It was the 15th of April 1912 when the Titanic, the transatlantic English of the White Star Line considered unsinkable, sank in the waters of the Atlantic Ocean after colliding with an iceberg. Since then, the wreck lies on the seabed, and has become over the years – also thanks to the incredible success of the cult movie by James Cameron with Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet in the 1997 – a tourist destination and guided tours, as well as a milestone of our history. Indeed, remember that the sinking of the Titanic caused the death of 1,517 people.
After more than 100 years, the wreck of the ocean liner’s most famous and iconic of the story is likely to disappear forever. According to what was reported by a team of divers and scientists from the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration, within the next 15 years, the Titanic will disrupt completely. As reported by CBSNews, viewing the videos made by the experts, which will be used for the installation of a new documentary signed by Atlantic Productions, it is possible to see the bad state of the wreck, now in the decomposition.
The corrosive action of the atlantic currents, marine flora, and the salt is slowly erasing the history of the Titanic: some parts of the liner are already collapsed and what remains is reduced now to a pile of rust and algae.
Take a tour to the discovery of the Titanic – or at least what’s left of it – is not an experience for everyone. To organize it for several years and now is a tour operator based in London, Blue Marble Private, that offers to tourists the possibility of visiting the wreck in 8 days. With a helicopter you get to board a yacht in the middle of the Ocean, and 48 hours after, the beginning of the dive duration of about 5 hours.
