Explorers Went To The Titanic For The First Time In 14 Years And Their Findings Are Quite Sad :(

Well this was just about the worst news I could wake up to this morning. My beloved Titanic is rapidly deteriorating and there’s little we can do about it. It’s a tough situation. Because on one hand, Titanic is the final resting place for over 1,500 people. It’s a graveyard and sacred spot for families around the world. On the other hand, it’s an important relic in world history and it is sitting on the bottom of the ocean quite literally washing away. Bacteria and rust and micro-organisms are eating away at the ship, and in 20 to 50 years it could all be gone.

So therein lies the question- do we protect it, save it, preserve it? Or do we let nature do its thing and let the ship rest in peace? I wish I had the answer. It’s obviously *possible* with a lot of money and advanced technology to raise it and preserve it, but the question is if it’s the right thing to do.

I hope I win the lottery and can pay for an excursion down to see it before it’s too late. One day, probably in our lifetimes, the final resting place for Titanic will be nothing more than GPS coordinates once again. Sad but also in a weird way, brings closure.

PS: I still want this cracker.
