Today in 1969 the first ATM debuted in Rockville NY. Invented by Dallas resident Don Wetzel, an executive at Docutel, the original design could only dispense money.  The ability to deposit and provide balances came much later, as did ATM thieves.

On September 2, 1985, the wreck of the Titanic was discovered in the middle of the North Atlantic  by a group of U.S. and French explorers led by geologist Robert Ballard, after a 12-year preparation and search.  Included in the group were scientists from Woods Hole Deep Submergence Lab in Massachusetts and Francais de Recherche pour Lexploitation de Mer.
