Titanic remains found
The Titanic, the glittering flagship of the White Star Line, was speeding across the North Atlantic when it rammed an iceberg and sank on its maiden voyage, in the starlit early-morning early-morning early-morning early-morning hours of April 15, 1912. More than 1,500 died in the worst of man's oceangoing disasters. About 700 were saved. Now, seven decades later, they have found it, 2y2 miles down and not far from where it sent out its last sputtering SOS the first time the new distress signal had ever been used. Those who found it were on a scientific mission, mission, a U.S.-French U.S.-French U.S.-French expedition impressively ac-coutered ac-coutered ac-coutered with such equipment as a robot submarine submarine with video cameras and broad-swath broad-swath broad-swath sonar to scan a hundred square miles of sea-floor sea-floor sea-floor terrain.
