Photos : Titanic as never seen before – from Deep down the Ocean
Titanic will forever be a paradox between man’s unlimited power and his ultimate weakness. At its time, Titanic was a geometrical miracle. It was called the “unsinkable”. But it did sink taking with her 1,500 passengers to the deepest end of the ocean on its first sail.
Over the past years, and thanks to modern technology, expeditions managed to study the ship lying at a depth of 4 km underwater and uncovered these exclusive photos:
What you see here is a 3D stimulation made by a collection of real high-quality photos. You can see the bow sitting in total darkness after Titanic split in half. The front half sank first until the bow hit the bottom of the ocean. This is a side photo showing the impact of this collision.
This photo shows the impact of the impact on the broadtail.
As to the reason Titanic was considered a geometrical miracle, this photo shows why:
What you see are 4-stores-tall Titanic’s engines. The ship was thus considered the largest moving man-made object on Earth. The orange color on the engines is a kind of rust-eating bacteria called Halomonas titanicae.
How ironic is that! The huge ship that was once a source of honor for the human power of achievement is now being eaten away be an enemy so small to see with the naked eye.
These are the engines when they were just built.
This is how Titanic looks like now.
Speaking of grandeur, this is an image of the first class outside compartment (built in the beginning of the last century).
This is how it looks like now.
Man made this ship to symbolize his greatness.
In minutes, it became an everlasting symbol of his infirmity.
Praise is to Allah who said:
” Nor walk on the earth with insolence: for thou canst not rend the earth asunder, nor reach the mountains in height”
