When a ship it sinks it leaves a path of debris (objects from within the ship or objects breaking off). Depending how deep the vessel sinks this debris can be scattered over a large distance. On a shorter descent, the debris falls more or less vertically. However, as the Titanic sank 21/2 miles a huge debris field was expected.
Now hopefully I can find one from the Titanic = my favorite and greatest section of all time! Cross-section of the HMS Olympic from the August 14, 1909 issue of "The Illustrated London".
Titanic's sunken sister ship "Britannic" lies on its starboard side in the Aegean Sea. Almost 92 years after it sank to the bottom of the ocean the ship could become an underwater museum for tourists
My 10 year old Granddughter is totally obsessed with the Titanic. She reads everything she can get her hands on!
