Divers' new evidence may rewrite Titanic storyBreaking News
Well, possibly this: Little less than a year ago, Deep Sea Detectives hosts John Chatterton and Richie Kohler dove four kilometres beneath the North Atlantic's surface in Russian submersibles. Their mission, captured on film in tonight's two-hour A&E special, Titanic's Final Moments: Missing Pieces, was to search outside the known debris field and possibly discover the unknown.
On their final dive, they made what to oceanographers and historians alike was a remarkable find: two large, intact sections of the Titanic's bottom hull in undisturbed condition, with the red bottom paint still visible.
For four months, until earlier this year, a team of marine architects, historians and structural engineers pored over the find: preliminary indications suggest these bottom sections will change our understanding of how the massive ship broke apart, and possibly rewrite the story of the Titanic's final moments. Gee, no one had better tell James Cameron then.
