"Nearly one year ago, Jeff Bezos shared with us his plans to recover F-1
engines that helped power Apollo astronauts to the moon in the late 1960s and
early 1970s. We share the excitement expressed by Jeff and his team in
announcing the recovery of two of the powerful Saturn V first-stage engines
from the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.

"This is a historic find and I congratulate the team for its determination and
perseverance in the recovery of these important artifacts of our first efforts
to send humans beyond Earth orbit.

"We look forward to the restoration of these engines by the Bezos team and
applaud Jeff's desire to make these historic artifacts available for public
display.

"Jeff and his colleagues at Blue Origin are helping to usher in a new
commercial era of space exploration and we are confident our continued
collaboration will soon result in private human access to space, creating jobs
and driving America's leadership in innovation and exploration."
