      48h? It's bad.

        It's been gone for some 36 hours or something by now, perhaps even longer, which frankly sounds a bit disconcerting.

        A NASA-operated P-3 Orion was redirected from an ice survey mission in Antarctica to participate in the searches, and the UK has offered to help as well, using aircraft off the Falklands.

          Five countries are now looking for it and the Argentine government has gone into emergency mode, even cancelling trips and what not:

          The Argentine Navy still only treats it as a communications issue though, apparently. They don't want to discuss more "pessimistic" scenarios at all.

              Any theories for now? AFAIK sub was modernized in 2005? Really don't want another Kursk scenario.

                  Was it submerged during the trip?

                      NAVAL STATION MAYPORT, Fla. (NNS) -- The U.S. Navy has ordered its Undersea Rescue Command (URC) based in San Diego, Calif., to deploy to Argentina, Nov. 18 to support the South American nation's ongoing search for the Argentinean Navy submarine A.R.A. San Juan in the Southern Atlantic.

                      URC is deploying two independent rescue assets based on a number of factors, including the varying depth of ocean waters near South America's southeastern coast and the differing safe operating depths of the two rescue systems.

                      Three U.S. Air Force C-17 Globemaster III and one U.S. Air Force C-5 Galaxy aircraft will transport the first rescue system, the Submarine Rescue Chamber (SRC) and underwater intervention Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) from Miramar to Comodoro Rivadavia, Argentina. The four aircraft are scheduled to depart Miramar Nov. 18 and arrive in Argentina Nov. 19.

                          Hopefully just a communication issue.

                            Nope because protocol stipulate that in case of communication issues it should go to the surface.

                              This has gone on too long now, I cannot see a positive outcome here.
