Nevada was found 3 miles underwater. Amazing capability.

Two private firms working together, Search Inc. and Ocean Infinity, discovered the Nevada almost three miles underwater and about 65 nautical miles southwest of Honolulu

They tried to calculate its exact depth but... it was unfathomable.
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

Pretty amazing from a scientific point of view how lack of light and oxygen, and probably the radioactivity after nuclear testing probably all combined to help preserve her.

Water temp may also be a factor.
