Reaching Titanic

On September 1, 1985, scientists working on board the R/V Knorr captured the first photographs of the wreck of the RMS Titanic in the North Atlantic beneath more than 12,400 feet of water. This image, taken during a return trip the following year shows the Titanic's rail and deck covered in rusticles. Dave Gallo, WHOI's Director of Special Projects, will speak this Sunday, August 7, as part of the public event Tour the Knorr about the discovery of the Titanic and recent efforts to survey the wreck in high-definition and 3-D video.
