Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Recovers Apollo 11 Engines from the Ocean Floor

Quote:
An expedition funded by Amazon's CEO Jeff Bezos has recovered rusted pieces of two Apollo-era rocket engines from the depths of the Atlantic Ocean.
"We've seen an underwater wonderland - an incredible sculpture garden of twisted F-1 engines that tells the story of a fiery and violent end," Mr Bezos wrote in an online posting.
The team raised the main engine parts during three weeks at sea. The remnants of the engines, which helped send astronauts to the moon, will be sent back to Cape Canaveral, Florida, the launch pad for the manned lunar missions.
Last year, the Bezos team used sonar to spot the sunken engines resting nearly 3 miles deep in the Atlantic and 360 miles from Cape Canaveral. At the time, the internet mogul said the artifacts were part of the Apollo 11 mission that gave the world "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind."
