Later today, the National Geographic Society announces the results of an expedition to the Solomon Islands, to look for one of the most famous sunken ships of World War II: PT-109. A dashing, young Jack Kennedy captained the boat, years before he became President Kennedy. For Radio Expeditions, NPR's Neal Conan joined undersea explorer Robert Ballard on the search.
