Here’s an interesting, yet sad, story on the wreck of the Titanic

Scientists have discovered that a new species of metal-eating bacteria are eating away at the remains of the famous liner.  In 1995, scientists estimated that wreck would survive another 30 years.  Now they believe it is disappearing at a much faster rate.  What a sad thought that the once majestic ship will be reduced to nothing more than a “rust stain.”

This could be good news for the earth’s oceans, though, considering the many other ship wrecks and debris littering the seas.  In a way, this is mother nature’s way of taking out the trash.
