Titanic in Color: Photos of One of the Largest Passenger Liners of Its Time Rendered in Full Color

To this day, tales of the Titanic continue to captivate and enthrall people, despite the fact that we are many generations removed from that awful tragedy. The RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that famously sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on the fateful day of 15 April 1912. The luxury ship collided with an iceberg during its maiden voyage, originating from Southampton, UK enroute to New York City, USA.  It was one of the largest passenger liners of its time and was ironically considered by many to be unsinkable. Because of the disaster, the Titanic tale quickly became legend, fixating the public’s imagination and inspiring many popular books and movies. Since the discovery of its wreckage in 1985, interest in the ill-fated liner slightly dwindled. Now a century after its sinking, the Titanic remains an enduring and enigmatic subject.

Thomas Schmid is one such person that has been mesmerized by the tale of this fabled ship that was once pronounced unsinkable. Through his work, we are able to travel back in time to see images of the luxury liner, not as they were taken, but rendered in full color.

Interview with Astronomer and Astrophotographer Phil Hart

Phil Hart Astrophotographer - Interview

Do you have a background in astronomy? What made you decide to go into night sky photography and astrophotography? 

Astronomy and Photography have been together for me from the beginning. Growing up, my parents would take us two kids outside on holidays and try and identify stars and constellations in the sky. Then as a teenager I got access to a couple of film SLRs at the same time as I was making the astronomy hobby my own. I used those film SLRs primarily at night from the start and the two interests have been one and the same for me ever since, just over twenty years ago.
