The story

In the depths of Oceania everything is dark due to the sand movements. Suddenly, a round helmet emerges from the seabed, it is a diver. He is looking for something in the sand… When suddenly he sees a long handle. As he approaches it, he notices that it is a gun with a name engraved on it. “The Astrolabe”. Several decades earlier, in 1785, the glorious expedition of “La Pérouse” was setting sail! Commissioned by King Louis XVI, the “Astrolabe” and the “Boussole” sailed around the world, led by Count Jean-François de La Pérouse, before disappearing in 1788… Nobody knew for a long time what had happened to the expedition, King Louis XIV even asked in 1791 before being executed “Is there any news of Monsieur de La Pérouse? “
