Missing Malaysian flight :
The space age began on October 4, 1957 with the launch of the first artificial satellite, Sputnik 1. Following in these historic footsteps, many more spacecraft have been sent into Earth’s orbit, around the Moon, the Sun, the other planets, and even out of the Solar System itself. Currently there are 1071 operational satellites in orbit around the Earth and more that 21,000 objects orbiting the Earth.
But, still no one satellite was able to trace the missing Malaysian flight, which disappeared with 239 people on board on March 9th morning.
