In addition to his own Blue Origin rocket pursuits, Amazon guru Jeff Bezos is also interested in space history and artefacts. He is leading a team attempting to find parts of the first stage of the Saturn V rocket which was used to launch the Apollo 11 first moon landing expedition in July 1969. Bezos has reported that his team and has now found the Apollo 11 engines lying 14,000 feet below the surface in the Atlantic using state-of-the-art deep sea sonar.
The team hopes to recover these engines and display them (with NASA’s permission) in various museums including the Smithsonian Air and Space museum. The condition of the engines is not yet known.
