I couldn't find anything out about this on the web or on this site. Does anyone know what has come of Argo? Is it still around, and where? I guess it's in a corner of Ballard's garage behind the lawn mower. :p

Hahahaha.;) Always handy to have an ROV in your garage!

Last I heard of Argo it was in use with the JASON Project at Woods Hole Oceanographic.

But that was 20 years ago itself, wasn't it?

Not sure if anyone else has thought about it much, but in my view Argo is an inseparable part of Titanic history, and I know I'd much enjoy seeing it in a museum one day. I hope it wasn't parted out.

I doubt Ballard would want anything to happen to Argo. It would be technologically very old school now so I doubt it gets used on many missions anymore but wouldn't be surprised at all if it wasn't used for training exercises or something at an institute like Woods Hole.

Cheers,
