Some people say that the Bow landed 45 miles an hour. Some say without a bump. Some say the Bow skidded into the sediment, digging the Forward hull into the ocean floor. But, if so, how did objects remain where their passengers left them? Wouldn't have all the debris been thrown forward? If the Bow landed gracefully, then how did the Bow dig so deep into the sediment?

How about the sheer weight/mass of the thing! And I suspect there is very little still as left by the passengers.
