A strange anomaly lies near the rugged volcanic rock on the northwest corner of Mount Ararat. At 15,300 feet above sea level, the anomaly is mostly buried under a permanent glacier. Many people believe that it is Noah’s Ark.
Now, three high-tech companies have joined up to investigate the 980 foot feature for evidence that it may be the remains of Noah’s Ark.
GeoEye, INTA Space Turk and the Satellite Imaging Corporation have melded their technologies for the investigation. Making use of IKONOS satellite imaging data, in 2002, Satellite Imaging Corp. created a 3D terrain model of the so-callled “Mt. Ararat anomoly”.
“To be best of my knowledge, to date, only 2D satellite missions had been flown over the anomaly, not stereo missions,” explained Porcher Taylor, an associate professor at the University of Richmond’s School of Continuing Studies, in a press release. (more…)
