[i]Though they've been on the ocean floor for a long time, the engines remain the property of NASA. If we are able to recover one of these F-1 engines that started mankind on its first journey to another heavenly body, I imagine that NASA would decide to make it available to the Smithsonian for all to see. If we're able to raise more than one engine, I've asked NASA if they would consider making it available to the excellent Museum of Flight here in Seattle.[/i]
[i]The rules regarding NASA property in the ocean are the same as those that govern sunken ships and other government property, including our hardware on the moon and other celestial bodies. As Mr. Bezos points out in his blog, the federal government retains ownership until the property is properly disposed. However, we do not see that as any impediment to the recovery efforts of the Apollo engines.[/i]
