1. MH370 speculation has become excessive recently. Metabunk is not a forum for creating theories by speculation. It's a forum for examining claims, and seeing if they hold up. Please respect this and keep threads on-topic. There are many other forums where speculation is welcome.

    I am surprised there is no talk about the new search effort for MH 370.

    So a US company is going to deploy to search for debris for a scaled profit if they find a certain amount of debris, equipment or not etc.

    A big gamble I’d say.

    But they do have new submersibles that don’t need to be hooked to a mother ship so they do have that going for them.

    This isn’t really a debunk more of a discussion. Do you think this new tech and their idea on new search parameters will result in a find?

    The 90 day time limit will hurt them more than anything, a three year cold trail and a new search area to boot.

    However, as a gamble, Ocean Infinity doesn't need to find MH370 and collect from the Malaysian government to "win" this bet, that's just the jackpot. Finding *anything* new or interesting would be a boon to selling their services - an unknown shipwreck or a brine basin or a whale fall, for example.

    Considering they'd probably get more of their ongoing business from oceanographic research rather than recovery searches like this, even just a portfolio of cool pictures would be a win.
     
  3. I think you damn good point Vader.
     
  4. They must really be trying to get some air time on the news for their new submersibles.
