Odyssey Marine Exploration, Inc., will ring the Opening Bell at the NASDAQ MarketSite in New York on Thursday, May 23, 2013, at 9:30 a.m. to celebrate the grand opening of Odyssey's “SHIPWRECK!” exhibit at Discovery Times Square on Friday, May 24. A live video stream of the Opening Bell Ceremony will be viewable at www.nasdaq.com starting at 9:15 a.m. EDT.

"The exhibit features more than 500 authentic artifacts and treasures, a wealth of maritime history and some really neat interactive elements that are fun for all ages which let you experience what it's like to be a shipwreck explorer,” said Greg Stemm, Odyssey's chief executive officer.

The exhibit also features the first public display of silver bars recovered from the SS Gairsoppa, a 412-foot British cargo ship that sank in February 1941. During the summer of 2012, Odyssey recovered a record-breaking 48 tons of silver from the SS Gairsoppa. The Odyssey crew aboard the Seabed Worker is scheduled to depart this week to continue Gairsoppa silver recovery operations.
