    A lot of lost stuff is being found these days. Even Ballard is now running around looking for Amelia Earhardt. (Big special - didn't find it)

    Makes me wonder why no one can find The Lost Squadron.

      Anyone care to guess why ?

      Has sonar improved ? Or has it simply become cheaper and more available to anyone doing historical research ?

      This month's discoveries came after weeks of searching by crew members based on the research vessel Petrel. The vessel is owned by Vulcan Inc, a company created by the late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen.
      The crew deployed an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) fitted with sonar, which helped to pinpoint the locations of the Kaga and Akagi.

          I saw a map of the "Bermuda Triangle" recently and thought the same thing. Awful big area to search though.
          I wonder, with all this new AI tech that an autonomous vehicle, possibly nuclear powered, could survey the area and find all kinds of stuff that was lost.

            1. More searching for resources on the ocean bottoms.

            2. highly improved sonar.

            3. autonomous vehicles, and cheaper, more reliable UAV's.

            4. Seems to be greater interest in finding historical wrecks. Earns big money on television.
