of the area where the adventurer
disappeared September 3. To sign up to help, visit www.mturk.com and follow
the instructions and text link near the top of the page. The site requests
volunteers age 18 or older.
After registering, the Web site will assign you an image of a
278-foot-square section of the 6,000 square miles being searched in Nevada.
After studying the image, you simply click "yes" or "no" as to whether there
is any sign of Fossett's airplane that might warrant further investigation
in that section. Anything larger than two or three feet will appear in the
image, and instructions and examples help you better determine what you are
viewing. The flagged images are passed to the search team coordinating the
flights over the area.
