Chinese satellite detects a chunk of debris in S. Corridor

Another day, another satellite sighting this time by China. This maybe the same piece of debris that was seen before on 3-16-14 by the grainy-image, poor quality, public access DigitalGlobe satellite. China has released a similarly poor quality image (at link below). The location is also marked on Google Maps (again at link). Relative to Diego Garcia, which is also in the Southern Hemisphere, this chuck of debris is located only about 3,000 miles away. An expert has said the odds are a million-to-one that this object will ever be found and that it is a piece of flight MH370. The reason is the ocean in that general area tends to accumulate more debris than other locations. Grim.

There is nothing else to report. One blog site has shutdown due to the lack of new information. Is this how it will end, without a trace, and chasing pieces of junk?
