Titanic Was Found During Secret Cold War Navy Mission

Read how National Geographic revealed the clandestine military project that led to the discovery of the famed shipwreck

The 1985 discovery of the Titanic stemmed from a secret United States Navy investigation of two wrecked nuclear submarines, according to the oceanographer who found the infamous ocean liner.

Pieces of this Cold War tale have been known since the mid-1990s, but more complete details are now coming to light, said Titanic's discoverer, Robert Ballard.

Neat high-tech cloak & dagger stuff in the deep North Atlantic. Reminds me of the Hughes Glomar Explorer to attempt to raise the sunken Sovoet sub K-129 from the deep Pacofic:
