There is no way the world would pay for the construction of a large enough fresh water tank to put the Titanic in, along with the other preservation tecniques and chemical. And that would be the only way to totally save the Titanic from her untimate demise. But we are talking probably billions of dollars.

But even if we could find a way to get the funding and technology to raise the remaining hull sections, the Titanic would still suffer from large amounts of damage from her trip up to the surface, as well as her trip back to port. Her interiors would probably crumble to dust, as they are already fragile enough as it is. Can you imagine if they started to dry out?

I would probably cry if I saw her bow section falling apart, rotting away in the sun, and know that us humans did that.

Titanic still holds her honor and nobility the way she is now, still standing upright on the ocean bottom.

Yes, Titanic will be gone forever some day, but it is her destiny. That is what is part of her lasting legacy: A reminder to us not to put ourselves above the powers of God and nature, because if we do, we will be utterly destroyed and taken off the face of the earth, just like the tower of babel.

I will become emotional if I see her finally cave in my lifetime, but I will be comforted at the same time that her story will still live on and educate us.
