A Search Thousands of Feet Underwater

Locating the black boxes of Air France Flight 447 is not easy: The plane fell hundreds of miles away from any coast, in an area where ocean depths vary from 2,800 to 15,000 feet. To make matters worse, pinging signals emitted by the data boxes are expected to stop in less than two weeks.

And nobody knows if the boxes have been damaged in the crash, which could make recovery impossible.
