200-year-old shipwreck found in Gulf of Mexico

In this photo provided by NOAA Okeanos Explorer Program, a well preserved shipwreck is seen about 200 miles off the coast of La., at a depth around 4,000 feet, in the Gulf of Mexico, Friday, April 26, 2012. While most of the ship's wood has long since disintegrated, copper that sheathed the hull beneath the waterline as a protection against marine-boring organisms remains, leaving a copper shell retaining the form of the ship.
