    Default Long lost Apollo 11 engines found at the bottom of the sea

    http://dvice.com/archives/2012/03/long-lost-apoll.php

    Lying at a depth of 14,000 ft. below sea level, how is anybody possibly going to retrieve these monsters?

    That's actually really cool. It will be interesting to see the condition they are in. I wonder if they will be retrievable or if they will turn to dust if messed with like much of the Titanic's wreckage?

    Jeff Bezos is going to waste a lot of money dragging that from the depths. Wy bother? Why not spend those millions on something that benefits someone? It's just the vanity of the super rich.

    Well, it is a fairly significant piece of history. If it is at all salvageable, it may be worth retrieving to put in a museum or something. It really depends on the condition they are in. I see where you're coming from though.

    They were lost? Didn't think anyone missed them.

    It could have turned out as bad as this

    How about the basic courtesy of picking up after yourself? And I'm not even an environmentalist..

    That's not the motivation behind this.
