Computer Scientists Show Sinking of Titanic in CGI. How It All Happened Blew My Mind.

It’s one of the worst tragedies in world history, up there with the Hindenburg. The supposedly unsinkable Titanic met up with an immoveable iceberg… and it still lays in its final resting place, miles below the surface. This video shows a computer simulation of what that final hour or so must have been like, with the physics of the ship’s destruction and its trajectory toward the ocean floor.

We see the familiar doomed ocean liner hit the iceberg and then sail away toward its fate at the bottom of the sea. Of course, some things are sped up – like the woefully limited number of lifeboats being lowered into the water and being rowed away from the gradually listing ship. The bow is the first part to become submerged… and for a while, it’s tilting a LOT, which would create deadly falls for the remaining people in the back of the ship.

Or course, if you saw the movie, “Titanic”, much of this seems very similar to you, especially the part when the ship snaps in half and tumbles back into the water. I remember when people first thought that the cruise ship had sunken in one full piece. Heck, there was a book called “Raise The Titanic” that had that very premise. Not so… people were shocked when the cameras found the two separate pieces.

It’s also intriguing to see the trajectory of the two pieces as they descended to the bottom of the sea. It took a while for it to reach the bottom, since the water was about 12,500 feet deep. The water pressure at that depth would crush us to the size of a pea if we tried to swim there… also, there’s no light.

The real sad news is that by 2031 or a little before, the ship will have fully rusted away and there will be no sign that it even existed, save for rust-colored spots. That will truly consign it to the history books. What did you think about this? Tell us your thoughts in the comments section. Also, please “Like” us on Facebook.
