Google indexed Nessie?
The origin of services like Google Earth and Streetview lies in the "20% rule" that Google employees have. When they first thought of these kind of services they probably hadn't foreseen the impact it could have.
The news was 'broken' last Wednesday by the English tabloid The Sun who claim the image taken from Google Earth could be the "exclusive proof that the Loch Ness Monster exists." The 'sighting'of Nessie was apparently made by a Jason Cooke.
To see the object, enter co-ordinates Latitude 57°12'52.13"N, Longitude 4°34'14.16"W in Google Earth.
This sighting is one of many in the last centuries when it comes to the Lochness Monster. The last 'sighting' was in 2007 when a 55-year-old lab technician made a video of a fast moving object.
There has never been any proof however and though Google has now added to the number of sightings this will not be considered proof either. Even though Adrian Shine of the Loch Ness Project, said: "This is really intriguing. It needs further study."
