Robert Ballard's life so far reads like a movie script: Navy commander starts exploring the ocean, discovers the Titanic, finds a nuclear sub on a top secret mission for the Navy, is one of the first humans to see deep-sea vents. Oh, and he loves to teach kids about the ocean, too. Oceanographer Robert Ballard joins us to talk about a life of submarines, underwater robots, and where his next big adventure lies.

He will be the guest of honor at the 23rd Annual Nevada Medal Dinner and Awards Ceremony, held by the Desert Research Institute. The invitation-only event is Thursday April 22 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

Guest:
Robert Ballard, PhD, Prof of Oceanography, U of RI; Chair of The Jason Project; and, National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence
