>>You would think that that would be an easy exploration. I would love to see that happen. <<
While Ken's paintings are phenomonally accurate, the images are only as good as the most current information and a lot of that is over a quarter of a century out of date. The wreck has changed a lot and not for the better. Some of the structures which were intact back in 1987 are no longer there.
T & O:
The passage of time might allow new technology to be created which could explore the stern area, perhaps an even smaller, worm-like ROV or something similar. The problem is that the Titanic doesn't have time on her side anymore. I would love to see the stern area being explored more as well - taking the exterior appearance out of the equation, it would be interesting to compare what survived inside the stern section as opposed to the bow.
>>Yes, but you would think that the areas where the hull was missing couldn't have changed that much. <<
Why would I think that?
The level of deterioration observed since the ship the last expeditions just a few years ago came as something of a shock. I wouldn't assume anything.
Has there been any attempt to see what's left of the library?
