The Lost Titanic Is Found
By Jane Runyon
  

1     April 10, 1912, was a red letter day for the British shipping industry. On that day, the much publicized Titanic set sail on its maiden voyage. This ship was the largest, most luxurious, most anticipated ship in years. It was sleek. It was fast. Most importantly, it was deemed the safest ship on the seas. It had so many safety features, builders bragged that not even God would be able to sink the Titanic.
 
2     Four days later, all of the cheering changed to tears. On the evening of April 14, the Titanic hit an iceberg off the coast of Newfoundland. In just two hours and twenty minutes, the monstrous ship sank to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. More than 1,500 people went to their deaths with the ship.
 
3     The Titanic sank in 12,460 feet of water. That's almost two miles below the surface of the water. The water on top of the ship caused a pressure of 6,000 pounds per square inch. This kind of pressure would crush any person or diving vessel that tried to reach the sunken ship. But that didn't stop some people from trying.
