The Kid Should See This

How the Titanic sank, a CGI animation

“James Cameron and his team pull together a new CGI of how they believe the Titanic sank and reached the ocean floor…”. In this video from National Geographic, we learn more about the physics of it — how it sunk and broke in half from the stress, its size and weight, falling and hitting bottom in water, and more.

Having already seen National Geographic‘s April 15th, 2012 issue for the 100th anniversary of the Titanic sinking, watching the magazine’s still images turned into this animation was a treat for our kid editorial team.
