A team of experts working to "virtually raise the Titanic" with robotic cameras and cutting-edge acoustic technology has released fresh images of the wreck. The expedition, which is probing the wreck to gather a full inventory of artifacts, has used robots to take high-resolution pictures of the ship's bow and probe the surrounding debris field, the AP reports.

The crew still has plenty of work to do producing three-dimensional images of the wreck but they have been forced back to land by Hurricane Danielle, the CBC reports. Officials from Expedition Titanic say they have decided to take refuge in Newfoundland for a few days because of high seas and strong winds and they hope to be able to resume work soon.
