Texas A&M at Qatar Mathematician Offers Theory on What Happened to MH370

Anonym 0 14084 Article rating: No rating
The plight of Malaysia Airlines flight 370 (MH370) is one of the biggest mysteries in aviation history, but an interdisciplinary research team led by Texas A&M University at Qatar mathematician Goong Chen has theorized the ill-fated plane plunged vertically into the southern Indian Ocean in March 2014.
The researchers' computer simulations lead to the forensic assertion that a 90-degree nosedive explains the lack of debris or spilled oil in the water near where the plane is presumed to have crashed. The research was the cover story in the April 2015 issue of Notices of the American Mathematical Society (see the team's paper here.)
Chen is an applied mathematician teaching and researching at Texas A&M at Qatar who has been a faculty member

With only two weeks until the final event on 15 June, 18 finalists have been chosen from 400 applications submitted to the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy (SC) for the highly successful first cycle of Challenge 22.

Throughout the first phase of Challenge 22, 31 semi-finalists were each assigned a mentor from institutions around Qatar to support them in taking their two-page proposal to a full detailed submission.
Those applications have been carefully reviewed and processed, leaving the 18 applicants who have demonstrated the greatest capacity to deliver an innovative idea that could leave a lasting legacy.  
Fatma Al-Nuaimi, Legacy Senior Manager at the SC said: “Our partners and mentors were crucial in enabling the final 18 applicants to enter this exciting phase of the competition. The level of applications from all those remaining is extremely high, so it’s certainly not going to be an easy decision for the judging panel.”
