Famous ?Titanic? is Returns Back To Nature In No Time! What Is The Reason? Let's Find Out!!
Its been nearly 15 years since the very famous Titanic has been drowned in the sea. Divers have been puzzled as to how is the shipwreck deteriorating so rapidly? For that, they had to survey the entire ship which is 3,800m down in the Atlantic.
Few Parts have been still in good condition whilst the other remains have been eaten up by the sea. The decaying began from the starboard of the ship on the side of the office headquarters.
Titanic Historian Park Stephenson had ensured that what he saw during the dive in the deep sea was ?shocking?!
As well all know, the captain?s bathtub has been the most favorite image on the ship among the Titanic enthusiasts. And now, that has been vanished forever all absorbed by the sea.
On that side, the whole side of the deck has been collapsing along with the staterooms, to which the deterioration cannot be stopped for obvious reasons.
The Titanic Sinking Theory:
It is sad to know that finally, the entire ship has been vanishing into the sea, and it is disheartening to even accept that one day it will all go away.
The slopping Lounge roof of the bow section would probably be the next part of the decaying process, said by the historian.
And added that Titanic is returning back to Nature, for which the reason has been the salt corrosion, strong ocean currents and metal-eating bacteria which is attacking the ship.
As we talk of the Passenger Liner, which was the largest ship of its time had hit an iceberg on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York in 1912. Of the 2,200 passengers and crew on board, more than 1,500 died.
The dives took place in a 4.6m-long, 3.7m-high submersible - called the DSV Limiting Factor - which was built by the US-based company Triton Submarines.
Navigating the sub around the wreck, which lies in two main pieces about 600m apart, was challenging.
Bad weather in the Atlantic and strong underwater currents made the dives difficult. Getting entangled with the wreck was also a significant risk for the team.
This though, said expedition scientist Clare Fitzsimmons, from Newcastle University, was a factor in the Titanic's decay.
"There are microbes on the shipwreck that are eating away the iron of the wreck itself, creating 'rusticle' structures, which is a much weaker form of the metal," she said.
These rusticles - stalactites of rust hanging off the wreck - are so fragile that they can crumble into a cloud of dust if disturbed. The scientists are also figuring out how different types of metals erode in the ship metal and to assess how time Titanic is left with.
