Today we're learning that not only did the missing Malaysia Airlines plane send its position repeatedly to satellites for five hours after it disappeared off the radar screen, but those pings were also sending details about the plane's speed and altitude. The satellite data could help reveal the route of the missing plane.

But in a press conference earlier today, Malaysian officials continued to deny these findings. Andy Pasztor, has been covering this story for The Wall Street Journal, joins Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson to discuss the latest.

Yesterday, Pasztor made news with his story that missing Malaysian Airlines flight 370 could have flown for four more hours after its last confirmed contact. See our conversation with him yesterday here.
