🚩A legend even before she sailed, The RMS Titanic’s passengers were a mixture of the wealthiest, basking in the elegance of first class accommodations, and immigrants packed into steerage. ⏳105 years have passed since the luxury steamship RMS Titanic met her tragic end in the North Atlantic, plunging two miles to the ocean floor after sideswiping an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York. 📽Today, the story of the world’s best known shipwreck continues to have a large following, inspiring many documentary films, several feature films, and countless articles. ⚓️In 2018, The Titanic Survey Expedition will use manned submersibles to document the current condition of the iconic ship to help preserve the history and memory of those that lost their lives on this fateful day. 🔗Dive into history of the legendaryUnsinkableTitanic by visiting http://titanicsurveyexpedition.com/rms-titanic (👆clickable link in bio)

Una experiencia de once días que hasta el momento sólo estaba al alcance de investigadores o expertos biólogos. Por primera vez, el submarino llamado Titán descenderá a las entrañas del Atlántico ocupado por cinco personas de a pie. La empresa privada OceanGate, fundada en 2009, propone esta aventura por 105.129 dólares (unos 92.000 euros), que tiene lista de espera para algunas fechas.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A limited number of Mission Specialists may join the Titanic Survey Expedition to survey the wreck along with experts from the Advanced Imaging and Visualization Laboratory (AIVL) at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) as part of a long-term study to document the condition of the maritime heritage site. 👥Mission specialists join one submersible dive to the wreck site and assist the expedition crew in support roles aboard the dive support ship and aboard Cyclops 2 during a dive. 🗣 “This expedition provides the best opportunity for us to see the wreck first hand, and document the gaps in our knowledge of the wreck.” said Bill Lange, director of the AIVL @woodshole_ocean. ✅Visit the Titanic Survey Expedition website (🔗TitanicSurveyExpedition.com) to learn about the mission to explore the world’s most famous shipwreck with a manned submersible in 2018. #rmstitanic #titanic

La historia del Titanic se escribió así: el insumergible RMS Titanic zarpó del puerto de Southampton (Inglaterra), con destino a Nueva York, el 10 de abril de 1912. Cinco días después, el barco choca contra un iceberg y se hunde a casi 4 kilómetros de profundidad, cerca de las costas de Terranova, Canadá. Mueren 1.500 de los 2.224 pasajeros. No es hasta 1985 cuando la marina estadounidense descubre el paradero del desaparecido barco.
