Ek Hern's Independent Learning Log

23 February 2014
Nat Geo Magazine

What I did:
I read an article about the Titanic wreck on the magazine and then watched a documentary about it afterwards.

What I learned:
- Titanic actually could have survived the iceberg collision head-on.

- Titanic fell apart into three different parts.

- The wreck stretches 10 square kilometers.

After numerous pictures and expeditions using remote submersibles with cameras, Titanic is now better mapped than ever before. Also, researchers say that the stern of the Titanic would hold more interest. Titanic also could have survived a head-on collision because only one or two compartments would be pierced.  The Titanic wreck also has been mapped to a 10 kilometers squared area.
