Never-before-seen footage of the legendary RMS Titanic showed the wreckage in the highest 8k resolution available.

OceanGate, a commercial expedition group, took the images this year and released a one-minute 8,000-resolution clip of the sunken British ocean liner. The 110-year-old ship was found approximately 400 nautical miles from Newfoundland, Canada, and 2.4 below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean.

The group charges each guest $250,000 to tour the wreckage in a submersible. OceanGate has previously completed two expeditions, with a third scheduled for 2023. The images provided by the team are the highest quality video ever taken of the world’s most popular sunken ship.

“The incredible detail in the 8K images will help our team of maritime scientists and archaeologists characterize Titanic’s decay more accurately as we capture new images in 2023 and beyond. Capturing these 8K images will allow us to get up close and still have a 4K quality that is key for large screens and immersive video projects. Even more notable are the phenomenal colors in this footage,” Stockton Rush, president of OceanGate Expeditions, said in a statement.

The company claims that each expedition is accompanied by a team of historians, scientists and diving experts.

The images show the ship’s bow, port anchor, hull number one, a 200-pound anchor chain, cargo hold, and bronze winch. Vivid images of the decaying railings of the Titanic can also be seen. The group hopes to use their images to determine the ship’s decomposition rate and help archaeologists study the remains.

“I have been studying the wreck for decades and have done several dives, and I don’t recall seeing any other images that show this level of detail. It is exciting that after so many years we have discovered a new detail that was not so obvious.” with previous generations of camera technologies,” said Rory Golden, a veteran Titanic diver for OceanGate.

In April 1912, more than 1,500 passengers and crew lost their lives when the massive ship sank in the Atlantic Ocean after hitting an iceberg. The maiden voyage departed from Southampton in the UK and she was expected to land in New York City. The disaster gained a lot of attention and has been the subject of many movies and documentaries.
