As you have probably heard, there has been a lot of attention surrounding the sunken ship Titanic recently. This is because it was 100 years ago,  on April 15, that the ship hit an iceberg and sank in the North Atlantic on her maiden voyage between Southampton and New York.

It took more than 73 years before the wreck was found, and the research of the remains of the ship could begin. It is this work, combined with material from National Geographic, that has formed the basis for a recent expansion to the map service Google Earth.

It gives you the opportunity to explore the 3D models of the two pieces of the wreckage in detail, with authentic pictures and videos provided by National Geographic. You can also explore artifacts from the ship that is found on the ocean floor.

To start exploring, download the latest version of Google Earth here, start the program and search for “Titanic” in the search field.
