Deep-sea explorer, Dr. Robert Ballard, recently visited Chattanooga, TN as part of the Tennessee Aquarium's "Our Blue Planet" NOAA-supported Ocean Literacy speaker series. One of the most well-known deep ocean explorers, Ballard is best known for his discovery of the R.M.S. Titanic. A 2003 recipient of the National Endowment for the Humanities Medal, Ballard has spent his career exploring the unexplored waters of the deep ocean and pushing the boundaries of technology. Ballard is a pioneer in the early days of deep-diving submersibles and has reached more than 1.7 students through the award-winning distance learning educational program, the JASON Project. Ballard will be speaking on his latest deep ocean exploration.
In this video clip, Dr. Ballard talks about "Planet Ocean." Many people are unaware of the importance of America's unexplored territories - the Marine Protected Areas of the ocean.
