Last week, Paul Allen and his research team aboard the Octopus discovered the Musashi, one of the most significant battleships ever sunk during World War II.
Now, Allen’s team invites you to follow along as they tour the wreckage in a live feed that starts at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT tonight.
The live tour will “offer the first-ever complete view of the sunken ship. Viewers will experience more than an hour of exclusive footage of the battleship, including details such as the bow and stern sections, and the main conning tower. The tour will be conducted using the same state-of-the-art Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) that was used to discover the Musashi,” according to the release.
Discovered March 2, just off the coast of the Philippines, it is considered a significant find. The Musashi was one of the largest battleships ever made and went down in one of WWII’s largest naval encounters.
