In a bold move to unravel the mystery of the Loch Ness Monster, Scotland's Loch Ness Centre has set its sights on an unexpected ally: NASA.

The Centre, which has been at the forefront of the hunt for the elusive Nessie for 90 years, is now seeking the assistance of the space agency to further their investigation.

"We are hoping that Nessie hunters around the world will help us reach the people at NASA," stated Aimee Todd, the Centre's marketing manager, as reported by the Independent. "We are hoping to reach them through the power of social media."

Todd elaborated on how NASA could potentially contribute to their mission, stating, "Experts from NASA might have some advanced imaging technology to scan the loch. We would have to sit down and talk to them about how to get it here."

The Centre's appeal to NASA coincides with the 90th anniversary of the first-ever organized surface watch of Loch Ness. This inaugural expedition was led by Sir Edward Mountain from May 30 to June 2, following a report by Aldie Mackay of a "water beast" sighting from the Drumnadrochit hotel.

Since then, the Centre has documented over 1,156 alleged sightings of the creature. Last year, in collaboration with Loch Ness Exploration (LNE), the Centre conducted "one of the biggest searches" ever, mobilizing hundreds of volunteers from around the globe, both in-person and virtually.

The search yielded intriguing results, including peculiar underwater sounds captured by a hydrophone and several potential Nessie sightings. This year, the Centre aims to surpass previous efforts, with general manager Paul Nixon promising the "biggest ever" search.

The Centre is banking on NASA's advanced technology to aid in their quest to "uncover the loch's biggest mysteries." They believe that the agency's interstellar tech could be instrumental in this year's hunt, where volunteers will be tasked with scanning the Loch's 21.78 square mile surface for signs of Nessie.

In addition to surface scanning, the search will also involve boat expeditions and the use of a 60-foot hydrophone to detect any unusual sounds emanating from the Loch's depths. For those unable to physically participate, remote participation is possible via live cameras on the Visit Inverness Loch Ness website.

"This year we are determined to find out more about the elusive Loch Ness Monster," declared Nixon, who is hopeful of recruiting experts in addition to the usual "monster hunters."

The Centre has also reportedly reached out to UK university professors, according to Todd. However, there is no confirmation as to whether they will seek the assistance of "Loch-heed" Martin in the future.

In their quest for answers, the Centre is hopeful that the expertise of NASA can lend some legitimacy to the often-mocked search for Nessie. "We are just hoping for their expert guidance to help with our ongoing quest to get answers," Todd concluded.
