With the missing Malaysia Air B-777 in mind: Wouldn't BOINC be a perfect platform to help in analysing terrabytes of satelite images to search for missing objects (in this case an airplane but by extension every large missing object such as schips, planes, etc.)?

Any success would help in promoting all other BOINC projects.

If there were software designed to do that sort of analysis, it could probably be adapted to run on the BOINC platform.
