Apollo-Black-Laser

Last year a very complex technical underwater expedition resulted in the recovery of an Apollo F-1 engine from the Apollo 11 mission, the first landing of man on the moon on July 20, 1969. The 30-day recovery operation took place near the Bermuda Triangle, on one of the most advanced deepwater salvage ships equipped with the latest dynamic positioning technology.

The technology required to recover the Apollo artifacts from almost three miles beneath the sea parallels the technology used to place man on the moon; one mission was realized in outter space, while the other incredible challenge was conquered in inner space.

All of this amazing technology enabled the recovery team to work at a depth of 14,000 feet of sea water, exploring several debris fields until they recovered the F-1 engine, part of the Saturn S-IC rocket that propelled Apollo 11 into space, now undergoing conservation at the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center. Artifacts from several other Apollo space missions were also recovered.

On March 15th, the recovery team will be presented with the prestigious Explorer's Club Citation of Merit Award for their outstanding feat of exploration.
