Hour 2:           What was it like to make some of the biggest undersea discoveries of the 20th Century? We’ll find out this hour and discuss the field of deep sea exploration with National Geographic Explorer-In-Residence Robert Ballard, who is best known for his historic discoveries of hydrothermal vents, the sunken R.M.S. Titanic, the German battleship Bismarck, and numerous other contemporary and ancient shipwrecks around the world. Ballard will appear at National Geographic Live this evening at the AT&T Performing Arts Center Winspear Opera House.

    Interesting hearing about the great flooding of the Black Sea.

    I only caught the last half of the interview with Dr. Ballard. I would love to hear the beginning. Will the interview be posted as a podcast or on demand clip?

    Thank you. I’m to give a speech in class today and wish to quote something Dr. Ballard said.

    Dr. Ballard was inspiring and charismatic in this interview, I will share this podcast with everyone I know…including my husband who is a geologist.

    While the whole broadcast was informative, I was moved by Dr. Ballard’s passion in urging parents to honor the passion of their children and let them explore to find the right career. The best jobs are the ones we love to do – not the ones we have to do.
