    Australia Finds Wreck of World War I Submarine, Solving a 103-Year Enigma


    aussie sub.jpg

    LONDON — For more than a century, the fate of Australia’s first military submarine was one of the country’s enduring maritime mysteries.

    The vessel, lost off Papua New Guinea in September 1914, barely seven months after being commissioned for service, disappeared with 35 crew members during operations to capture the German Pacific colonies in World War I.

    Now the puzzle is solved.

    The Australian Navy announced on Thursday the discovery of a wreck they identified as the submarine, the AE1. The discovery was made by a survey ship, the Fugro Equator, that was used in another seemingly impossible endeavor: the search for the remains of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, which disappeared during a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8, 2014.
    Oh, bacon and Hitler.

    There.

    Nice - wonder if they'll raise it?

      It's 300 meters down, and supposedly "There are no plans to return AE1 to Australia, but work will now begin on trying to establish why it sank."

      You'd kinda think they'd need to raise it to find that out, but presumably they'd do Remote Operated Vehicle stuff to study the hull for... one of the theories, apparently, is that one of its own torpedoes detonated in the sub.

          They raised the Hundley and that one was about 150 years old. So maybe?

              Hunley. And she was only down about 10 meters.
