    On Saturday, a Chinese vessel searching for the Boeing 777 that went down in the Indian Ocean in March detected a pulse that could be coming from the plane's "black box." Now two more ships, another Chinese ship and an Australian one, have also reported pings. One was about a mile away from the first pulse, and the third was in a different location.
