Revisiting the world's most famous shipwreck


December 16, 2004

In ‘Return to Titanic,’ explorer Robert Ballard revisits the ship, 20 years after discovering its final resting place.

It’s been nearly 100 years since the Titanic sank to the bottom of the Atlantic. Still, the maritime disaster that took more than 1,500 lives continues to fascinate.

Recently Robert Ballard, the man who discovered the ship's final resting place nearly 20 years ago, returned to the site to determine what effect fame has had on the storied ship.

National Geographic followed Ballard back to the famous ship in a television special called “Titanic Revealed.”

His journey is also chronicled in a new book, “Return to Titanic: A New Look at the World's Most Famous Lost Ship.” Ballard was invited on the “Today” show to talk about the book and his visit to the wreck site.
