Many historical accounts of this sinking of the RMS Titanic clarify the 882.5-foot-long passenger boat as"slipping beneath the ocean waves," like the vessel and its passengers drifted tranquilly away to sleep, but nothing can be further from the truth.
Based upon years of careful investigation of the mess, which employed subsequently state-of-the-art flooding models and simulations employed in the modern shipping sector, pros are able to paint a gruesome portrait of Titanic's last hours and moments.
Earlier this month, the research on the ship continued as a team of experts completed five manned submersible dives at the site within an eight day interval. Using high tech equipment, the team seized footage and graphics of this wreck which can be employed to make 3D models for future augmented and virtual reality.
The resources will probably help researchers further study the future and past of their ship.The Titanic is at acute decay caused by salt corrosion and metal eating bacteria, Caladan Oceanic, the company overseeing the expedition,'' said in an announcement about the dives. A manned submersible reached underneath of the north Atlantic Ocean in August.
Even the Titanic dive is being filmed by Atlantic Productions to the documentary special,"Mission Titanic", that will air internationally on National Geographic in 2020."The shocking region of corrosion was the starboard side of the officers' quarters, where the captain's quarters were," said Titanic historian Parks Stephenson.
The hull had begun to fall taking staterooms with it.Scientists expect the erosion of the Titanic to last."The future of this mess will continue to deteriorate over the years, it's really a normal process," said scientist Lori Johnsonsaid
