Oceanic Steam Navigation Spot

29 years ago, at just a bit past midnight on September 1st, 1985 on what otherwise would have been one of the last days of the expedition, the shift watching the video feed coming back from the remote controlled deep sea vehicle Argo began to notice what looked like debris beginning to appear, then boom. The unmistakable image of one of the Titanic’s triple furnace(actually most boilers had 6 furnaces, with 3 on each end)boilers appeared. After 73 lonely years over two miles below the ocean’s surface, the Titanic had once again had contact with people. A joint American-French team led by Dr. Robert Ballard had finally done what several before them had failed at, they found the legendary ship, and the found ship in the bow section at least was sitting relatively intact and up right. One thing that may have made the wreck so hard to discover is that when Ballard’s team did finally come across it, they found it to be around a dozen miles off of the distress position the Titanic’s crew was giving off that fateful night.

    And the funny thing is, Ballard wasn’t supposed to find it. His involvement was just a cover story for the search of two...
