Question: How did they figure out where MH370 crashed and what assumptions were used?
The location of MH370's crash site was determined through a combination of satellite data, surface drift analysis, and underwater search operations. The assumptions that were made during the search and investigation process including the understanding that the plane likely went down in the southern Indian Ocean, based on the analysis of satellite data and modeling of the plane's flight path. Additionally, oceanographers and drift modeling experts analyzed debris that was found to understand the pattern of how objects drift in the ocean and thereby narrow down the search area. Finally, underwater search operations were conducted using sophisticated search and mapping technologies, focusing on areas that were considered the most likely to hold the wreckage. It's important to note that while the investigation has provided some level of information on the plane's disappearance, many questions remain unanswered.
