Missing Malaysia Airlines flight: The world's 10 most mysterious plane disappearances and strangest aircraft crashes

Missing Malaysia Airlines flight: The world's 10 most mysterious plane disappearances and strangest aircraft crashes | What's Happening? | Scoop.it
As events surrounding the disappearance of Malasian Airlines flight MH370 unfold - we look at some of the most unusual aircraft incidents through history

Nikole Maroe's insight:

This article was shocking and mysterious. The fact that we are dealing with a plane that has disappeared and there are no clues or anything that could help find the plane, is just shocking. It brings up so many unanswerable questions. Where did it go? Was it an accident? High-jackers? Why is there an oil leak, but no sign of a plane? 

After reading this article though it was brought to my attention that this has happened a number of times through out history. And the usual the final result is that it is undetermined and it gets left as that. Which is saddening for the families and friends of the passengers and crew of the plane. From what I have read and seen on the News, Malaysia is doing whatever than can to get closer to ending out what exactly happened.

The Bermuda triangle 'stories' fascinates me ~ some of these 'plane' mysteries are baffling! One here says that the. The Star Dust (1947) wasnt discovered till 50yrs later! I also read in another article that Amelia Earhart's wreckage was found in 2013 by TIGHAR (The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery) team  (read that here: http://news.discovery.com/history/us-history/amelia-earhart-plane-lockheed-electra-sonar-130615.htm)

Are you looking for a way to practice reading with your child?

Nikole Maroe's insight:

I think this article is interesting because you would think that you could just read a book to practice reading. Nowadays everything is getting electronic, even in local elementary schools every student is receiving iPads. This idea of giving K-8 grade students iPads to work on in class is repulsive.  I do not think there has been an improvement to teaching or learning with these enhances in the classroom and the fact that there are "55 free iPad Apps for practicing  reading" is wrong, well at least thats what i believe. The younger generation is already so intwined with technology so in my eye i do not think that it needs to be in the classroom as well.

Andrea Luna's curator insight, February 26, 2014 6:29 PM

This generation is known for its technologies. Its known for coming up with the latest technology. We are known to not use communication skills verbally but technology can be a way to learn. There are many apps that people come up with in order to learn how to count, how to read, how to do everything basically and it is a clever way to learn. Using technology can cause a distraction for all we know but we just have to wait and see the results.

Nikole Maroe's insight:

I thought this article was interesting because one would think that all sea life would be the same in the ocean. But come to find out the deep sea life found in the trench, New Hebridesoff, off of New Zealand coast is far more different than what we would find in the Pacific Ocean. This one trench goes far below the oceans surface at around 25,00 feet, which let alone is remarkable. The lead marine biologist that was on this expedition, Alan Jamieson, mentioned how there was few fish in this community and also how there was not much diversity. The fish named grenadier that is found in the Pacific from 6,300 to 23,000 feet was not seen once off the coast of New Zealand which was surprisingly, they expected to see this. The fish that was found instead, was the cusk eel, in this trench. This article has opened my mind to how far little we know about our ocean then we expect. We actually know more about space than we do the ocean, which is another topic that I'm only bringing up to help out this article because even during the 27 expedition they went on in the New Hebridesoff trench they were not expecting to find what they did.

Nikole Maroe's insight:

This is the first occurrence that a whale has been 100% freed from fishing line.There has been three other stories like this, but this one whale has been fully rescued. It had 200 feet of line tangled around the body of the whale and also had two buoys and also a 40 feet tail of the line trailing behind it. I found this interesting because our ocean supposedly have been getting "cleaner" but they have no clue where this line came from. And it brings to my attention that if these whales are getting caught up in lines, what could the smaller animals of the sea getting caught in?
