Explorers have discovered the world’s deepest shipwreck after 78 years: a US Navy escort destroyer that sank during the greatest naval battle of World War II.

Explorers found the USS Samuel B. Roberts, nicknamed “Sammy B,” 22,916 feet (6,985 meters) below the surface of the Philippine Sea near Samar, the Philippines’ third-largest island. The wreck was broken in half and the two parts are only 10 meters apart.
