1:58 am
reminder of her service in the war. >> reporter: as the years passed, the first hands of the accounts of the war are hard to come by. even the video of the atomic age that could feel like a different age altogether. but it's really not that far away from us. the cold war, which threatened every human being on the planet, it only sits about 30 miles off the california coast. about 2,600 feet below the surface. >> so when you see something like this on the bottom and it connects to not only the world history, but to their own personal history, it is profound. >> half moon bay chris walker kpix 5. >> we don't know anything about that. we know more about the surface of the moon than we do portions of the ocean floor. kind of crazy what is literally right there below us. we have 50s and 60s outside tonight. on the berkeley campus we have our video, 63 right now in san jose. oakland, concordat 61.
