The April 2012 edition of National Geographic magazine features the first ever complete views of the wreck of the Titanic, made from thousands of high-resolution images, in its current state on the seafloor

As the starboard profile shows, the Titanic buckled as it ploughed nose-first into the seabed, leaving the forward hull buried deep in mud—obscuring, possibly forever, the mortal wounds inflicted by the iceberg. (© 2012 RMS TITANIC, INC; Produced by AIVL, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute)
