Why would the windows crack? Cabin windows are made of stretched acrylic and stretched acrylic shrinks when it is heated.

It was confirmed by the investigation. Also, the show was wrong the 737 was NOT grounded worldwide. An AD was issued to inspect the suspected area. A few other cases were found and corrective action was taken
