Titanic: here’s how it look today 3810 meters deep in the Atlantic Ocean

INTRODUCTION

TITANIC

The story of the Titanic is one of the most fascinating and scary of the 20th century, even for the movies that have been made: but how is the ship’s wreck today just over a century since its sinking? An underwater expedition allowed us to know the conditions of the Titanic, which lies on the backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean at nearly four kilometers of depth: precisely, 3810 meters below sea level. If a few years after the disaster it was thought that no man could ever see the Titanic, of which there was only a metal skeleton in the abyss, today the situation has changed.

But what is the story of the sinking? The ship lay on the seashore shortly after the night of April 15, 1912, destined to no longer move from there, to a depth of about 4,000 meters. The nearest mainland portion was the Atlantic coast of Newfoundland, about 900 kilometers away. Geologist Robert Ballard wanted to devote his existence to the discovery of the wreck; in 1973, they started the research that allowed the Titanic to be recovered thanks to Ballard, who with his staff inspected the abyss on board the Knorr ship.
