titanic at the bottom of the ocean. My husband built the camera in the ROV at upper left. This picture is a composite of thousands of photographs taken at close range. A photo from this vantage point on the ocean floor is impossible.
The remains of the Titanic were found in 1985 by Dr. Robert Ballard, an oceanographer and marine biologist with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. When he located the Titanic, he saw that, as some survivors reported, the ship had broken apart.
