Robert Ballard, Ocean Explorer
He discovered the Titanic shipwreck, the thermal vents in the Galapagos Rift, and submarine volcanoes on the Pacific Rise. He has conducted more than 100 expeditions coaxing secrets from the world's oceans. Famed National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, Robert Ballard spearheads the Nautilus expeditions, open-ended voyages of ocean discovery, sharing his startling finds with the world through streaming video. Ballard will report on highlights of this project, which is revolutionizing exploration under the sea—a realm about which we know less than the moon.
