A team of ocean explorers using autonomous underwater robots has discovered the bow of the World War II submarine USS Grunion 77 years after the sub went missing near the Aleutian Islands in Alaska.
The submarine, which had a crew of 70 sailors, went missing about a month after it departed on its first war patrol in 1942. It wasn’t seen again until 2007, when its wreckage was found off the coast of the Aleutian Islands by the sons of the Grunion’s captain, Lieutenant Commander Mannert L. Abele
