At the bottom of the Pacific ocean at a depth of 5.4 thousand meters was discovered the wreckage of the sunken USS Indianapolis delivered components for the atomic bomb that dropped on Hiroshima.
The ship found a team of civilian researchers under the leadership of co-founder of Microsoft Paul Allen, reports CNN.
“As Americans, we should all be grateful to the team of this ship for their courage, perseverance and sacrifice. While our search continues, I hope that through our discovery related to this ship will experience in some measure the sense of calm,” said Mr. Allen.
Delivery of components for the atomic bomb was the last secret military mission of the ship. When he returned on 30 July 1945, the Japanese sunk his submarine. The cruiser sank within 12 minutes. Of the 1196 sailors survived 316. A search of the vehicle lasted for 72 years.
