Re: If you could


Have you noticed though, that the so called damage is denied? Funny that, isn't it? Bob Ballard has been villified for suggesting it occurs too. I wonder why?

Re: If you could


hi
I am new to this forum.

Part of me would like to see the Titanic but the other part of me thinks she is a grave and she should be left alone.

I also think the only time anyone should be diveing down to the Titanic is for reseach.

thats all for now

See the two keel pieces that have just been [sign in to see URL] proves that Titanic bottom rode up on the unseen iceberg ledge, that caused the original damage to her.

Re: If you could


I personally, no matter how much I might LIKE to see her, would probably not dive to her, given the chance. I can understand dives with a scientific basis, such as studying how long it takes for sea life to devour wood, or even to study the life down there. But I would just be sightseeing and in the end I don't think I could justify that even to myself.

Re: If you could


Greetings,
I agree with Lights, only for a scientific basis. I would never want to destroy a grave like that, I mean nothing is meant to last forever. I however would want to slow the destruction as much as possible. Thanks for listening. TTYL, Laters.

From,
Robert

I still think that the wreck should without being damaged be looked at and in but only for historical and scientific purposes. It won’t be there forever. It would have been interesting if they had had the same technology to go inside the wreck in 1985 as they do today.

Re: If you could


I agree, Tom, that there should be ongoing documentation and study of the decomposition process, something I believe can be done with minimal disruption to the ship and her dead. This is a unique chance to document an interesting process as it applies to a ship in deep water.

Sadly, Wolfldy, I do not believe much can be done to slow the ship's return to nature, nor given the rapacity of some in the "salvage" community, that may be all for the best. It is my sincere belief that enough artifacts have been brought up from both ship and debris field and it is time to cease retrieval of said artifacts.

Re: If you could


Yes, do you know if there are any plans to maybe salvage any more from the wreck? I agree that enough has been taken and that the wreck should only be looked at now.

I haven't heard anything recent, Tom. Let's hope it stays that way.
