Titanic-2012: New Undersea Look
at Century Old Stunning Scene

This stunning view of the undersea bow section shows 100-year-old detail as it hasn't been seen before

If dramatic dioramas of historic scenes are you bag, you can't afford to miss getting your copy of April, 2012's issue of National Geographic, I've never seen such stunning photos of this undersea graveyard.

I have an online subscription and the interactivity exhibited in this issue is phenomenal, but thumbs down it is the spectacular photography of James Cameron and Paul-Henry Nargeolet.

Over the years some spectacular dioramas of the supposed undersea wreckage have been developed. These modelers would have given their eye-teeth for these photos.

It is the Titanic like you have never scene her before.

The images, released nearly 100 years to the date since the ship slipped beneath the surface of the Atlantic Ocean, provide an intimate, never-before-seen glimpse of the ruins as they are today.

Obviously from this starboard profile, the Titanic buckled as it plowed headlong into the ocean floor

During August and September 2010, the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution used state-of-the-art robotic vehicles to sweep the area surrounding the wreckage. They snapped hundreds of images per second, collecting what researchers called “ribbons” of data, which where then “digitally stitched together to assemble a massive high-definition picture,” according to National Geographic.

James Cameron's The Last Word

The expedition, which cost several million dollars, is a “game-changer,” according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration archaeologist James Delgado.

“In the past, trying to understand Titanic was like trying to understand Manhattan at midnight in a rainstorm — with a flashlight,” he told the magazine.

Here's The Real Problem

"Now we have a site that can be understood and measured, with definite things to tell us. In years to come this historic map may give voice to those people who were silenced, seemingly forever, when the cold water closed over them.”
