Today on Discovery Enterprise we focus our attention on the occupation and technology of Deep Sea Salvage.
Driven by the need for deep sea rescue and salvage capabilities, the US Navy Diving and Salvage Programs have gathered together a highly skilled team of divers, scientists and engineers, who have been involved in some of the most exciting and dangerous salvage operations ever undertaken. Ride aboard the USS Salvor, which is equipped with underwater remote operated robots and see how they were put to use following the crash of TWA Flight 800. We'll examine the bomb locating mini-sub Alvin and learn about "Saturation Diving" which allows divers to stay below for days at a time.
Modern Marvels: Deep Sea Salvage is one exciting documentary that you will want to add to your DVD collection and is available from the History Channel’s online store.
