The dramatic mystery furiously spread through various media sources, which caused people to panic and wonder what would come next. The media went crazy with different hypotheses that could have caused the mysterious blunder. In the article “Missing Malaysia plane: Co-pilot 'spoke last words'”, it talks about the conspiracies that people thought caused the disappearance immediately after they heard about the missing plane, and even recently, about a year after the crisis. The article says that the most popular conspiracy of the flight’s disappearance, besides crashing into the vast Indian Ocean, was that the flight was hijacked by terrorists.

After the recognition of the flight’s path, the search became more refined. The refined search was in a completely different spot than what was originally searched. As stated in the article “Malaysian jet MH370: Refined analysis drives new search area” by Jonathan Amos, the refined search area covered a surface of 60,000 square kilometers, which is incomparably smaller than the original space. In this area, about 1,800 km from Perth, Australia, specialists from numerous countries were scanning the ocean floor vigorously in search for the black box (Amos).
