The Depth Where Titanic Wrecked is Laid is Four Times the Height of Burj Khalifa

The remains of the Titanic rests at approximately 3,800 meters (12,500 ft.) in the depths of the North Atlantic Ocean. The deepness of the remnants can be understood by the comparison that even Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world falls short by 9,700 ft.

The adventurous desire to see the Titanic wreckage took the life of five people in OceanGate Submersible recently. The tragedy of the Titanic goes far beyond when it was hit by an iceberg during its journey from Southampton to New York.

The final resting place of the Titanic laid undisturbed for more than 70 years which was discovered by the US Navy in 1985. Its location is around 350 nautical miles off the Newfoundland coast, around 2.4 miles into the depths below sea level.

The wreckage is lying at an immense depth and going there include huge life risks. The deepest a scuba diver has ever recorded is 1,090 ft. only, and the towering Burj Khalifa cannot compete as the Titanic remains lie 4 times its height in the ocean.
