How much money & time would it take to raise the Titanic with today's technology if a scientist suddenly found out that one of the pasangers?

on the Titanic had a suitcase with a medication that will effectively double people's lifetime (it will cause people to live till age 180 with good health)

this medicine was discovered in Europe by an individual dr who wanted to sell it in America.

    You cannot raise the titanic - cos all there is are loads of bits of it (some bigger than others)

    just a matter that might interest

    in the film "raise the titanic" - the model used in it cost more to make than the original titanic

    It would be much cheaper and faster to develop the medicine from scratch (is such medicine did, in fact, exist) than to raise the ship, which broke in two during sinking and scattered its contents all over the sea floor.

    The Titanic is a large chunk of RUST. It could not be raised with any technology except maybe a vacuum pump. We could however raise the suitcase. Where in the wreckage is it located?

    1. If there was a suitcase like that, they would try alternative solutions to retrieve just the suitcase.

    2. Contrary to popular theory, we can't....in a practical sense....lift a wreck that has been sitting at the bottom of the Atlantic for 100 years. It was catastrophically damaged during the sinking. And, the salt water has taken its toll on the steel. It would, quite literally, fall apart at the first pull towards the surface.

    It's been considered and dismissed. The condition of the titanic is too fragile to be lifted. That and its in several pieces. Could it be dismantled on the seafloor and raised in pieces? Probably. But in your scenario, the medication has long been contaminated and or destroyed by time.

    And it's too much of a what if.

      Uhhh, @el stapler: The plastic bag was not around in 1912. Plastics didn't come around until the '40s. And that was in an experimental phase.
