It's news that will certainly sadden many: Henrietta Mann, a retired Dalhousie University civil engineering professor, has predicted that the RMS Titanic will disintegrate into the ocean floor in just 25 years from now. Mann's comments come after looking at some of the first-ever 4K images of the ocean liner, and seeing how much it had deteriorated in 14 years.
The Titanic collided with an iceberg on April 14, 1912. The collision caused the ship to sink the following day, resulting in more than 1,500 people losing their lives. The incident was one of the biggest maritime disasters in history.
