Well, now they have done it. Google Earth has mapped an area just teeming with life forms that are unknown to the rest of the Earth. And they will kill ya. Scientist Julian Bayliss was screwing around at the office--research, you know--and he did a flyover of Mozambique using Google Earth. When he noticed a large green patch, he zoomed in, found that it was unexplored and headed straight to Mount Mabu.

Implications - This incident speaks to the magnitude of the increasing capabilities of technology, and satellite technology in particular. This truly mind-blowing software has introduced unlimited possibilities for discoveries that have the potential to do the world social, environmental and scientific good.
