A trace signal from the Malaysia Airlines flight 370 which disappeared in March may have been found by the UN’s Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO).

CTBTO had originally said there was no trace of the disappeared plane on its International Monitoring System, which is used to scrutinize the earth, sea and air for potential nuclear detonations.

But now the organization is working with Australia’s Curtin University to examine data, which may ultimately reveal the location of the missing plane.

Cristina Silveiro asked Marc Prior, a seismic acoustic officer at CTBTO in Vienna about the new data.
