On this day in 1985 the wreck of the British luxury liner RMS Titanic is found on the floor of the North Atlantic Ocean, 73 years after it struck an iceberg and sank 400 miles west of Newfoundland. The Titanic sunk on April 15th, 1912 causing the deaths of 1502 people.

This  year was the Titanic’s 100th anniversary and it continues to fascinate. The move “The Titanic” won all kinds of awards and set box office records. I thought it was pretty dreadful.
