Titanic sank in 1912 when it collided with an iceberg during her maiden voyage. The wreck could not be located at the time and was not discovered until 1985. The wreck was finally located by a joint French–American expedition led by Jean-Louis Michel of IFREMER and Robert Ballard of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
