A British mathematician believes he’s cracked the mystery behind the location of MH370’s crash site.
The Malaysian Airlines flight vanished on a trip fro Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on Match 8, 2014.
No trace of the jet or its 239 passengers has been found since.
But one professor at Cardiff University, Dr Usama Kadri, says he believes he’s calculated two possible locations of the flight’s wreckage.
One of the cited spots is a few hundred miles from the coast of Madagascar, and the second is said to be further north in the Indian Ocean than where searches have currently taken place.
Using data from the hydrocaustic microphones aboard the aircraft, Kadri believes he’s managed to pick up sound waves made by the plane’s impact from beneath the water.
The results could also indicate MH370 deviated from its designated flight path, but the professor said that 25 minutes of recordings from the microphones have mysteriously disappeared.
Helping to explain his findings, Kadri says that when an object strikes water, waves at the surface continue to get smaller until they can no longer be seen.
However, they don’t disappear entirely. Instead, the waves continue to travel through the water as “acoustic-gravity waves” – or sound waves – for up to several thousand miles.
The waves, Kadri says, carry “vital information on the source of impact, before dissipating.”
When MH370 crashed into the Indian Ocean, three underwater ‘hydrophones’ were active onboard.
One of the microphones, called HA08s, is currently being held at Diego Gracia, a US bomber base in Chagos Archipelago.
It’s this missing data from this microphone that Kadri believes holds the key to solving the mystery.
"The locations of signals found using HA08s data do come with high uncertainty but still require further detailed and careful analysis,” Kadri said.
"The signals we have analysed indicate that the there was a 25-minute shutdown that has gone unexplained by the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organisation, which is responsible for the hydrophone stations.”
Rumours and theories behind the doomed flights disappearance have continued to persist and emerge over the past five years.
Some experts believe that pilot Zaharie Amad Shah deliberated crashed the commercial airliner in an apparent suicide mission.
Analysis of his social media habits revealed a “reckless” man, one psychologist claimed.
Victor Iannello of Independent Group (IG), who’re assisting Australian officials in a search for the wreckage, shares the same theory.
Iannello constructed a flight simulation to better understand the jet’s route.
However, the Malaysian government refuses to speculate on the possibility of Zaharie’s involvement.
