Could there still be bodies in the wreckage??

I'm just watching a documentary on french TV about this anniversary : in fact it's
I've already read a file in a history magazine I recieved in my mailbox (I'm a subscriber) for this anniversary too. Very interestin.
And during my famous week-end, we just play the Kung-Fu Chaos game with a fight which took place on a sort of Titanic model ! And just on saturday, just 100 years after...

I can't get the articles to load for some reason, but I doubt there are still any bodies - aside from bones - left in the remains of the Titanic after all this time. The only way I could see it happening is if some people were caught in an airtight room when the ship went down. If such a chamber existed and wasn't breached during the sinking, it could possibly still preserve some remains.

But the boat, 100 years later, is "starting" to deteriorate a lot so... I don't think it'll be possible to find some bodies anymore...Even with an airtight room I think but maybe one day an expedition will try to find this ?

Sorry you were having trouble seeing the articles. I tried the links again and they seem to be working fine for me. Hope you will be able to see it later somehow.

As far as the bodies go, I kinda doubt there are any after 100 years, but there may be some type of remains that could be examined or something, but after this long and the circumstances of the ships sinking, etc., probably best to just leave things as they are. Jmho.

Yeah, I agree, it would be best to just leave the ship and any remains where they are now. After being underwater for a hundred years, the remaining structure of the ship can't be too stable. If someone goes poking around in it without great care, more lives could be lost. Plus, I'm sure the local ecosystem has probably moved into the wreckage and settled in long ago. There's no telling what kind of damage the plant and animal life of the area might suffer from meddling.

I know Titanic was a remarkable (and shocking) story, but I think the aura surrounding it outgrown its historical importance. Surely there is no point in keep probing the remaints of the ship, nothing useful will surface from that.

Yesterday, April 15th, was the anniversary of the sinking of the great ship Titanic. I think this was something like the 103 anniversary or something close to that. The Titanic has always been a fascinating subject whether you view it as a movie, a documentary, or even perhaps as an upcoming video game:

Remembering all those who lost their lives on this sad occasion. :tombstone:
