About the Author:
Dr. Robert Ballard was the first to discover the wreck of the Titanic, on September 1, 1985, seventy-three years after the great vessel sank. He is one of the world’s leading marine geologists and has been instrumental in the development of new underwater exploration technology. Dr. Ballard is a passionate advocate for the preservation of the Titanic as it lies, arguing that salvaging and looting are desecrating the historical wreck. He resides in Connecticut between expeditions.
From Publishers Weekly:
Nearly twenty years after his famous 1985 discovery of the shipwrecked Titantic, the remote viewing technology developed by oceanographer Ballard and his team had progressed such that Ballard could capture the dream he was "just starting to realize" in '85, deep-sea remote viewing with the "cleanest, clearest images... all in high definition." Despite (or because of) decay and ghostly lighting, the submarine images are strangely vivid and colorful, with the power and credence to support one of Ballard's major endeavors, declaring the wreck site an international marine museum (one chapter documents damage caused by private expeditions since '86, another imagines a visit to the museum of 2062). Chapters on the ship's construction and sinking include historical photos of the Titanic and its sister ship, the Olympic, juxtaposed with those same features from their Atlantic grave. Accompanied by commentary from colleagues Dwight Coleman and Jeremy Weirich, this book is a satisfying read with mesmerizing images for armchair voyagers, and a significant excursion into submarine technology and archeology for the more science-minded.
