With the release of Titanic 3D recently the Mythbusters team have decided to test whether the floating debris that Rose climbed onto after the Titanic sunk could have actually held Jack too thus saving his life.
James Cameron did an interview with IGN recently in which he talked about the conversion to 3D. A minute before the end of the video, the interviewer asks Cameron if he’s aware of the Reddit thread trying to debunk the whole “door couldn’t hold both Jack and Rose” thing. Cameron argues that while sheer surface area may have allowed two people to lay on top, physics would not. It flipped when Jack tried to get on, you see. And the filmmaker says that Discovery Channel’s Mythbusters will be tackling this mystery of buoyancy on an upcoming episode, and he would like to help them prove that he was right.
What do you think, could the floating door have held the two of them?
