Scientists have taken a unique video of the Titanic sinking and revealed previously unknown details
OceanGate Expeditions, a deep-sea research company, has released the first 8K video of the Titanic wreck. Modern technologies and the quality of the image allowed scientists to examine previously unseen details on the deck and in the bow of the liner.
The footage was posted on the company's YouTube channel. 110 years after the Titanic disaster, this is the first video with such a high level of detail (to watch, scroll to the end of the page).
OceanGate Expeditions expert and diver Rory Golden commented: "It's amazing that after all these years we've discovered something new that we couldn't explore before because the technology didn't allow it."
In particular, the scientists were able to see and examine in detail the famous bow of the ship, on a copy of which Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet stood in the feature film about the legendary liner, as well as the port anchor, the number one hull, a huge anchor chain, each link of which weighs approximately 91 kilograms, the number one cargo hold, and massive bronze spires.
Thanks to this recording, Rory Golden was even able to make out the name of the anchor manufacturer on the port side - Noah Hingley & Sons Ltd.
Scientists have also seen the damage to the Titanic after a hundred years underwater. For example, part of the ship's rail has decomposed and fallen off.
As a reminder, the Titanic sank off the coast of Newfoundland (Canada) on April 15, 1912, as a result of a collision with an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton (England) to New York (USA). This passenger liner was considered unsinkable, as well as the largest and most luxurious by the standards of the time. Of the 2,200 people on board, including millionaires and expats, only 712 managed to escape. Many passengers and crew members drowned or froze to death in the water.
As OBOZREVATEL previously reported, a video of an American woman named Maddie hand-feeding a flock of huge alligators went viral online. Viewers were surprised by how calmly and calmly the carnivorous reptile keeper did her job.
