Jeff Bezos finds engines from Apollo space missions

Over the past few years, Amazon CEO and founder Jeff Bezos has been paying for folks to float around in the Atlantic Ocean  looking for the F-1 engines from the Apollo rockets, the big ones that burned out then fell into the ocean.

Bezos announced today that he's located the engines.
