Wreck of missing Argentine sub discovered

The ARA San Juan has finally been found twelve months after it went missing during a routine mission.
The submarine had been on its way to Ushuaia near South America's southernmost tip when it was forced to surface due to an 'electrical breakdown'.

The vessel was ordered to abandon its mission and return to base immediately, however not long afterwards all contact was lost. The last communication received was at 07:30 on November 15th.

According to the Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty Organisation, an unexplained noise or 'hydro-acoustic anomaly' had been picked up a few hours after the sub's last contact.

It is believed that this may have been the sound of the submarine imploding.
Now, twelve months after the ARA San Juan's disappearance, the wreckage of the vessel has been discovered by a US company around 270 miles off the Argentine coast at a depth of 2,620ft.

The relatives of the vessel's 44 crewmembers gathered earlier this week in remembrance.

An investigation in to exactly what caused the submarine's demise remains ongoing.

Sad, hopefully, this will put an end to the conspiracy theories.

Not a lot of happy ending with a submarine mishap...glad that they found it, so the families can put an end to their search of answers.
