Out of all of the wrecks on the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, Titanic is probably the most mysterious and Iconic. The Documentary Titanic 100: Mystery Solved aims to reveal secrets about the ship using the state of the art Remora 6000 ROV submersible and a team of scientists and engineers who hope to reveal exactly what happened on that fateful night.
The RMS Titanic was the largest passenger ship in service when it began a maiden voyage on April 12th 1912 to New York VIA Cherbourg, France and Queenstown, Ireland with 2,224 people on board. On April 14th at 23:40 the ship struck an iceberg which would prove disastrous. 2 hours and forty minutes later the ship would be at the bottom of the icy North Atlantic ocean killing more than 1,500 people. It is one of the biggest disasters in maritime history and draped in controversy.
The team in this Titanic documentary hope to piece the events that happened by exploring the seabed about 12,500 feet (2.2 miles) below the ocean’s surface. It is both an extreme engineering and investigative challenge that will test both man and machine.
