NOTICIACRISTIANA.COM- The Titanic, the most famous ship in history, continues to arouse the interest of explorers and scientists, who want to know its secrets; However, not everyone agrees with new expeditions to the place where she sank in 1912, after colliding with an iceberg in the North Atlantic.
A Georgia-based company called RMS Titanic Inc., is the owner of the recovery rights to the shipwreck, and plans to carry out a new expedition in May 2024, as reported by Infobae.
Their goal is to photograph the entire ship, including the interior, and recover items of historical interest, such as the radio that broadcast the distress signals.
US government opposes visiting the Titanic
The United States government opposes this initiative, arguing that the place is a sacred cemetery for the more than 1,500 people who died in the disaster.
Under federal law and an international agreement with Great Britain, the wreck of the Titanic must be treated as a monument, and must not be physically altered or disturbed.
Among the government’s concerns is the possible disturbance of objects, or human remains that may exist. The legal dispute is taking place in federal court in Norfolk, Virginia, which oversees Titanic-related matters.
The company RMS Titanic Inc. He has exhibited objects that he has recovered from the sinking site, from cutlery to a piece of the hull, in various museums and exhibitions.
The company’s planned expedition comes more than two months after the implosion of the Titan submersible near the site of the shipwreck, an incident that claimed the lives of five people.
But this tragedy, in which a different company was involved, and a ship with an unconventional design, has no relation to the legal dispute.
