Three Miles Down

In 1995, a group of adventurers, investors, scientists, and salvage experts set out in search of two ships that had been sunk in the South Atlantic during World War II. One was the Japanese submarine 152, sunk en route from Japan to Germany by the U.S. Navy. The other was the S.S. Aurelia, sailing from Durban, South Africa, to Liverpool when she was downed by an Italian submarine. Both vessels lie at a depth of 15,000 to 20,000 feet, making salvage extremely difficult. They were rumored to be carrying gold bullion, but there has never been any conclusive proof. The 1995 search was unsuccessful, but in February 1999 the New York Times reported that the 152 had been found. Robots were sent down, but there was no treasureonly shoes from dead Japanese sailors
