Researchers at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration are exploring shipwrecks in the uncharted waters of the deepest parts of the Gulf of Mexico, delivering stunning, never-before-seen footage.
Using remote-operated submersibles to investigate a number of shipwrecks, researchers have been able to uncover shipwrecks thousands of feet underwater in the least-explored parts of the Gulf of Mexico.
Rich sea life has taken over these vessels. Octopuses, fish, crabs, and sea plants cover ships, boats, and a submarine. Different aspects of the vessels also give insight into the technology in use during different eras.
A German submarine, the only one to attack ships near U.S. shores during World War II, is among the finds. A tugboat that went down in a storm in the 1960s, and a subsequent successful rescue mission, was also discovered, according to Business Insider.
