Divers retrieved the crashed AirAsia plane's second black box from the bottom of the Java Sea Tuesday, giving experts essential tools to piece together what brought Flight 8501 down.The cockpit voice recorder was freed from beneath heavy wreckage at a depth of about 30 meters, a day after the flight data recorder was recovered, said Tonny Budiono, sea navigation director at the Transportation Ministry. The plane disappeared from radar less than halfway into a two-hour flight from Surabaya, Indonesia, to Singapore on Dec. 28 .The information obtained from the black boxes -- which are actually orange -- will likely be vital.
