Nearly six decades after the sinking of PT 109, modern technology—and an explorer's zeal—led to its sighting. Robert D. Ballard, at left, led the team that found Kennedy's ship in May 2002. Aboard the research vessel Grayscout, Ballard chats with Max Kennedy, center, and former PT boat skipper Dick Keresey, who joined the expedition. Between them sits the remotely operated vehicle Little Hercules, whose video camera spotted the wreckage 1,200 feet (370 meters) below the surface of Blackett Strait in the Solomon Islands.
