For the first time, the RMS Titanic is being seen through a completely different lens, not one including Leonardo DiCaprio, as explorers have captured "the very first 8k video" of the ship.
The Titanic famously sank 110 years ago, but now explorers with OceanGate Expeditions are sharing footage of completely new clarity of the ship.
The group shot its footage of the Atlantic Ocean wreckage during an expedition earlier this year and has now released the 60-second clip of the ship.
The clip revealed some never before seen details, according to OceanGate Expeditions Titanic expert Rory Golden.
"I've been studying the wreck for decades and have completed multiple dives, and I can't recall seeing any other image showing this level of detail," Golden said in a press release. "It is exciting that, after so many years, we may have discovered a new detail that wasn't as obvious with previous generations of camera technologies."
One detail Golden said he noticed for the first time was the name of the anchor maker, Noah Hingley & Sons Ltd., on the port side anchor.
The footage also shows off several iconic parts of the ship, most notably the bow, hull number one, and the main deck.
"Also captured is dramatic evidence of decay where some of the Titanic's rail has collapsed and fallen away from the ship," the press release said.
While it is a journey to venture to the depths of the Atlantic, the job isn't finished. As the group shared, the footage will be used to monitor the rate of decay so that it can be used for comparison over the years.
"With the help of scientists, the video will also support identification of species that are observed on and around the Titanic and archaeologists will be able to document elements of the wreck and debris field in greater detail," the group said.
