National.Geographic.The.Drain.Titanic-1The RMS Titanic sank in 1912, and this year marks the 30th anniversary of when the great ship was found in 1985.  Bob Ballard found the ship on the night of September 1, and it was a huge relief to the team. Ballard, and his team from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute had been searching for almost two months straight for Titanic, and everyone was getting weary and tired. However, as the night shift began to settle in to watch the ocean floor, pieces of debris began to appear. At first, the team thought that the debris was simply garbage, which they had seen hundreds of times, but this was different. The debris was getting bigger, and it was not until the crew spotted one of the lost ship’s famous round boilers with round doors, did they realize what they were looking at. The men and women stared at the screen as more of the wreckage came into view, and finally, someone went to get Bob Ballard. The explorer was just as delighted as his crew, when he saw the wreckage on the screen, but then the reality of the situation came to them all.  The world’s most famous shipwreck had been found, and while it was a cause to celebrate, it was also reminder that they were directly over a place of great tragedy and death.  The crew had a ceremony over the wreckage, which made them all feel a lot better about what they had found. Titanic was found at last, but now there were many questions that needed to be answered. [click to continue…]

chinese-titanic-1For people that are Titanic enthusiasts, the news that Australian billionaire Clive Palmer, was going to make their dreams come true. Back in 2012, Palmer claimed he was going to built the infamous ship, and it would be setting sail in 2016. However, since that time, Palmer has done absolutely nothing to get the ship built, not even signed contracts with the Chinese shipping yard that was supposed to handle the construction. However, all hope is not lost because Titanic enthusiasts can still get to experience what it is like to be on a replica of the most famous ship in the world. There will be a Titanic replica that will be built in China, and it even has  tentative date of October 2017.
