Amazon Boss finds Moon Englines

Amazon boss Jeff Bezos 'finds Apollo 11 Moon engines'

Well, it is nice to have a hobby.
The BBC reports that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos says he has located the long-submerged F-1 engines that blasted the Apollo 11 Moon mission into space.

In a blog post, Mr Bezos said the five engines were found using advanced sonar scanning some 14,000ft (4,300m) below the Atlantic Ocean's surface.

Mr Bezos, billionaire bookseller and spaceflight enthusiast, said he was making plans to raise one or more.

Apollo 11 carried astronauts on the first Moon landing mission in 1969.
