SEOUL -- South Korea launched Asia's first vessel to survey underwater relics on Thursday giving a major boost to its marine archaeology studies that have helped explain Korea's ancient civilization and its exchange with neighboring countries.

The marine survey vessel named Seamuse went into commission for the National Maritime Museum in Mokpo on the country's southwest. It is the first of its kind in Asia, while European countries like France and Germany operate their own, the museum said.
