Scientists estimated that the RMS Titanic wreckage could completely disappear by 2030 because of metal-eating bacteria named "Halomonas Titanicae." The bacteria don't literally eat the metal, but damages its surface badly, thus speeding up the corrosion process. The scientists discovered the bacteria in 2010 on the recovered Titanic artifacts.
