After a collision with an iceberg irreparably damaged its hull, the RMS Titanic sank to a depth of 12,500 feet. The wreckage was found in 1985 by Dr. Robert D. Ballard, 370 miles south-southeast of Newfoundland.
The Titanic sank 2.2 miles below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean, which is equivalent to 3.75 kilometers, or 12,600 feet. The Titanic broke in half before it sank, eventually separating the bow and stern by 1,970 feet on the ocean floor.
The remains of RMS Titanic are located off the Newfoundland coast in the North Atlantic Ocean at a depth of 12,600 feet. Robert Ballard located the ship in 1985 and recovered many artifacts.
Titan is 3,200.051 miles in diameter. It the second-largest moon out of hundreds in the solar system and is Saturn's largest. Titan's mass is 80 percent greater than that of the Earth's moon, and its diameter is 50 percent longer than the diameter of the Earth's moon.
At the Titanic's beam, or widest point at the nautical waterline, it measured 92 feet 6 inches. Compared to modern ocean cruisers, this is somewhat small; the Costa Concordia, which foundered in 2012, measured 116 feet at the beam.
Of all the passengers and crew on the Titanic, 1,517 people died during its sinking. This number made up approximately 68 percent of all of the people on board of the ship during its maiden voyage. Of the total casualty numbers, approximately 832 were passengers.
The Titanic sank because it hit an iceberg, which tore a hole in the side of the ship and flooded six compartments with water. Thirty-eight thousand tons of water rushed to fill the ship, which resulted in the ship breaking up and sinking.
