Snapshot: Titanic's Shoes

Following Titanic's discovery in 1985, one particularly morbid thought had people wondering: were there any dead bodies at the wreck site?

Dr. Robert Ballard and his team descended into the murky depths to get an up close look at the doomed giant and - among other things - try to answer that question.

The team found no bodies at the Titanic. What they did find, however, were several pairs of shoes scattered across the ocean floor. Their owners' bodies had been devoured by sea creatures years ago - only their footwear remained.
