A century has sailed by since the luxury steamship R.M.S. Titanic met its catastrophic end in the North Atlantic, plunging two miles to the ocean floor after sideswiping an iceberg during its maiden voyage. Rather than the intended Port of New York, a deep-sea grave became the pride of the White Star Line’s final destination in the early hours of April 15, 1912. More than 1,500 people lost their lives in the disaster. In the decades since her demise, Titanic has inspired countless books and several notable films while continuing to make headlines, particularly since the 1985 discovery of her resting place off the coast of Newfoundland. Meanwhile, her story has entered the public consciousness as a powerful cautionary tale about the perils of human hubris. I would recommend this to anyone who loves the history of America.
The R.M.S. Titanic set sail on April 10,1912 from Southampton, England. It was heading to New York, USA carrying 2,208 passengers.
Did you know: The Titanic only went 26 MPH
On April 14th at 11:40 P.M. the Titanic hit an iceberg after traveling about 375 miles.
2 hours later, the Titanic rose to 45' degree's and the captain knew it was over. He just waited and watched calmly until death. :(
Its almost gone. Their is no hope.
This is where it all ends. The once largest, UNSINKABLE Titanic leaves the Earth in one horrible night of death.
In the morning the Carpathia rescued all survivors.
