New Titanic footage shows wreck in ‘highest-ever quality’

New video of the Titanic filmed in the highest quality resolution so far shows an “astonishing level of detail”, according to the company behind the mission.

OceanGate Expeditions released the 8K video on its YouTube channel and said it was “first-of-its-kind footage”.

It said the ship’s bow, the portside anchor, hull number one, and an enormous anchor chain can all be seen.

“One of the most amazing clips shows one of the single-ended boilers that fell to the ocean’s floor when the Titanic broke into two,” said OceanGate’s Rory Golden.

“Notably, it was one of the single-ended boilers that was first spotted when the wreck of the Titanic was identified back in 1985.”

The name of the ship’s anchor maker, Noah Hingley & Sons, is also clearly visible on the portside anchor, said the veteran Titanic diver.

“It is exciting that, after so many years, we may have discovered a new detail that wasn’t as obvious with previous generations of camera technologies.”

The pictures show slight changes in the wreck compared with last year’s mission, said OceanGate, which will be examined by experts to determine the rate of decay.

The Titanic famously sank on 15 April 1912 after hitting an iceberg.

More than 1,500 people died and the wreck – discovered 37 years ago – is some 4,000m deep at the bottom of the Atlantic, about 400 nautical miles from Newfoundland in Canada.
