Wreck of 'iconic' battleship USS Nevada that survived Pearl Harbor and atomic bomb tests discovered

Researchers have discovered the wreck of storied World War II battleship USS Nevada 65 nautical miles southwest of Pearl Harbor.

The wreck, which is lying at a depth of over 15,400 feet, was found by underwater archaeology specialist SEARCH and marine robotics company Ocean Infinity, according to a statement released by the firms.

Ocean Infinity vessel Pacific Constructor was undertaking a number of commercial tasks in the Pacific in early 2020 prior to the global coronavirus outbreak. She has remained at sea amid the pandemic.
