James Cameron returns to Titanic for the last time intending to go deeper into the wreck than ever before and film parts of the interior not seen since the night Titanic sank in 1912.
Check out our other stories on the R.M.S. Titanic, too. These include a stunning video, taken during Robert Ballard’s return to the site with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and other agencies. There is newer footage from the remote sub Argus here.
We’ve also posted a videographic by the BBC, a 100-year old infographic and a modern, hand-created infographic from Canadian artist Megan Radddatz showing the proportion of lifeboats on the ship to various unnecessary sundries on board the R.M.S. Titanic.
The videographic is worth posting twice, as a matter of fact. Check it out below.
Here’s a Google Map of where the remains of the Titanic lie deep in the North Atlantic, just at the edge of a shelf, as you can see.
