The Search for Indianapolis Hits a Snag

The crew of R/V Petrel has mapped out the area of the Philippine Sea where they will search for the Indianapolis. On the second run of their Autonomous Underwater Vehicle, they discover an object that looks like a ship, but it isn’t clear if it’s Indy. They decide to send the Remotely Operated Vehicle to get a closer look, but run into a potentially mission ending mechanical issue in the process.
