I was wondering if someone was going to post a rememberance .... been watching the documentaries/docu-dramas all week. Thanks Ed!

 

:salute:

 

They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep. For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof. They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble. They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wits' end. Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven

Looks like James "3D Eco-Man" Cameron finds a new trick to descend to the wreck and confirm their theory. I appreciated his coverage of the Bismarck.

It was revealed not long ago that the primary objective of Robert Ballard's expedition was to locate and survey the USS Thresher and USS Scorpion. He was allowed to look for the Titanic with the time remaining after the other vessels were found.
