    i agree with you but please read the entire story
    (In 1996 he even tried, failing, to re-emerge a part of it, in front of spectators who had $ 5,000 apiece for the show.) reading comprehension plays a big part,

    You should then learn how by studying the history of archaeology. Money always played a part and removing what ever could be transported, often by "donations", played a big part of what is now a huge industry that benefits those already interested in the subject and new people interested in learning about history. A rust pile on the ocean floor benefits nobody.

    Looting is a term used often by the jealous, uninformed, serial whiners, and others not a part of anything useful but compelled to post anyway.

    BTW, love that looted 70 Duster, my toy is a 68 Impala SS 396 convertible looted from an estate in NC in 98:D
    To each their own.

    I wish them success. I like the idea of retrieving the radio.

    Wonderful video. I do find it interesting that the fellow mentions that Marconi "used" others ideas to put together a radio. In fact Marconi stole 17 patents held by Tesla, which is why Tesla was given credit (posthumously) for truly inventing radio some years back. Recovering this radio is important so it is retrieved before the entire ship is nothing but a lump on the sea floor.

    I disagree. Any notes taken by the radio operators would nearly certainly be lost by now. There's a photo of the radio room and a well documented "replica" in the Olympic. There's nothing of historical value really. I guess someone could say that this is the rotted and rusty bits left of the Titanic radio. That's a lot of risk for what seems like little reward. Send another underwater drone and take some more pictures, that should be all we really need.

    It never ceases to amaze me as to how people can think of new ways of wasting time and money. I would think that people could be better served by putting an end to the unnecessary starvation and needless wars and conflicts going on throughout the world!

    Hello WA2LXB.

    Thanks for your comment.
    Who are the people on YOUTUBE?
    I'm curious.
    Peace is the best.

    I want to keep it for future generations.

    Excuse me. I am studying English.
    Does it make sense?

    Why don't they just leave the boat and its contents alone. Bringing back that radio is going to prove nothing --- leave the whole works rest in peace...
