On Sept 11, 2001, during the 'Ghosts of the Abyss' expedition, a Russian and American crew (including Pellegrino) were at the Titanic. Up to that moment the remnants of the cold war still divided the two crews. By the time the submersibles returned to the surface that day, the two crews were not only one - they had become family.
In October 2001 Pellegrino returned from forensic physics at the Titanic, to forensic physics at Ground Zero. This flag traveled every visit to Ground Zero alongside Pellegrino's father's American flag.
In 2003 the two crews returned to the Titanic to work together again, vowing that no matter what disagreements their governments experienced, aboard the good ship "Keldysh" they would always be family.
On August 18th, 2003 during expedition 'Extreme Life', Pellegrino presented the crew of research vessel "Keldysh" with the Russian Ground Zero flag. - signed by FDNY and forensic physics team.
