1. Stephen King was not writing fiction when he wrote Langolieers

On a more serious answer, they are now going to use the sensors from the UN Nuclear Agency to see if there was a high altitude explosion.

3. But if there was a high altitude shouldn't there be debris, or at least body

parts by now?

7. Yeah ...

but that debris (and body parts) would likely be really, really small and spread over a really, really large area.

8. Yep the higher the altitude if there was an explosion up there

the wider the field of debris but there should be something to see by now - shaking head.
I can't imagine what this means for those families - just the wait.

10. Depends on how badly they vaporized

if they were shredded into really small parts...

I just hope it does not remain a mystery for ever.

There is also a claim of an internal Chinese group claiming responsibility and being quickly dismissed

5. No, the jungle, in a petulant fury, leaped up and swallowed the plane!

The jury's still out on this theory.

9. Not to make light of a terrible situation, but here's what happened.

As you know, the faster you go, the more your body shortens (assuming you are going head first, or feet first.) Also, the faster you go, the slower time passes-- for YOU. Therefore, if you go fast enough, you shorten to an infinitesimal spec and can go back in time.
So, that plane is really sittin' right in front of the gate from which it left. It's just that nobody can see it.

12. More like Stephen Hawking on mescaline!



It made sense when we were children. Not so much now.

13. I'm not sure how to take that. :>))

It is true, however, that the faster you go, your body will shorten in that direction.
And it is also true, that the faster you go, the slower time passes for you.
If there were twin brothers on earth, and one of them were able to travel into 'space' near the speed of light for some length of time, when he came back the brother who stayed on earth would have aged more than the brother who went on the trip.

Would I kid you about that?

14. It took 5 days to find AF447 that crashed on its flight path. MH370 may be off its path.

15. I remember that so well

Can't believe it's happening again.
