    Not so much new, but came across this story on the Britannic-Titanic relation on my Aljazeera app yesterday:

      The Subsea Vessel Island Crown will be engaged for a major mapping of the Titanic wreck next year: http://www.smp.no/naeringsliv/2017/0...ick_articles=3

        I thought the wreck of the Titanic had been all mapped out several times in the past, but obviously, there is still more mapping to do.

        The truly sad thing is that the wreck is about to disappear for good, and with it, all those small and valuable things (not monetary value, but historical value), all gone forever.

            Further to my last post, I would like to hear what you all think about this alternative ending of the movie?

            For me, I actually like this ending a little bit more than the actual ending they chose to go with. We get to see a more sentimental and softer side of the expedition leader, as well as a greater understanding of Rose.

              You asked for an opinion, and I did not like the alternate ending. A few tablespoones too much Hollywood in that recipe. But that's me ;-)

              Yes, you may be very right about the amount of table-spoon with Hollywood in that alternative ending. The one-man-saves-the-whole-world-feeling.

            Interesting video about the engines of the RMS Titanic:

              What do you all think about this TITANIC copy being built in China: Titanic replica (Sichuan, China)

              https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titani...Sichuan,_China)

              I wonder if this is really a serious project as I have little about it in various media... apparently, they have a Facebook page but since I'm no longer using FB, I don't know what they share there.

              https://www.facebook.com/RomandiseaTitanic/

              If this is in fact something really authentic, I might as well have to go to China some day... to Sichuan.

                Surprisingly, there is almost no mention of the fact the Titanic had a largeish fire amidships when she left Belfast and it lasted all the way to her eventual demise which did not have much to do with the iceberg collision; she probably would never had made it to the USA as her central bulkheads were severely weakened by the fire all the way across the Atlantic. Apparently, according to what I have read, the real truth why she sank was kept hidden from the papers. The boss of the White Star Line made sure it would never be made public that a brand new, huge ship, on fire in the middle bulkheads, could sink like a stone, with or without the iceberg's assistance.
