    The boat snapped in half as it sank. Even if you got it to the surface, it wouldn't float.

    That would depend on how it was raised...

    Nah. Something enigmatic about it still being at the bottom of the Atlantic.

    It's 12,500ft down. There aren't many options.

    It cost over a billion euros to raise and tow the costa concordia, which was only partially submerged and less than a kilometre from the nearest coastline. The Titanic is over 300 miles away from the nearest landmass and at a depth of over 3,500 meters. Even at half the tonnage the prospect of attempting to raise a ship (or pieces of a ship, in this case) is pretty insane.

    It should be raised with British values so that it integrates into British society.

    It's not really a graveyard IMHO - that is on the surface of the ocean. There were very few people still onboard when it sank.
    Also, other ships that might be classified as graveyards such as the Mary Rose have been raised.

    If it is left on the bottom, it will eventually disintegrate, so bringing it back up the bow and stern sections and as much of the rest as possible and taking it home to Belfast, where it could be placed in a special tank and preserved for posterity would be a good thing. The increased revenues that would come from tourists would go towards paying for it.

    This is the 21st century, we need to show that we can do something big ... If the US could raise part of a Soviet sub from 3 miles down in the Pacific back in 1974, surely we can do this... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Azorian
