October 1, 2014 - US Naval Academy oceanography specialists will get an intensive first-hand look into the scientific and technological advances in technology which allowed Jeff Bezos’s team to recover Apollo F1 rocket motors from over 14,000 fsw. Operations Manager Vince Capone, a 30+-year marine scientist who worked on the 2013 Apollo F-1 Engine recovery expedition will be giving an in-depth animated presentation on November 6.
The presentation will go beyond the actual recounting of the expedition, delineating the technology and science behind the operation as well as interesting discoveries regarding the deepwater environment. The midshipmen will be exposed to technology and science pertinent to their future careers as Naval officers in the US Navy which is rapidly modernizing with advances in underwater technology.
