Explorers discovered the deepest shipwreck in the world 78 years later. It is a US Navy destroyer escort that sank during the largest naval battle of World War II.

Explorers discovered USS Sammy B. Roberts, called “Sammy B,” 22,916 feet (6,985 meters) below the surface of the Philippine Sea near Samar Island, the third largest island in the Philippines. The wreckage broke in half and the two parts are only 33 feet (10 meters) apart.
