WASHINGTON, March 22. – The National Geographic magazine today released new photos of the liner Titanic just before it meets the April 15 anniversary of the sinking of the ship, whose wreck can be seen now in full scale for the first time.

The scientific publication opens its April issue with a special on the Titanic which include new photographic compositions of the remains of the giant ship now in bed abyssal Atlantic.

For the first time snapshots taken with the use of sound technology allow you to see the view of half the bow resting on the seabed, at a depth of nearly four miles and still retains much of its original form despite having sunk a hundred years.

In a side view of the starboard side can be seen that much of the bow was bent to rest on the bottom and covered with mud so you can leave hidden forever marks the waterway open by the iceberg that hit against the Titanic.

The stern was the worst sufferer by the loss and the passing of the years that have left an unrecognizable converted into mass of iron, which makes the work of experts in analyzing the wreck.

The Titanic was traveling from the British port of Southampton to New York collided with an iceberg on the fourth day of its voyage, which opened a large crack across the bow and the ship broke in two as it sank.

Other images published by National Geographic includes a view of the huge engines that drove the Titanic, and another composition of the bow as it is today in the depths of ocean.
