It has been 108 years since the Titanic adorned remembered as the world’s largest ship. People know where the wreckage is, but to date, the wreckage has not been removed from the sea.
Do you know why? No, so let’s tell you about it in detail.
Why is Titanic still at the bottom of the ocean: Why has it not been brought to the surface?
The Titanic set sail for New York from Southampton harbor, Britain on its maiden voyage on 10 April 1912, but on 14 April 1912 collided with an iceberg in the North Atlantic Ocean and broke into two pieces. Its wreck lay at a depth of 3.8 kilometers.
About 1500 people were killed in the Titanic accident. It is considered one of the most notable marine events of that time.
For nearly 70 years, the wreckage of this ship was lying untouched in the sea. In 1985, the wreck of the Titanic was first discovered by explorer Robert Ballard and his team.
The ship where it was sunk, the valley is dark, and the temperature reaches one degree Celsius at sea depth. Now it is complicated for a person to go into such depth and then come back safely.
In such a situation, bringing the wreckage of the ship is very far away, and anyway, the boat was so big and bulky that it is almost impossible to get the debris out at a depth of about four kilometers.
It is said that the debris of the Titanic will not be able to last long inside the sea, because it is melting fast. According to experts, the Titanic debris will completely melt in the coming 20-30 years and dissolve in the seawater.
The bacteria found in the sea are rapidly mutilating its iron structure, due to which it is rusting. According to a report, these bacteria cause rust to eat about 180 kg of debris every day. This is the reason why scientists believe that the Titanic’s age is not much longer.
