Ocean explorer Robert Ballard takes us on a mindbending trip to hidden worlds underwater, where he and other researchers are finding unexpected life, resources, and even new mountains. He makes a case for serious exploration and mapping. Google Ocean, anyone?
Robert Ballard | Ocean Explorer & former United States Navy | Sept 1, 1985 Ballard discovered Titanic and confirmed that the ship had split in two. | July 12, 1986, Ballard returned with Alvin, a deep diving submersible that could hold a small crew. Alvin was accompanied by Jason Junior, a small remotely operated vehicle that could fit through small openings to see into the ship's interior. Ballard produced a detailed photographic record of the wreck's condition.
An acclaimed underwater archaeologist believes he has found proof of the biblical Noah's flood. Using advanced robotic technology, they unearthed an ancient shoreline, proof to Dr. Ballard that a catastrophic flood event happened in the Black Sea. By carbon dating shells, he established a timeline for that catastrophic event, which he estimates happened around 5,000 BC -- just as the Bible states. God's Word is truth.
