Titanic anniversary

The 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic has resulted in a huge number of news stories referencing Oceanography Professor Robert Ballard, who found the sunken ship in 1985. While most of those stories do not mention URI, many of them do. Among them are stories about a National Geographic documentary featuring Ballard in the London Telegraph, Straits Times, and Daily Examiner, stories about Ballard’s desire to protect the remains of the Titanic in Yahoo News, New York Daily News, Vancouver Sun, USA Today, Detroit Free Press, London Telegraph, Hamilton Spectator, Ottawa Citizen, and Fox TV/Boston, the state of deep sea exploration on NPR’s Marketplace, and a lecture Ballard gave in California in The Desert Sun.
