What started as a vast search of practically an entire quarter of the globe is now focused on a relatively small section of the expansive Indian Ocean’s depths — and a small robotic submarine gives new hope for finding the wreckage of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, which disappeared on March 8 with its 239 passengers and crew. The U.S. Navy’s sophisticated Bluefin-21 was launched Monday from the Australian navy ship Ocean Shield to search a targeted section of the ocean floor some 2.8 miles beneath the ocean’s surface, but AUV was only able to complete six out of 16 scheduled hours of searching on its first run.
