Second Black Box From AFR447 Found

The cockpit voice recorder from Air France's flight 447 has been found, the last piece of the puzzle needed to determine what brought down the Airbus A300. From MSNBC:

The discovery of the audio recorder, two days after the flight data recorder was fished up, brings investigators even closer to the cause of the crash as it should hold recordings of cockpit conversations during the flight's final moments.
"We can now hope to find out what truly happened within the next three weeks," French Transport Minister Thierry Mariani told RTL radio.
