Discovering Titanic's Remains
From the Series Titanica
After the Titanic sank in 1912, many schemes were proposed to lift the great ship from its watery grave. But there were problems—no one knew exactly where the Titanic had sunk, and, even if they had, the technology to reach the ship, which lay on the ocean floor almost two miles down, didn’t exist. By the 1970s, however, new technologies allowed explorers like Dr. Richard Ballard to search the deep ocean. Finally, in 1985, Dr. Ballard found something . . . Discovering Titanic’s Remains is the thrilling story of how the most famous shipwreck of all time was found. It’s a tale of unbelievable persistence and the amazing technology that revealed the once-grand ship disintegrating on the deep ocean floor. The fascinating content and large-format color images, maps, and fact boxes bring the Titanic’s amazing re-discovery to life. Discovering Titanic’s Remains is part of Bearport’s Titanica series.
