The ship, which was owned by the White Star Line, is resting at a depth of 12,500 feet, 370 miles south of Newfoundland.

The exploration team made five dives to the Titanic over a period of eight days. Resting in bitterly cold water and subject to shifting sea currents, the wreck is deteriorating.

“Salt corrosion, metal-eating bacteria and deep current action are having the greatest impact on the wreck,” explained Atlantic Productions in its statement. “The team observed one area of deterioration was in the officer’s quarters, where the captain had his rooms. Here the hull has started to collapse, taking with it the staterooms.”

Victor Vescovo, CEO of undersea technology specialist Caladan Oceanic and submersible pilot, said that, even with all the deterioration, he was still stunned by the scale of the wreck.
