The first full-scale scan of the Titanic was captured

RMS Titanic has captured our collective imagination for over a century. One of the largest and most opulent ships of its time, the ship was once considered unsinkable. However, in the early hours of April 15, 1912, on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, the unthinkable happened when it struck a large iceberg. Sinking in less than three hours, the 883-foot ocean liner quickly sank to the bottom of the ocean where it now rests.

Earlier this year, a team visited the original site to capture never-before-seen footage of the shipwreck. A few months later, deep-sea expert Magellan made another expedition with Atlantic Productions to scan the entire Titanic. The exact position of the wreckage, now split in two, has now been revealed and the surrounding 3-mile debris field containing unopened champagne bottles and various personal belongings has been accurately mapped.

The entire site was said to be treated with the utmost respect for the bereaved, a wreath-laying ceremony was held and the entire site was left undisturbed. In total, 16TB of data was collected from the ruins with 700,000 images taken from every angle. As the ship gradually disintegrates, new scans shed light on how the ship went down.
