It's 90 years this month that the Titanic sank. It took almost seven decades to locate the ship, and little in the way of salvage has been conducted. That will possibly change, and maybe soon. The founder of the ship would like to keep it where it is. The ship is in international waters, and a law making its way to treaty status in the UN doesn't allow something to be salvaged that's more than 100 years old. Chances are good that the treaty will go into effect this year. That may speed up the salvage process for the ship, regardless of the fact that the discoverer of the site would like to see it untouched.
