    Pretty cool. I'm sure it'll be almost if not impossible
    to tell what mission they were from. Still amazing since
    they've been at the bottom of the ocean for so long.

    Everything has a serial number. They could tell you the name of the machinist who made the bolt.

    Yeah but after 40 years on the ocean floor that may not be possible to read.

    Lots of stainless, inconel, monel, titanium. They will find a number.

    Plus, those pointy headed scientists probably laid odds on where each one would land and plotted the paths to the nearest foot with their slide rules.
