Jeff Bezos Finds Apollo 11's Saturn V

F-1 Engine Recovery, Bezos Expeditions

"I'm excited to report that, using state-of-the-art deep sea sonar, the team has found the Apollo 11 engines lying 14,000 feet below the surface, and we're making plans to attempt to raise one or more of them from the ocean floor. We don't know yet what condition these engines might be in - they hit the ocean at high velocity and have been in salt water for more than 40 years. On the other hand, they're made of tough stuff, so we'll see."

Marc's note: it will be very interesting to see what condition the engine(s) are in if they are able to raise one or more of them.
