New discovery on Titanic: Gold necklace lost during the sinking of giant ship, found in wreck


A team discovered a gold necklace among images of the wreckage that no one had noticed since the Titanic sank in 1912. The team, who recently found this necklace in the shipwreck off the coast of North America, hopes to find the owner’s family using artificial intelligence (AI). This insight comes from Magellan, a UK-based deep-sea mapping company that has recently released a series of digital scans that show the shipwreck of the RMS Titanic in never-before-seen detail. The company announced that its impressively high-quality images show a gold necklace made from the tooth of Megalodon, an extinct giant shark species. Richard Parkinson, Magellan’s CEO, described the discovery as “amazing, beautiful and breathtaking”. “It is not widely understood that the Titanic was in two pieces and that there was a 3-square-mile (8-square-kilometer) debris field between bow and stern,” Parkinson said in a conversation with ITV News. mapped out so we were able to pick out those details.” The project collected a massive 16 terabytes of data detailing the debris field, including more than 715,000 images and full 4K video recording. They accomplished this by navigating the wreck some 700 kilometers off the east coast of Canada, then using remote-controlled divers to view the seafloor about 3,800 meters below the water’s surface. The RMS Titanic was an ocean liner famous for sinking in the North Atlantic Ocean after colliding with an iceberg on its maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New York, on April 15, 1912. At least 1,500 passengers died and the wreck sank to the seafloor about 4,000 feet below sea level, about 740 kilometers from Newfoundland in Canada. The spot where the Titanic sank was not fully discovered until September 1985, 73 years after it met its icy fate. Due to existing agreements protecting the site, the public is not allowed to remove any artifacts from the debris and the surrounding bed. But the team at Magellan hope they can reunite this gem with its owner’s family. They use artificial intelligence to locate and contact the family members of the 2,200 passengers on board when the ship sank to identify the person who once wore the necklace. They will also examine the images of the passengers on board to see if they can spot the jewel and whether they can identify its owner using facial recognition technology.
