Dr Robert Ballard, founder of the Ocean Exploration Trust and a professor at the University of Rhode Island, told the audience about how he found the famous ocean liner in 1985.

“I was a naval officer and we had to go to find two missing submarines but couldn’t tell anyone, so we said we were looking for the Titanic,” he said.

“In fact, the Pentagon was upset when I found it. They said ‘you were supposed to look for it, not find it’.”
