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 [1], 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.
