USS Independence Aircraft Carrier blown up in the Baker Bikini Island “Operation Crossroads” nuclear test which was “cleaned” at Hunters Point Shipyard in San Francisco was scuttled after 4 years of attempts to clean the ship of its radiation and it was scuttled officially recorded as off the Farallon Islands but it was actually sunk at the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The Navy stuffed it with barrels of radioactive Waste to make the problem disappear.
I wonder if the scientists diving on the wreck know about the radiation?
The Ship was found again in 2015 https://www.mercurynews.com/2015/04/16/scientists-find-radioactive-wwii-aircraft-carrier-off-san-francisco-coast/
