    What Odyssey is asking for in the appeal

    You obviously know nothing about salvage law. Spain was not actively trying to salvage the wreck, nor did they know the location. This makes it fair game. Finder keepers. Mel Fisher went all the way to the supreme court with his Atoch case... and won. So will Odyssey as the Mel Fisher case set the precedent.

    If the shuttle crashed, the military, NASA, and other government agencies would know where it is and they would be actively trying to salvage it. Odyssey could have no claims on a shuttle crash. The only thing they could do is get hired on as a subcontractor to assist the recovery. They would be paid for their service, and no they could not keep any of the finds.
