Port anchor of the Titanic still in the same position as when it left Queenstown, Ireland on April 11, 1912. Robert Ballard discovered the Titanic in 1985 and says he has made many more important discoveries--hydrothermal vents deep undersea, new life forms his team discovered in the Galapagos Islands, or ancient shipwrecks buried under the Black Sea.  But only the Titanic generated 15,000 letters, mostly from kids.  Click on the image for Titanic information.

Argo was launched the next day but encountered technical problems. After another six days, the crew was fed up with the monotiny of observing sand, mud and the bottomless ocean.    But on the 1st September 1985 something strange appeared on the Video monitors. A BOILER!!!
