Search for MH370 discovers underwater secrets

The search for the missing MH370 aircraft has scoured the depths of the Indian Ocean for almost a year and found no trace of the plane. While this must be heartbreaking for victims’ loved ones, the search has yielded many discoveries about a part of the deep ocean scientists knew very little about.

Detailed mapping has revealed mountains as high as Mount Kosciuszko, canyons the size of the Grand Canyon and a never before seen 34-kilometre-long undersea ridge.
