Grayson Judge, Staff Writer

The Malaysian prime minister announced on Wednesday that Malaysian flight 370 crashed into the Southern Indian Ocean. This news officially wraps up a three week investigation into the missing plane.


British satellite maker Inmarsat found new evidence of the plane’s flight path after carefully analyzing satellite data.


“[Inmarsat] has been performing calculations on the data using type of analysis never before used in an investigation of this sort and they have been able to shed more light on MH370,”  Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said. Based on the new analysis, Inmarsat and the [British] Accidents Investigation Branch have concluded that MH370 flew along the southern corridor and that it’s last position was in the middle of the Indian Ocean, west of Perth.”


These revelations provide insight into the flight path of flight MH370. They also put an end to an array of conspiracy theories regarding the plane’s disappearance that included alien abduction and US government assassination. However, top officials are not ruling out hijacking from the list of possible causes.


The search, involving US, British, Malaysian, Chinese, and Australian ships and planes continues in order to find the exact location of the fallen plane.

289 people died in the crash.
