The world's best-known deep-sea explorer, Dr. Robert Ballard has led or participated in over 110 underwater expeditions, and logged more hours in the deep than any other marine scientist in the world. In 1985, Dr. Ballard and his research team made their most famous discovery—the wreck of the R.M.S. Titanic. As a result of this successful venture, Dr. Ballard founded the JASON Foundation for Education so that thousands of students around the world could share in the excitement of live exploration. He is now president of the Institute for Exploration and a senior scientist emeritus in the Department of Applied Ocean Physics and Engineering at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Ballard’s discovery of the Titanic and his other undersea expeditions are a testament to the pioneering spirit and the marvels of discovery. His combination of team leadership, raw intellect, ingenuity, and daring are proof that anything is possible.
