The three-century old San José was a 62-gun three-masted Spanish galleon that sank with a cargo believed to be worth billions of dollars. The ship, which is often called the “holy grail of shipwrecks,” went down with a treasure of gold, silver and emeralds in 1708 during a battle with British ships in the War of Spanish Succession.
The legendary wreck was discovered off the coast of Cartagena, Colombia on Nov. 27, 2015 more than 600 meters below the surface using an autonomous underwater robot developed and operated by WHOI engineers. Please join us as we hear more and see images captured by scientists exploring the wreck with Dr. Kaeli.
