The Bedford Institute of Oceanography, Canada's largest center for ocean research, is located in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Opened on October 25th, 1962, it has grown to rank among the most respected research institutions in the world.
This was a very interesting place. They had new equipment they were telling us about how they could view the bottom of the ocean or 'the sea-floor' as they say. We watched a film of how it worked. It showed a bridge that had collapsed many years ago (I forget exactly the date) and even where the Titanic was. .
