Diving to the Queen of the Deep

by Eugene Nesmeyanov

 

The remains of the world’s most famous passenger liner, RMS Titanic, were discovered off the coast of Newfoundland in 1985, seventy-three years after it sank; since then there have been numerous deep-water expeditions to the wreck site.

Yet, not much has been revealed about the details of these operations, until now. Here, Eugene Nesmeyanov recounts all the major Titanic expeditions from 1985 to 2010 for the first time, taking us on a journey alongside the scientists, cinematographers and other specialists who have visited the legendary wreck 2½ miles below the surface of the North Atlantic.

A thorough analysis of the sophisticated technical equipment used is presented, along with historical, biological and other scientific findings, and rare material from official archives and private collections.

This is a really thorough account of the dives aon Titanic with full details of items recovered from the wreck which makes fascinating reading and I would very highly recommend it to any of our readers that have an interest in either the Titanic or deep sea diving.
