The Co-Pilot & His Hidden Illness

Co-pilot Andreas Lubitz might have 'hidden' evidence of illness from his employers and was signed off work on the day of the disaster according to prosecutors in Germany. Pilot and science writer Jeff Wise joins us to talk about the details around the plane's crash. He says there are still many more questions than answers surrounding this case, "Hopefully, it will all make sense at some point," he says. Police are currently investigating Andreas Lubitz's home, recovering materials that will help officials with their investigation.
