A brave woman, named Amelia Earhart, who lived in the 1930s, attempted to go on a journey around the globe in a plane. At the moment she was flying over the Pacific Ocean, somewhere near the Howland Island, she mysteriously disappeared. Her approximate location was made because before she vanished, she made a radio transmission. The primary assumption was that her plane consumed all the fuel, so she fell and drowned in the ocean. By theories, that the Japanese kidnaped her, or that she worked as an undercover agent for CIA was also loose in the society.
