The hunt for evidence that a 980-foot long feature on Mt. Ararat in Turkey might be the remains of Noah’s Ark has taken on a new dimension, quite literally.
Satellite Imaging Corporation of Houston, Texas has created a 3D terrain model of the so-called “Mt. Ararat anomaly” – making use of stereo IKONOS satellite image data to create a flyover of the site in remote northeastern Turkey.
The high-tech effort involves GeoEye, INTA Space Turk, along with the talents of Satellite Imaging Corporation.
Porcher Taylor, an associate professor at the University of Richmond’s School of Continuing Studies, has been at the forefront of utilizing Earth orbiting remote sensing spacecraft to study the Ararat Anomaly from on-high. In a press statement, he explained: “To be best of my knowledge, to date, only 2D satellite missions had been flown over the anomaly, not stereo missions.”
Taylor notes that GeoEye’s IKONOS satellite serves as a “space-based Indiana Jones” over the anomaly. Furthermore, the GeoEye-1 — to be launched early next year — will make the controversial anomaly almost twice as visible due to that spacecraft’s ultra-powerful 0.4 meter resolution.
The purported anomaly lies surrounded by rugged strato-volcanic rock at the northwestern corner of Mt. Ararat’s western plateau. It sits mostly buried underneath a permanent glacier and drew attention because of its relatively smooth surface texture and unusual physical composition, according to some interpretations. The site occupied by the anomaly is located at 15,300 feet above sea level.

So has a 5000 year old barge been found atop the mountains of Ararat? Make sure to watch the digital Quicktime 3D animation of the anomalous features. Confused about what to look for? Here is some help.
Do you see an ark there? The conservative Christian folks over at HotAir, where I read the weekly Blogging the Quran series, are quick to take this as another historical verification of God’s Word! They are so far quite excited about it. I am too tired right now to make sensible replies – but I did anyway.
