South Korea's own CSI team has figured out the exact cause of the Cheonan shipwreck, except for one key detail.

Here's what they know so far, according to Chosun Ilbo:

A team of scientists believes that the Navy corvette Cheonan sank after being hit by a heavy 206 kg torpedo that ran at a speed of 65 km/h.... exploded underwater 2.3 m from the ship with power equivalent to 206 kg of TNT... a series of internal explosions occurred in the stern for about 80 seconds... the ship was probably hit by a Chinese-made 206 kg-class Yu-3 heavy torpedo.
