Jeff Bezos: Apollo 11 Engines From 1969 Found In Atlantic Ocean

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos announced today that an underwater sea expedition he financed has discovered artifacts from the Apollo 11 mission to the moon at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, nearly 43 years after they landed there.

Bezos says that F-1 rocket engines were found 14,000 feet below the surface using deep sea sonar, and he intends to raise at least one, maybe more, above sea level.

The first-stage Apollo 11 engines that Bezos claims have been found helped lift Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins toward the moon in 1969, Scientific American reports. Bezos does not say how the team was able to prove their authenticity.



This is kind of cool.

I have to say that folks like Bezos, Cameron & Ballard have really pushed the envelope on ocean exploration.

Not even close! Much, much deeper. 36,200 ft+ although the average ocean depth is around 14,000 ft.
