Apollo 11 Engines Found, For more than four decades, the engines that helped boost the Apollo 11 mission to the moon have rested in the Atlantic.
Now, Internet billionaire and space enthusiast Jeff Bezos wants to raise at least one of them to the surface.
An undersea expedition spearheaded by Bezos used sonar to find what he said were the F-1 engines located 14,000 feet deep.
In an online announcement yesterday, the Amazon.com CEO and founder said he is drawing up plans to recover the sunken engines, part of the mighty Saturn V rocket that launched Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins on their moon mission.
The five engines dropped into the sea as planned minutes after liftoff in 1969. Four days later, Armstrong and Aldrin walked on the moon.
Bezos acknowledged the engines are the property of NASA, but said he hopes they will go to museums.
