Satellite to Search for Noah's Ark

After past expeditions failed to conclusively prove the existence of Noah's Ark, high technology is poised to make a new attempt. QuickBird 2 satellite is scheduled to launch Oct. 18. If successfully orbited, it will become the world's highest-resolution commercial satellite-capable of focusing on objects as small as 20 inches across.

The satellite's programmers plan to examine a site on the other side of 17,000-foot Mount Ararat from previous on-the-ground searches. "This is a unique and unexplored site on the mountain," said a spokesman. Nearly 99 percent of all Ark hunters, researchers and expeditions to Ararat have been to the Ahora Gorge. That is on the other side of the mountain, he said.
