New Photos of the Titanic Expedition Released

In Norfolk Virginia, scientists revealed some new and stunning images of the RMS Titanic. The photographs and 3D images come from one of the latest expeditions to the downed ocean-liner now resting two miles below the surface of the North Atlantic. The photos made an appearance in a Norfolk court room where the salvage rights to the ship are still being determined.

The ship, labeled ‘unsinkable,’ struck an iceberg and sank to the bottom of the North Atlantic on April 15, 1912. The sinking remains the greatest non-wartime maritime disaster in all of history and drastically changed the way that shipping traffic in the North Atlantic is conducted.

To view these images, check out this article at FoxNews or these one on the 3D images.

About Jennifer Carey

My name is Jennifer Carey and I am a student and educator of the human condition. I have long studied history, trained in archaeology, and found a passion in the field of education. As a long-time lover of technology (my father bought our family our first Apple IIe when I was three), I love technology and what it can bring to the classroom. I have taught at various Universities for many years as well as educating gifted teenagers through the Johns Hopkins program, the Center for Talented Youth. I am currently the Director of Educational Technology at the Ransom Everglades School (a secular independent school) in Miami, Fl. I also have a few educational podcasts on iTunes from my days teaching at TCU: The Ancient City of Rome, Classical Archaeology (2008), Classical Archaeology (2009), Introduction to Classical Myth, and Ancient Eats. They’re enhanced (so you get the PowerPoints along with the vocal), but please excuse the poor audio editing. Feel free to Email Me or follow me on twitter.
