  • Vidéo. Titanic : de nouvelles images de l’épave montrent une détérioration avancée

C'est ce que révèlent des images inédites enregistrées début août lors d'une expédition menée par l'explorateur américain Victor Vescovo et son équipe. À 3 810 mètres de profondeur, il a filmé des images en très haute définition de l'épave du mythique Titanic, grâce à une caméra haute performance.

Ce sont les premières images en 14 ans de la carcasse du paquebot, qui a coulé dans la nuit du 14 au 15 avril 1912 dans l'océan Atlantique, provoquant la mort de près de 1 500 personnes.

Ces enregistrements mettent en évidence l'état de décomposition du paquebot et devraient permettre aux experts de mieux déterminer à quelle vitesse l'épave continuera de se détériorer. "C'est une très, très grosse épave, s'est-il émerveillé". Je n'étais pas préparé à ça. "Quand on l'a vue apparaître sur le sonar, elle est vraiment sortie du lot". Certains éléments originels du bateau ont en effet disparu, dégradés par la corrosion ou emportés par les courants.

En découvrant les images, Parks Stephenson, l'historien spécialiste du Titanic, s'est pour sa part dit "choqué". "La baignoire du capitaine est l'un des lieux préféré des passionnés du Titanic, et il appartient maintenant au passé", a-t-il déclaré à la BBC, indiquant que la "détérioration allait continuer à progresser".

"Le Titanic est en train de retourner à la nature". Après cette nouvelle expédition, et alors qu'une mission de sauvetage du navire, protégé par l'Unesco depuis 2012, est tout simplement impossible, les scientifiques estiment que l'épave pourrait disparaître d'ici une vingtaine d'années.
