Is there a better way to search for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370?

The Bluefin has certainly had its share of challenges in its search for Flight 370. Its first two dives were cut short due to technical problems. So far, there has been no sign of the missing jet.

MH370: Undersea search could cost a quarter billion dollars, official says

There are questions as to whether the Bluefin-21 can dive deep enough, and whether it can send back pictures that are clear enough.

So is there anything out there that can do the job better?

Rosa Flores has the story.

    Yes it truly is ridiculous how concerns similar to this one begin looking extremely insignificant when compared to the world events. The next page of the cold war, the actual actual war that erupts, Russia-China fuel deal axis... Nonetheless here we are with our social media dilemmas, – will we ever see the globe has transformed? I'm not declaring that which you write about is inconsequential, Iam declaring that a certain degree of detachment is healthful. Thanks, Sarah @ http://phyto-renew350e.com/

    If you would like to learn more about the different kind of AUVs on the market, check http://www.geo-matching.com/category/id58-auvs-autonomous-underwater-vehicles.html. Filter the models by Maximum depth rating [m] and find out which models could go as deep as 5000m.

    Perhaps we are searching the wrong location. Coincidentaly, MH370, seems to = March 8, 37deg S lat., 100deg E long., approx 950 mi SW of Perth. As good as any other place to look. I believe the remains of flight MH370 will be found on the ocean floor reasonably intact around those co-ordinates
