NORFOLK, VA – A federal judge is attempting to preserve the largest collection of artifacts excavated from the Titanic remains, and one key person is on her side.
An Atlanta company called RMS Titanic, Inc. gathered 5,900 artifacts during six dives down to the wreckage. Previous courts have already decided that while the company has exclusive right of salvage to the ship, they do not get to own any of the items found.
U.S. District Judge Rebecca Beach Smith is expected to rule that the artifacts must be kept together and accessible to the public, effectively eliminating any possibility of them showing up on auction.
It is rumored that Judge Smith was heavily swayed by the testimony of Captain E.J. Smith, the captain of the original Titanic who was discovered back in 1991. As long-time Weekly World News readers may recall, Captain Smith was found sitting in a lifeboat smoking an old pipe about 242 miles southwest of Iceland. He appeared to have not aged a day!
Captain Smith was soon whisked to Oslo to have his identity confirmed, and to be tested and cared for. He never accepted any interview requests, and soon faded into obscurity in the Norwegian countryside. However, it seems Captain Smith has finally emerged to honor and defend the 1,521 people who died in the Titanic disaster.
A court attendee explained, “I think he is trying to atone for what happened to the ship. As captain, he was in charge of thousands of lives and he let them down. By some miracle, he is alive here and now. What else could it be except God’s intervention?”

i wonder if he steers worse now that he is old?
I guess this means the more people you kill, the longer you'll live.
i guess so
what ever he was old when he sailed the titanic so he had to be dead
Maybe the Captain is immortal or he went through a wormhole.
Is Judge Smith a relative of Captain E.J. Smith?
Both of you are wrong.
please write down your source.. or all wht u wrote will be a joke
какого хера тут происходит??? Возьмите власти норвегии за яйца и выпытайте все!
I'm a decendent of Captain E.J Smith and this is just sick. certain people should be ashamed of themselves
Give your full name, please.
His wife and Children Died Aboard the ship…. so either your on his family tree but not a Direct Blood line, Meaning his son had a son/daughter and straight on from his blood, but Since all of his children died your not a direct blood relative, So techincally your not really related hes just at the tip of a opposit branch from you. So tecnecally your are NOT related.
Dont you read your History?
how old is he
I'm not sure, but I say over a 100.
His body was never found after the ship sank.
Have done extensive studies on the tragedy.
