Sadly, the Titanic sank only four days into its maiden voyage after colliding with an iceberg. It wasn’t until the 1980s that people were able to successfully dive and explore the wreckage. This photo taken in the ’90s shows a ship slowly deteriorating. It served as inspiration for director James Cameron to produce the blockbuster hit Titanic.

Explorations of the wreck eventually stopped but in 2019, after 14 years untouched, divers returned to the Titanic to see if it is still intact.
