The incident, which happened in 1912, in which the world’s largest passenger ship – Titanic – sank in the North Atlantic Ocean. Not only did the whole ship sank, it even took over 1,500 passengers and crew with it. And, just like many major issues, even for this incident different documentaries and films have been made.
Taking this forward, National Geographic will be coming up with a new documentary, “Mission Titanic”, which will release globally next year.
For this documentary, which has been filmed by Atlantic Productions, the wreck of RMS Titanic has been revisited.
According to the report by atlanticproductions.tv, five dives were made over eight days at the Titanic’s resting place, 370 miles south of Newfoundland, Canada.
The team as tried to capture captured footage and images of the wreck that can be used to create 3D models for future augmented and virtual reality, using high-tech equipment.
“’Mission Titanic’ will air on National Geographic in 2020. Our team of passionate explorers are currently surveying wreckage of the Titanic that sank over 100 years ago as a part of our constant efforts of spotlighting stories of exploration,” a National Geographic spokesperson said.
It has been noted that the wreck, which has been lying almost 4,000 meters below in cold water of one-degree celcius, has become vulnerable to sweeping eddies and everchanging sea currents. Salt corrosion, metal-eating bacteria and deep current action have had an impact on the wreck.
