Say goodbye to the Glomar Explorer

The Glomar Explorer was a remarkable ship, but the story surrounding her is still more amazing. She was built during the Cold War for a secret high-tech CIA mission, the sheer complexity of which rivaled a space mission. After her mission was exposed, she was converted into a deep-sea oil drilling ship. In 2015 it was announced that she would be sold for scrap.
