The Titanic As You've Never Seen It Before

As the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic approaches, National Geographic Magazine is unveiling, in their April 2012 edition, new photographs that provide a greater understanding of what happened on that fateful day, April 15, 1912.

Ethereal views of Titanic's bow (modeled by Stefan Fichtel) offer a comprehensiveness of detail never seen before.

Two of Titanic's engines lie exposed in a gaping cross section of the stern. Draped in "rusticles" - orange stalactites created by iron-eating bacteria - these massive structures, four stories tall, once powered the largest moving man-made object on Earth.


The view from above.

As the starboard profile shows, the Titanic buckled as it plowed nose-first into the seabed, leaving the forward hull buried deep in mud--obscuring, possibly forever, the mortal wounds inflicted by the iceberg.
