The reason the Titanic wreckage may completely vanish

Postby Andrew Clarkson » Thu Dec 08, 2016 7:42 am

THE wreckage of the Titanic could disappear completely by 2030, all because of ‘hungry’ bacteria in the ocean.

The once grand Titanic has been sitting 3,800 meters below the surface of the North Atlantic Ocean since 1912 – after it hit an iceberg and sank.


However, because of how deep the wreckage laid, it stayed well preserved until it was finally found in 1985.

While it has been over thirty years since the wreck was discovered, now scientists don’t think the remains of the ship have much time left.

While the deterioration has slowed, in 2010 proteobacteria were found on rusticles that had been recovered from the wreckage.

Well, there's the props, porcelain and a lot of other stuff - won't just be a red smudge in 14 years.

Hello. I agree with Eric. The props will survive for a long time. Have thought many times that one day in the future the props may be put into a museum. But that will be after the descendants of the descendants of the descendants of the survivors are no longer alive.
