The wreck of the ill-fated Titanic ocean liner has been visualised in full for the first time as part of what researchers say is the “largest underwater scanning project in history”.

The first full-sized 3D scan of the Titanic shipwreck, published on Wednesday, may reveal more details about the ship’s fateful journey across the Atlantic more than a century ago.

The model was created with data using deep-sea mapping gathered by two submersibles – named Romeo and Juliet – during a six-week expedition to the North Atlantic wreck site in summer 2022.

In all, the mission gathered 16TB of data from the wreckage that lies at a depth of nearly 4,000 metres (13,123 feet).
