Happy Retirement Alvin!

Where Alvin’s retirement is noted and his inspiration is mentioned.

I don’t think that I am alone in remembering the days in the mid-eighties when Alvin and Dr. Ballard were in the headlines around the world. By the time the Titanic was found and the first video images of it lying in the bottom of the Atlantic were broadcast, I was already a nut for wrecks in the bottom of the sea. The Wasa ship and the Titanic were the reasons why I considered Marine research as a career option. I was serious enough that I even considered it during high school. All thanks to Alvin and Dr. Ballard. I ended up a computer scientist and whatnot else. But at times I still wonder what it would have been like…

So, enjoy your retirement Alvin!
