Bill Nye Joins in CNN Flight 370 Speculation: Plane Most Likely Underwater

At this point, it just seems that CNN is literally throwing on anyone they can think of to join in the rampant speculation over the missing Malaysian Airlines Flight 370, and Wednesday night, Erin Burnett brought on Bill Nye “the Science Guy” who, fun fact, used to be an engineer for Boeing. Nye leant his expertise to what could have happened to the plane, but again, as with everyone else CNN has put on air in the last week, he had no direct knowledge of the plane itself and could only speculate as to what happened.

Nye seemed to acknowledge the oddity of him being asked to weigh in, saying, “I appreciate you all asking me about this, but there’s just so many theories out there.” He questioned the motive of possible hijackers on board the plane and what they would do with hundreds of hostages, and speculated that since the plane’s not been found for over a week, it is most likely somewhere in the vast ocean.

That being said, Nye conceded, “I’m just one more person with one more idea about this.”
