Depth 10,000 feet, 400 miles southwest of the Azores; stern view of the nuclear-powered attack submarine USS SCORPION (SSN-589) showing the upper portion of the rudder (with draft markings) and the port stern plane. Note that the impact with the ocean floor has caused the after portion of the engine room section to be telescoped into the machinery room. The ribs of the stern planes can be seen due to the deformation of the metal covering then and display the massive force which was imparted to the ship upon impact with the sea bottom. The SCORPION sank 22 May 1968
