The author reflects on the search for the sunken ocean liner Titanic and other sunken vessels. He comments on finding the Titanic on September 1, 1985, and how he felt connected to both the ship and the people with ties to the ship, including survivors such as Eva Hart, who was one of the oldest survivors when she died at age 91, and that technology will allow the remote exploration of the ship. He mentions finding 40 wrecks in the past two seasons, including wrecks from the Greek classical era.
