Deep-sea explorers have captured detailed images of three shipwrecks from World War II’s Battle of Midway, including the first up-close photos of a Japanese aircraft carrier since it sank in 1942. The Akagi, Kaga, and USS Yorktown were surveyed by a crew aboard the Exploration Vessel Nautilus. Remote-controlled vessels were used to film the wrecks, and over 100 experts from the US, Japan, and other countries provided real-time interpretations. The mission marked the deepest remotely operated vehicle dive for the E/V Nautilus. The Battle of Midway was a pivotal moment in the Pacific theater of World War II.
