Titanic’s 100th Anniversay

Posted on Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

April 14th will mark the 100th Anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. And as much as the 3D version of the mega blockbuster from James Cameron is sure to make millions upon millions… even more exciting/interesting is National Geographics April edition featuring new photos and information concerning the famous ship.

Months of hard work using sonar survey maps has paid off with new, never before seen pictures of the Titanic.  National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration archaeologist James Delgado says of the project:   “This is a game-changer. In the past, trying to understand Titanic was like trying to understand Manhattan at midnight in a rainstorm—with a flashlight. Now we have a site that can be understood and measured, with definite things to tell us. In years to come this historic map may give voice to those people who were silenced, seemingly forever, when the cold water closed over them.”

Very cool!
