The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution has taken stunning fresh shots of the Titanic for the April issue of National Geographic magazine. Forget what you’ve seen before, these new shots will blow your mind.
The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution sent robot vehicles down to the wreck in 2010 to do a complete sweep and capture the amazing images. Side scans and multi-beam sonar were used to capture what looks like an eerie 3D image of the stricken vessel.
On April 15, 1912 the mighty Titanic sunk. The exact events of the fateful day are still somewhat of a mystery. While these new photos may not lead to any additional information about the final few hours of the Titanic, it certainly has the potential stir up the imagination.
Next time your sister, wife or girlfriend mentions what a good movie Titanic was, show them these amazing pictures. A far as we’re concerned, the reality of the Titanic is a lot cooler that Leonardo diCaprio spreading his wings on deck.
