    Where's the other half? Googling the crap out of it and I can't find any pictures of the other half.

    Global warming would have prevented this.

    They got it done just before the sea reclaims her. Another 10 years there will be hardly nothing left.

    Saw this in The New York Times this morining. Apparently, is shows that the stern section "helicoptered" in rather than going straight down like the bow section. Fascinating stuff.

    BTW, waiting to hear how Peace Warrior will claim the ship was blown up on the surface and the stern section is flattened due to det charges... HH

    I wonder if they will do something cool at the Titanic museum in Pigeon Forge, that is really sort of a neat place if you ever get the chance to go.

    Such a fascinating piece of our history that just never seems to lose interest for me.

    I hope they do. That's just about 30 miles up the road from me and I still haven't gone to it yet.

    I read an article a number of years ago about a metallurgic
    problem with the steel when the ship was constructed.

    Sorry no link..Such a tragedy that gets more interesting
    as the years go by.
