Ballard narrated the incident several decades ago. In the past, he was the commander of the US Navy and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution scientist. At that time, the US Navy offered him funds and opportunities to search for the Titanic. However, Ballard had to find USS Thresher and USS Scorpion first.

The two ships were two US nuclear submarines which sank in the 1960s. "We know where the submarines were. What they wanted (the US Navy) to do is for me to go back to that location without being noticed or followed by Russia" he said.

When the team finished exploring Scorpion and Thresher, they only had 12 days left on their way to search for the Titanic. "When we found the Titanic, we were very happy, because it was a difficult job, and fortunately we succedd" said Ballard.
