Flight MH370 and what the barnacles tell us as a “natural data logger”

March 2024: Jeff Wise, journalist and aviation expert, has written an article summarizing the information that can be gleaned from barnacles found on Flight MH370’s debris. That information, paired with the communications system providing pings onboard turning off raise more unanswered questions. The RNL’s Dr. Humphreys says “after a failed search, you have to recalibrate,” and that “sometimes you preclude the possibility of even looking for evidence because you have very strong priors against it. I think by this point, we’ve been pushed into a corner where we do need to revisit those priors.” For more on the story, read New York Magazine’s The Intelligencer article here.
