Google pays tribute to Amelia Mary Earhart with a Google Doodle on her 115th birthday
Google, the search engine giant, has dedicated a doodle to Amelia Mary Earhart today on the occasion of her 115th birthday. Amelia was an American author and an Aviation enthusiast. Amelia was the first aviatrix to fly across the Atlantic Ocean alone.
Born on 24 July 1897, Atchinson, Kansas, she was extremely interested in adventures. Her interest in aviation begun young when she was 10 years old at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines.
She took classes for flying and also had a complete makeover to look like an aviatrix.
She set a world record on 22 October, 1922 while flying her Airster at 14,000 feet which was an extremely rare incident among the female pilots then.
She has several accomplishments in the aviation field but is remembered most for her solo flight, the first ever by any woman, against the Atlantic Ocean without stopping.
Her death baffles the investigators even today and there are many theories trying to explain it. On the 2nd of July, Earhart and her navigator Noonan started to Howland Island from Lae but they were nowhere to be spotted after they crossed Nukumanu Islands. The mysterious disappearance was tried to be unraveled but all efforts were in vain. Earhart was legally declared dead on 5th January, 1939 after her prolonged absence was unanswerable.
