Nautical Research Group is proud to announce the development of a new, commercially available DVD that will feature high-quality digital video and Dolby sound from our two 2003 and 2005 scientific research expeditions to the wreck site of RMS Titanic. This video is slated for release in April of 2006 and will feature a virtual adventure of diving down to the Titanic without ever getting wet.
Interweaving the complete story of the construction, sailing and sinking of the famed Titanic, we will be leaving port from the Canadian shores of Newfoundland and depart on the Russian oceanographic research vessel Akademik Keldysh, the most advanced deep-diving support vessel in the world. Using the sophisticated submersibles Mir and captained by the famous ocean scientist and explorer Anatoly Sagalevitch, we will descend to the bottom of the Atlantic, where we will explore the wreck site of the Titanic. Once on the ship, we will explore the intact bow section of the ship and observe many features of the ship that played roles during the collision and sinking. Particular observation will be given to the microbial decay that has produced rusticles all along the ship. Moving back toward the debris field, we will see many of the passengers' personal effects, as well as other distinctive articles from the ship. As we conclude our visit to the wreck site, we will see the Titanic's huge engines and the mangled stern section of the ship. This presentation combines the exuberant feeling of observing a historic shipwreck and the reverent feeling of visiting the final resting place of more than 1,500 people.
