    500-year-old mystery: Wreck off Haiti may be Columbus' flagship Santa Maria

    (CNN) -- Is a sunken shipwreck off Haiti the long-lost remains of the Santa Maria, Christopher Columbus' flagship from his first voyage to the Americas?
    The underwater explorer Barry Clifford, who led a team that found and investigated the wreck, says he's confident it is.
    "This is the ship that changed the course of human history," he told CNN.
    If the claim is confirmed, it would go down as one of the most significant underwater archaeological discoveries ever.

    We should send this guy out to find flight 370.

    If it is, and if there are valuables found intact, where will they end up?

    Prolly. Running expensive equipment and crew, I don't even want to guess how much that costs either.

    It would most likely end up in a laboratory for a few years with hundreds of studies being carried out by everyone from historians to engineers. The Smithsonian would probably be one of the organizations most likely to help in that matter.
