Expedition Captures World’s First 8K Video Of The Titanic Shipwreck

On one fateful April day in 1912, the Titanic struck an iceberg resulting in the deaths of more than 1,5000 passengers and crew members.

Since that day, the Titanic has become a household name, infamous for tragedy. And since that day, the ship, itself, has been sitting about 2 miles below the surface of the ocean, hardly touched but anything but erosion and time.

Few expeditions have attempted to explore the titanic and photograph it, but a privately-owned exploration company, OceanGate Expeditions, recently took things to the next level by capturing the world’s first video of the Titanic shipwreck in 8K.

The video provides details of the Titanic that couldn’t be seen previously. You can see just how much the ship is disintegrating and the effects that time and the elements have had.

The one-minute-long video pans across the ship, allowing viewers to take in the shipwreck in a way that hadn’t been possible before.

During the 2022 expedition to the Titanic site, the crew also managed to capture footage of the deteriorating chandeliers next to the infamous grand staircase.

If you’ve ever wanted to explore the titanic for yourself and are feeling up for an adventure, you can reserve your spot on the 2023 expedition with OceanGate! Be prepared to fork out around $250,000 if you’re selected to go. Or, you can keep up with them on YouTube and Instagram to see what they find from the comfort of your home – that’s what we’ll be doing.
