A submarine missing for 75 years was recently discovered off the coast of Japan.
The USS Grayback was sunk in 1944 during its 10th combat patrol by a Japanese warplane, according to the Naval History and Heritage Command.
A single errant digit in the longitude and latitude due to a flawed translation was discovered last year by a Japanese amateur researcher, The New York Times reported.
Taylor and his team used autonomous underwater vehicles and advanced photo imaging to search 10 square nautical miles before finding the wreckage in 1,400 foot-deep water off the coast of Okinawa on one of their final days at sea.
"We were elated," Taylor told The Times. "But it's also sobering, because we just found 80 men."
The Grayback was one of the most successful submarines during World War II, sinking more than a dozen ships, according to the Navy.
The Lost 52 Project works to locate the submarines that were sunk during World War II. More than 40 of the 52 missing submarines have yet to be found. The others ran aground or were destroyed at known locations.
Taylor has led previous undersea explorations.
And earlier this year, he discovered the USS Grunion off the Aleutian Islands.
