Under the sea for 110 years, the RMS Titanic can finally be seen in 8K. The images of the sunken ship were released by respondents, with a video posted on YouTube, a week ago.
The details were captured by the company OceanGate Expeditions, which specializes in the use of submersible vessels. They explore and document the seafloor on a visit to the Titanic that took place in early 2022.
For the recording, six explorers went to the wreck site. They used a titanium and carbon fiber submersible, capable of descending to 4,000 meters deep. The group managed to capture the words “Noah Hingley & Sons Ltd” on the ship’s portside anchor, never recorded before.

After successfully recording footage of the sunken ship, OceanGate organizes a tour of the Titanic. The idea is to take people to where the vessel is, about 740 kilometers off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada, next year.
The ship sank in the North Atlantic on April 15, 1912, five days after starting the voyage, while crossing from Southampton, United Kingdom, to New York, United States. About 1500 people were aboard the Titanic and the story became the eponymous film by James Cameron, starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio.
