A Colorado Company is giving the world access to their satellites hoping people can help find missing Malaysia Airline's Flight 370.

The company, Digital Globe, has it set up so that if you see any piece of an aircraft or lifeboat or anything that might be a clue, you tag it. The announcement comes the same time the search for the missing plane grows.

Search teams from nine different countries are now searching 27,000 nautical square miles for the airliner. The search has captivated the world as many people wonder how a massive Boeing 777 can just disappear.

"I'm seeing a lot of confusion, a lot of anger," says Clemson Graduate Research Assistant Alex Neal.

Neal has spent part of Wednesday monitoring the online chatter about the missing plane. People are sharing sentiments like this one: "internet shows us how small our world is, a missing plane shows us how big our planet is."

Opening up the search to anyone around the world enables anyone to solve the mystery.

"It's something that anybody could be the breaking point in this case," Neal says.

Making the world seem small once again.
