USS Oriskany - Reef / Diving site - Nicknamed “the Great Carrier Reef”
A one-of-a-kind diving experience, the sunken aircraft carrier USS Oriskany is the largest artificial reef in the world. Built shortly after World War II, the “Mighty O” served primarily in the Pacific, earning two battle stars for service in the Korean War and ten battle stars for service in the Vietnam War.

Mariana Trench - Located in the western Pacific east of the Philippines and an average of approximately 124 miles (200 kilometers) east of the Mariana Islands, the Mariana Trench is a crescent-shaped scar in the Earth’s crust that measures more than 1,500 miles (2,550 kilometers) long and 43 miles (69 kilometers) wide on average.
What is a hydrothermal vent?
FYI…that ship is capable of finding and recovering objects three miles down. We all know why it’s still in the Pacific, and not near Puerto Rico.
Yes I agree, the recovery operation that is still pending off the coast of the crooked island in the Atlantic / Puerto Rico is best described as the following.
Lack of Resources = Lack of money for that type of project. Even with VDR in hand in the future? or not nothing changes.

You’re right about that. Nothing will change. The initial decision to sail, in my opinion, was the root cause of the calamity.
But it would be nice to have those recordings, if they still exist.
