New footage has been released showing the wreck of the RMS Titanic as it’s never been seen before: in full 8K quality, the highest screen resolution currently available, CNN reports.
The video was captured by OceanGate Expeditions on its 2022 visit to the site, which lies 2.4 miles below the surface of the North Atlantic, some 400 nautical miles from Newfoundland, Canada.
The newly released footage opens by panning up the Titanic’s bow, which famously sank first after the British passenger liner hit an iceberg on the night of April 15, 1912.
Features of the ship, such as the name of the anchor maker, Noah Hingley & Sons Ltd on the port side anchor, are now visible.
“I’ve been studying the wreck for decades and have completed multiple dives, and I can’t recall seeing any other image showing this level of detail,” said Rory Golden, OceanGate Expeditions Titanic expert and veteran Titanic diver.
