The legendary RMS Titanic famously sank (after being deemed "unsinkable") in April, 1912 after striking an iceberg. It has always had a major place in lore, and James Cameron's famous 1997 film brought its story - and some extra, fictitious stories within in - to a whole new generation of audiences.
Submersibles first found and filmed the Titanic in 1985, capturing video of the vessel as it continued to rest on the Atlantic Ocean floor, about 12,500 feet below sea level off the coast of Newfoundland. Additional video has been shot since, using improved technology and tracking the ship's preservation and deterioration as time marches on. The most recent video of Titanic was shot in 2005 until now, when for the first time in 14 years, divers visited the Titanic and shot updated video - in 4K, no less - for use in a future National Geographic documentary.
The divers found that parts of the 107-year-old ship were still in pretty good shape, while other areas were being destroyed by the freezing cold sea currents, salt corrosion and metal-eating bacteria. (Yes, metal-eating bacteria can live 2.5 miles below the surface of the ocean... *gulp*)
Scientists say the ship is definitely being consumed by the ocean. In the meantime, it has become home to a bunch of marine life. They say within three decades, the entire ship will likely fully disintegrate. And there will be more video as that happens. Meanwhile, see the latest on how Titanic is looking down there.
