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.

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.
