The wreckage of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's plane has been found (via Merde in France).

The mystery of the death of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, who celebrated the mysteries of life so charmingly in "The Little Prince," remains intact. Or nearly. French researchers are due to announce Friday that 60 years after the philosopher-pilot crashed into the Mediterranean Sea, they have found, and identified beyond a doubt, the remains of Saint-Exupéry's Lockheed P-38.

Fascinating! Thanks for reporting something that I never would have heard about. I love Saint-Exupéry.
