Proof of human remains at the site of the Titanic?

This year we remember the sinking of the Titanic, 100 years after the tragedy that took hundreds of lives. This week, a photograph has been released that depicts what one federal official claims is human remains, entombed in the mud surrounding the wreckage site. 


James Delgado, director of maritime heritage at the National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration, said, "These are not shoes that fell out neatly from somebody's bag right next to each other. I as an archeologist would say these are human remains. Buried in that sediment are very likely forensic remains of that person."


Well, there are dentures, dental plates, eyeglasses, metal buttons, clothes and pairs of shoes on the ocean floor at the wreckage site. Hundreds died, so you do the math. 


Surprise! At the site of one of the worst tragedies ever, which took hundreds of lives, there are indications of human remains. Wow. Who'd have ever thought it?


Thank you, science.
