The Discovery of the Titanic Wasn't All That It Seemed... Why Were People Searching Down There?

In 1985, explorer Robert Ballard, a Doctor at the University of Rhode Island, and at the time working with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Research Institution, discovered the remains of the RMS Titanic. Besides being one of the most famous wrecks in history, and one that remained a mystery up until that point, the Titanic was also an unknown. No one had seen it since it fell into the ocean depths over a century ago. A great deal of time and money went into the project, but recently declassified details reveal it was much more than just a search for the famous sunken vessel.

Finally, the Freeh report has been released -- you know, the independent, months-long, damning inquiry into the Jerry Sandusky case we've all been waiting for?

Yeah, yeah, Sandusky's in prison.

But the report is important because it really sticks it to Penn State's big four -- President Graham B. Spanier, Senior Vice President-Finance Gary C. Schultz, Athletic Director Timothy M. Curley and Head Football Coach Joseph V. Paterno -- for not reporting Sandusky's actions:

The most powerful men at Penn State failed to take any steps for 14 years to protect the children who Sandusky victimized. Messrs. Spanier, Schultz, Paterno and Curley never demonstrated, through actions or words, any concern for the safety and well-being of Sandusky's victims until after Sandusky's arrest.

Need more info? The Daily Beast has a rundown on the potential legal implications of the report; what the fallout looks like for the Penn State football program; and whether proven or alleged victims might come forward now that the report has been made public.
