Finding Noah's Ark

A team of evangelical Christian explorers believe they've found the remains of Noah's Ark cover in deep beneath snow and volcanic debris on Turkey's Mount Ararat (map). The team claim to have found in 2007 and 2008 seven large wooden compartments buried at 13,000 feet (4,000 meters) above sea level, near the peak of Mount Ararat. They return to the site on 2009 with a film crew. Some archaeologists and historians are seriously taking the information of Noah's Ark been found as they have for the past one.

On its Web site, Noah's Ark Ministries International says the Turkish government plans to apply to the United Nations to put the Noah's Ark discovery site on the UNESCO World Heritage list, a designation given to places of special cultural or physical significance.

A little background behind it,  "prior to the break down of the Soviet Union, Mount Ararat was surrounded by hostile nations. With Iran on one side and Soviet Union on the other, it became very difficult for Western climbers to look for Noah's Ark. Russian radio would broadcast, "American spies wandering in the Ararat area with the pretext of looking for Noah's Ark."" (Mathew 1)

Mount Ararat is located within a military zone and has frequently been closed to climbers for reasons of security. The Ark of Noah still remain mystery due to it location.
