The Titanic is the most famous hip in the world. The tragic story has captivated audiences for decades.


Now, for the first time ever, Magellan Ltd, a deep sea mapping company, with the help of Atlantic Productions, has created a 3-D image of the ship at the bottom of the ocean.


Atlantic Productions says, "Using technology developed and perfected over five years by deep water specialist Magellan Ltd, the exact condition of wreck is revealed and the entire historic site is mapped providing a level of detail never before seen."


Scans of the wreck were carried out over a six-week expedition in the Summer of 2022.


The expedition deployed two submersibles which spent many hours at 3,800 metres below the surface mapping every millimetre of the wreck. The wreck was not touched or disturbed.


RMS Titanic sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on 15 April 1912 after striking an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. Of the estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, more than 1,500 died.
