Over 65 years ago in offshore of San Francisco Bay there was sinking of light aircraft carrier. So remembering this in mind, Marine explorers have begun their survey. The survey is in relation with Wreckage of World War II era.


At Bikini Atoll in the Pacific USS Independence took part in the atomic tests. This happening took place after productive duty during World War II. Later Hunters Point Naval Shipyard in San Francisco took up the transfer. They were serving it as a subject on decontamination of studies by the Scientists.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration again did discovery of Independence. And it is now being the focus point of the scientific study. It came in notice of researchers that historic warship is still intact amazingly.

According to NOAA’s National Marine Sanctuaries there is clear visibility of first solar imaging of the hull and flight deck of the Independence. There is an appearance linking to the planes in hangar bay of 65-year-old warship.

As these missions are going on hard scientific results are setting up.

The vehicles will be featuring to come within 10 feet of the warship’s hull. Now, here the valuable information will be in collection for 16 to 18 hours. Research are still in search of the photographs and videos.


The role of USS Independence was guarding. It has also shown involvement in Battle of Gulf in the year 1944. The target vessels for atomic bomb test was Independence. Independence did not even sink when it was kept one-half-mile of ground zero during July 1 explosion. Veteran aircraft carrier was at end after the explosion on July 25.

The scuttling of Warship was finally seen near the Farallon Islands in California Coast in January 1951.
