“I’ve seen enough in my years of studying the Titanic that I am suspicious of the narrative that we’ve become accustomed to over the past century,” Stephenson said.

The scan was carried out in the summer of 2022 by Magellan Ltd, a deep-sea mapping company, alongside Atlantic Productions, who are working on a documentary about the project. 

The ship is currently split into two parts after the wreck was discovered in 1985, with the two parts separated by around 600 metres. This digital scanning gives a new perspective which conventional cameras could only provide snapshots or clips of.

77 year old woman marries herself in wedding of her dreams

77-year-old Ohio woman Dorothy ‘Dottie’ Fideli, has finally had the wedding of her life marrying the person that matters the most – herself. 

Celebrating the love she has for herself at her retirement community in O’Bannon Terrace in Goshen, Dottie revealed that she was once married in a quick courthouse ceremony back in 1965.

Unfortunately, her marriage fell apart nine years later, saying that it was doomed from the start. She told international outlet Today that she had worn a black dress on the day – an omen she took as a symbol for her failed marriage.

Staying single for around 40 years, she felt like she had to do something for herself when at church and discovered she could marry herself after she saw a woman do something similar on a talk show. 

The mother of three decided that, after having went through everything, it was time to do what she felt like doing. Helped by her kids to find a dress and other essential wedding requirements, she accomplished her mission and sealed the deal with herself.
