Titanic Could Disappear Thanks to Metal-Eating Bacteria, Currents and Corrosion
It took decades to find it, but the Titanic is disappearing once again. Metal-eating bacteria, salt corrosion and deep ocean currents are all taking their toll on the haunting wreckage of one of the world's most famous ships. Divers from Triton Submarines conducted the first manned expedition to the site in 14 years and found significant deterioration, especially in the starboard side of the officer's quarters, where the captain's room was. They also found a variety of creatures living inside.
