Farewell, Titanic: Her Final Legacy

    By

    On the 100th anniversary of the Titanic 's sinking, a prominent Titanic researcher offers a final chance to see the ship before it disappears forever The Titanic was the biggest, most luxurious passenger ship the world had ever seen; the ads proclaimed it to be unsinkable. When it sank in April 1912 after hitting an iceberg, killing more than 1,500 people, the world was forever changed and the public has been spellbound ever since. Now, a century later, the Titanic is about to disappear again: its infrastructure is set to collapse in the next few years. In this book, scientist Charles Pellegrino offers what may be the last opportunity to see the ship before it is lost to the seas for eternity. The last book to be written while survivors were still alive and able to contribute details, Farewell, Titanic includes many untold stories about the sinking and exploration of the unsinkable ship. Author Charles Pellegrino provided source material for James Cameron's Oscar-winning Titanic film, which is being re-released in 3D at the same time as the book Includes 16 pages of never-before-published full-color photographs of the sunken vessel Includes all-new information about the Titanic research that has been carried out in the last decade Written by a New York Times bestselling author who participated in the post-discovery analysis of the Titanic 's remains during the expedition that immediately followed Robert Ballard's Titanic discovery in 1985
