Researchers have finally located the wreck of the ship known as the ‘Chilean Titanic' that sank 95 years ago…

The storied ship was used by rebels during the 1891 Chilean Civil War and was involved in a diplomatic incident between the U.S. and Chile over a shipment of arms.

Interesting, but I fear that if we wait, in less than ten years it'll be illegally raised and melted for scrap like HMS Prince of Wales and others.
