Best known for his 1985 discovery of the TITANIC, Dr. Robert Ballard has succeeded in tracking down numerous, significant shipwrecks. He is a National Geographic Society Explorer-In-Residence, a commissioner on the U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy, and president of the Ocean Exploration Trust. An explorer, discoverer, and historian, Ballard’s fascinating journeys can teach us a great deal about our past, and they have encouraged others to take tremendous strides in the survey of the undiscovered mysteries of the deep sea.
