crimeandpunishment writes “A scientific expedition to the Titanic will create a detailed three-dimensional map of the world’s most famous shipwreck. A ‘dream team’ of archaeologists, oceanographers, and other scientists will spend 20 days assessing the legendary ship’s deteriorating condition, and collecting data and images. They’re calling it the most advanced scientific mission to Titanic since its discovery 25 years ago. A leader of the expedition says this is the first time the wreck will be treated as an archaeological site, with two goals: ‘One is to preserve the legacy of the ship by enhancing the story of the Titanic itself. The second part is to really understand what the state of the ship is.’”
