New Titanic Wreck Photos Surface: Big Pics

Aug. 30, 2010 -- A high-tech expedition to the site of the Titanic wreck has yielded the first photos of the sunken oceanliner since 2004.

Using sonar, 3D technology and an automated submersible vehicle, the group RMS Titanic is leading the expedition to create the most detailed portrait ever of the ship that sank nearly 100 years ago.

Although the team's work is far from over, Mother Nature has put the crew's work on hold as Hurricane Danielle makes its way through the Atlantic. Powerful waves and strong winds have forced researchers back to land until the storm passes.
