Scientists, using DNA, will try again to find the Loch Ness monster

Quote:
For years, Nessie has evaded the good work of explorers and scientists, all of whom have failed to find conclusive evidence the supposed monster living in Scotland's Loch Ness ever existed.

Yet, a global group of scientists will take another stab at it, reports The Guardian. This time they'll comb the water for environmental DNA, which they hope will give them a yea or nay as to whether there is any truth behind the existence of the Loch Ness Monster.

Environmental DNA, also known as eDNA, is often used by scientists in researching sea creatures. Fish and other animals, reports Reuters, shed feathers, feces and urine, leaving behind a trail of DNA clues.

Probably the History Channel. This is like that show, "The Hunt for the Zodiac Killer," which I tried to tease eastisbest about, but I guess he didn't watch it because he never responded. In it, a team of government and academic experts come together to feed the Zodiac's coded letters and all other data from the investigation into a supercomputer to see if 'AI' can uncover the killer's identity. Nothing conclusive yet, but more episodes are to air at a later date.

They would literally lose their sht over splinters of wood, then look at it and say "man sure looks like a Viking made it".

Did they ever find anything to justify the cost?

I don't think that believers in Big Foot, the Loch Ness Monster, Yetis, etc., understand that there must be a lot of Big Feet, Monsters, etc., to perpetuate the species, or else the Big Feet, etc., must be immortal, which is biologically impossible.
