To add to this, there is an excellent book about people who've explored it called Shadow Divers.
The book is horrifying and exhilarating at the same time.
I used to fly on JSTARS which has the capability to image the ground (fucking poorly, but still) with radar from very far away. We could barely even make out buildings, but it could still do it. Those images (called Synthetic Aperture Radar) contain shadows like this. The reason is because it is taken from an angle, and then processed to display as if being viewed from directly above. The shadows are just spots where the sonar is blocked by the wreck from reaching the ground. This sort of imaging is really cool, but takes a long time to process and is usually very low quality. We used to take shots of our own airfield to calibrate the radar and it would take 10-20 shots just to get one that was good enough quality to identify our parking ramp. This article has a few examples of really high quality SAR shots that have shadows.
Basically, you're right. The pictures were taken from an offset angle, but then processed by the imaging software to be displayed as they look from above, hence the shadows.
I hope that helps lol, sorta rambled.
It seems they got 2 nuke torpedoes. So they got some nukes. But they didn't get the ICBM.
Read / watch Project Azorian. It goes into great detail about the whole project with interviews / footage of the whole thing.
If you can get your hands on National Geographic's 12/85 issue, which was after the discovery but before the Alvin exploration, it has a ton of Argo's photos.
If you progress through a technical program, eventually it'll become an option for you.
If you like deep diving, I recommend reading "A Walk on the Deep Side" by John Kean. It's an enjoyably read about everyone racing to set deep diving records in the 90s and 2000s, and talks a lot about gas mixes and tank configurations and the like. Check out this crazy config, for example, worn by Leigh Cunningham in the Red Sea.
Late 80s early 90s some dumbass got an SUV stuck in the outgoing pipe if I recall correctly.
Edit: found it. It was 1995
You may also enjoy this street view of the city of Pripyat, town of Chernobyl (plus power plant), and the road leading to the edge of the exclusion zone.
I obviously can't say for certain, but it was a small black box that had a little baggy inside it that said "Titanic Coal" I believe and it has 2 little pieces of coal about the size of a nickel. I tried to find it for a picture, but I think it's in a box in the basement =/
Edit: It was this https://offerup.com/item/detail/524189869
Lol anytime I want to belly laugh, I read the reviews for this book.
If you like reviews, check out the ones for this steering wheel desk.
Make sure to sort by 1 and 2 star, and also check out customer images.
Hello, I'm a bot! The movie you linked is called Le grand bleu, here are some Trailers
