The story of the “unsinkable” ship has been told through an award winning film, books, artifacts, museum exhibits and rare photos. And now, for the first time, a full-sized digital scan of the Titanic shows a closer look at the world famous wreck that occurred on April 14, 1912.
Magellan, a deep sea research company, produced the scan using mapping technology that provided a three-dimensional view of the 882.5-foot-long ship as if the “water has been drained away.”
“The hope is that this will shed new light on exactly what happened to the liner,” the company said in a statement on its website.
