Do you remember Leo? From Kate? Sure, who doesn't. We are talking about the Titanic. The navigation monster that died on his first outing. Sad but true. When he went to sea, the wireless Marconi telegraph was a novelty. In fact, they asked for help after using it to play and sent personal messages to the mainland. You know that SMS. Therefore, this tool becomes crucial after the tragedy. And that's the reason why some expeditionaries now want to restore the Titanic's telegraph.
You are against it
A rescue company was given permission to open a hole in his breastplate. They pierce part of his deck and rescue the apparatus that sent the last request for help before the shipwreck. Attempts to rescue items from the ship are controversial. The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is against it. It is believed that the boat is the grave of more than 1,500 people and must be respected.
Only about 700 people survived the shipwreck that morning more than a century ago.
The wireless Marconi telegraph that was on the Titanic was one of the first of its kind. It became not only legendary because it made the last radio transmissions from the ship. It is influenced by the emotional story of its main operator Jack Phillips. He is said to have drowned by his side after refusing to leave the ocean liner.
The company RMS Titanic tries to search. He promised to restore the device.
The voice of the past
“If it recovers, it is conceivable that it can be put back into its operating state. The Titanic radio could be heard again, "he said in documents that were submitted to the court.
An iceberg in the early morning of the 14th-15th centuries. April 1912 crashed into the Titanic. It broke and sank more than 600 kilometers off the coast of Newfoundland. Blocks of ice and bad weather are common. It was a challenge for those who tried to save the people on board.
It was also decades later for the company itself, which now wants to go by telegraph. Previously, he directed salvage work on the wreckage of the ship in the 1980s. They were finally abandoned.
Federal law and a U.S. agreement and the United Kingdom later imposed restrictions. The ocean liner is sunk almost four kilometers deep on the ocean floor. To get there, robots and special equipment are needed.
The judge only allowed a small portion of the cover to be raised to gain access to the interior. It is not known with certainty whether the telegraph is still in the cabin in which it was originally placed.
A recent expedition last year showed that parts of the Titanic have already disappeared.
The jobs require large sums of money. Some US media suspect that they could become an obstacle for those who want to access the Titanic's telegraph. Not only because the company recently emerged from bankruptcy. But also because of the foreseeable economic crisis caused by the corona virus.
