A Titanic scan is underway

Using over 70,000 images which have given details from the liner such as shoes and champagne bottles research teams and divers are hoping to get more detail than ever before. Previously visibility has meant on scant information was given up by the rusted craft but, using this n ew scanning tech they’re getting a full-size three-dimensional scan of the shipwreck. It lies 3,800m (12,500ft) under the Atlantic 400 miles from south of Newfoundland, Canada. Experts will be able to see the ship unobscured by water, and hopes are that they’ll come up with an answer as to why it hit an iceberg. Full story HERE.
