Amazon boss Jeff Bezos: Apollo 11 Moon engines

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos says he has located the long-submerged F-1 engines that blasted the Apollo 11 Moon mission into space. In 1969, Apollo 11 carried astronauts on the first Moon landing task. They burned for just a few minutes before separating from the second stage module and falling to Earth somewhere in the Atlantic.
Other elements of the Apollo missions including the Apollo 11 authority module are on display in the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington DC. The F-1 engines were used on the giant Saturn V rocket that carried the Apollo landing module out of the Earth's atmosphere and towards the Moon.
