Video: Haunting shots of the Titanic under the sea

David Gallo joins us on the show today. He’s an oceanographer at Wood’s Hole Oceanographic Institution.

A few years ago, he was a team leader on an expedition to the Titanic’s wreckage on the bottom of the ocean. The film they made is beautiful and incredibly clear. Check it out:

    The Galapagos islands – the underwater life is so incredibly vibrant – the colors of the fish, sea stars, anemones, and more is so beautiful. From swimming next to nurse sharks, to swimming above manta rays, to playing with sea lions and seeing a penguin dive – it is completely magical and seems like a cartoon world at times. The fish come in shapes and sizes you would never expect. It was the trip of a lifetime I will never forget. And this was all seen and experienced via snorkeling!

    I snorkeled in the lagoon of the Atutaki atoll. Very peaceful until I realized I was swimming near the edge of a mountain.

    Recently scuba dove in Puget Sound with a harbor seal.

    Adventure of a lifetime! Scuba diving is terrifying but exhilarating.

    I highly recommend high school and college students checking out SEA, a program for learning about sailing and oceanography.

    HI – I missed the title of the book the guest [David Gallo] said he read about Scandinavian explorers that partially inspired him to explore. Can someone post that? I’m looking to re-inspire my 9-year old son in that direction.

    I needed to know this title too…Scientist David Gallo said Kon-Tiki by Thor Heyerdahl inspired his curiosity in oceanography. If you would like to listen to this portion of the program, you can start at around 32:00 on the player.
