The Titanic sank in the Atlantic Ocean in April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg during its maiden voyage from England to the United States.

That day, an estimated 1,500 passengers died and the challenges sank four kilometers below sea level off the coast of Canada.

The remains were found in September 1985. The authors of these unpublished images arrived at the place 9 months later.

“More than a century after the loss of the Titanic , the human stories embodied in the great ship continue to resonate. Like many, I was transfixed when Alvin and Jason Jr. ventured down and into the wreck. By publishing this video, WHOI is helping to tell an important part of a story that spans generations and goes around the world.

The footage is 1 hour and 21 minutes long and consists mostly of raw footage and no narration as the crew explores the wreck.
