Hopes are running high that a series of pings picked up over the weekend came from Flight 370's black boxes. The batteries that power those locator beacons are expected to work for about 30 days. That means they may have already fallen silent. Randi Kaye visited a manufacturer that makes the beacons that might be on the doomed plane.
Anderson discusses the search for those pings with David Gallo, who co-led the search for Air France Flight 447 and CNN Safety Analyst David Soucie.
It has been four weeks since Flight 370 vanished. Today there are 13 aircraft and eleven ships searching. There is a new focus on the underwater search. High tech equipment from the U.S. is listening for 'pings' from the plane's black boxes. Randi Kaye takes a look at the high tech tools being used in the search.
Some parts of the Indian Ocean near the Flight 370 search zone reach depths over 20,000 feet. In comparison, Mount Everest is 29,000 feet. What happens if searchers find something, and it is at the bottom of the ocean? Randi Kaye takes a closer look.
Anderson discussed the logistics with David Gallo who co-led the search for Air France Flight 447 and Sylvain Pascaud who was a technical advisor on that same investigation.
Investigators are combing the southern Indian Ocean for any clue about what happened to Flight 370. The plane's black boxes may offer the best chance at solving the mystery. But even if they are found, the black boxes may not have enough information for investigators to piece together the entire puzzle. Randi Kaye takes a closer look.
There are planes in the air and ships on the water and so far there is no sign of Flight 370. But an unmanned submarine could be a powerful tool in finding the missing 777. The REMUS sub was developed by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, and helped locate the wreckage of Air France Flight 447. Randi Kaye got an up close look.
Anderson discussed this with David Gallo, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's Director of Special Projects.
Tonight on AC360 Randi Kaye visits the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to get a first hand look at REMUS. It stands for Remote Environmental Monitoring UnitS, and it was used to help locate the wreckage of Air France Flight 447. It was also used to detect mines in the Persian Gulf and leaks in underwater tunnels. The Navy says it can do the work of up to 16 divers, and go places where they cannot.
Check out a behind the scenes look at Randi's report.
Malaysia Air Flight 370 is not the first high-tech jumbo jet to disappear mid-flight. Investigators have unraveled several previous aviation mysteries. Randi Kaye takes a look at how previous investigations may offer a blueprint for figuring out what happened to Flight 370.
John Hansman is a professor of aeronautics and astronautics at MIT.
The Oscar Pistorius murder trial begins on Monday. The Olympian known to millions as the "Blade Runner" is charged with killing his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp. It's being called South Africa's "trial of the century." Randi Kaye takes a look back at the events that brought Pistorius to this point.
Many of the lawmakers who voted for Arizona's controversial "anti-gay" bill SB1062 have been reluctant to come on AC360 and defend it. Randi Kaye flew to Phoenix to speak to some of them face-to-face.
Rep. Sonny Borrelli laid out a scenario where SB1062 would protect a gay-owned printing company that does not want to do work for a group like the Westboro Baptist Church. NYU Law Professor Kenji Yoshino speaks to Anderson and explains why he disagrees with that comparison.
