    Default Soviet Wreck Found on the Baltic Sea Floor

    A Soviet submarine has been lying on the Baltic Sea floor for almost 70 years, ever since it ran into a Finnish mine in early 1940. Now, a team of divers say they have found the vessel.

    When it comes to sea floors, that of the Baltic Sea counts among the most cluttered. Barrels of toxic waste, World War II munitions and a wide variety of other detritus has settled to the bottom of the northern European body of water over the years.

    On Tuesday, a team of Swedish and Finnish divers announced the most recent find: a Soviet submarine sunk by Finnish mines in the Winter War of 1939-1940. Speaking to the press on Tuesday, the divers said that they found the S-2 sub near the Aland Islands, located between Finland and Sweden.

    Fascinating stuff when wreck are found. I've thought (as others I'm sure) what could be found by draining the sea. Far fetched but it makes my imagination wonder.Thanks for the stories.
