“These changes are obvious and significant, including the missing Gorgonian Hydroid in the bow orbit,” OceanGate reported this week after Titan’s last dive into a 12,500-foot-deep site.
Ocean Gate Adventure Infiltrated the Titanic for the first time last month and sent back images showing fragments of the ocean floor, such as the frame of stained glass windows and the floor tiles of the ocean liner.
OceanGate is conducting multiple dives and using 3-D imaging technology to record the conditions of the sunken ship in detail. In 2019, another diving team reported that the deterioration of the Titanic appeared to be accelerating.
Here are the three latest videos shared by OceanGate this week:
- A 16-second video of the Titanic facing the stern, showing part of the first-class balcony:
- A 12-second video of the collapse of the foremast of the Titanic a few years ago:
