R.M.S. Titanic: Video Tour of the Undersea Wreck Site and Google Map

The United States’ National Ocean and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) and Titanic explorer Dr. Robert Ballard collaborated to create this stunning video of the undersea wreck of the R.M.S. Titanic. The ship sunk 100 years ago this month after striking an iceberg in the North Atlantic.

Here’s a Google Map of where the great ship rests.

Robert Ballard discovered the remains of the R.M.S. Titanic, which sunk 100 years ago this month, and he has since returned to capture more and better quality video of the remains of the ship.

In June 2004, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) — Office of Ocean Exploration — enlisted the marine explorer to help study the R.M.S. Titanic’s undersea deterioration. This video is a breathtaking tour of the disaster site on the North Atlantic ocean floor.

At 12,600 feet below the surface, the R.M.S. Titanic lies so deep that remote vehicles (Hercules and Argus) were necessary to gain access to it and to capture this video.
