The Salem Express ship crashed into the Hyndman Reefs on the Egyptian just after midnight on December 17th, 1991, killing 470 passengers and sending the ship and its contents to the bottom of the Red Sea.  This Atari 2600 has recently been photographed by scuba divers who are investigating the wreckage.  Today marks 22 years since the Salem Express sank, and the Atari remains in the ocean to this day.
