Things you can do when you have $25B: Amazon CEO recovers Apollo 11 rockets from bottom of Ocean
Two mammoth rocket engines that helped boost Apollo astronauts to the moon have been fished out of the Atlantic.
An expedition led by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos pulled up the engines and is headed back to Cape Canaveral, Florida, after three weeks at sea.
Bezos and NASA announced the recovery on Wednesday.
“This is a historic find and I congratulate the team for its determination and perseverance in the recovery of these important artifacts of our first efforts to send humans beyond Earth orbit,” NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said in a release. (AFP PHOTO / Bezos Expeditions)
