Over 100 years since the Titanic sank – and a quarter of a decade since Leo and Kate immortalized its ill-fated journey on film – the ship has a huge place in the popular imagination.
So it’s strange to think of the real vessel, slowly decaying 3,800 meters down at the bottom of the Atlantic, 400 nautical miles off the coast of Canada.
The Titanic is still with us, or at least with whatever dwells in the abyssal plane. And if you would like to visit it – and have €250,000 spare – then you can do so.
US-based ‘civilian exploration’ company OceanGate is currently recruiting divers for its annual Titanic expedition, launching in May 2023.
