  • British government minister says the wreck of the Titanic is the most documented maritime tragedy in history.

  • On the night of April 14th, when the so called unsinkable ship hit the iceberg that caused it to sink, Titanic was on its maiden voyage from the United Kingdom to the United States.

  • Now those two countries have ratified a treaty that's intended to protect the ship's remains.

  • The law gives Britain and America the power to grant or deny licenses for explorers to send Submersibles inside the wreckage and to remove any artifacts they find outside of it.

  • British officials say this will ensure that the Titanic is treated with the sensitivity and respect it deserves.

  • But that wreck, as it sits now, won't stay that way forever.

  • Images from a recent dive there show the ship is sinking deeper into the ocean floor and being corroded by bacteria.

  • There, uh, first impressions.

  • It's big.

  • It is a big wreck.

  • I wasn't fully ready for just how large it was.

  • Mhm, No.

  • Yeah.

  • The future of the wreck, um, is going to continue to deteriorate over time.

  • Uh, it's a natural process.

  • Uh, these are natural types of bacteria.

  • Mm.
