Can you believe that we are the first to ride on the unsinkable ship?
Would you shut up! I'm busy working!
Dude, chill out.
Was built with two sister ships, Olympic and Britannic. Was suppose to be a seven day trip from April 10th-17th in 1912. Headed by the famous captain Edward J. Smith.
Iceberg dead ahead!!!
Total of 2224 passengers. Lots of rich passengers with the richest being John Jacob Astor. 1st class ticket costed $4,300 or around $50,000 now.
Turn to starboard!!!
Used marconi wireless to communicate to other ships with morse code. One of the controllers yelled at another ship for being loud over the line of communication. Multiple warnings of ice/icebergs, but only one got to the head of the ship/captain.
It'll be okay, don't worry.
At least it's all over.
It was a moonless night making it harder to see. Had to use their eyes to look out as the binoculars where locked up. The iceburg was spotted at 11:40pm.
Only 32 seconds to react. The officer, Murdoch, ordered the ship to turn starboard and have the propellers in reverse. Hit the iceberg so lightly that most of the passengers didn't know they hit anything, but the titanic started taking on water.
Did you feel something?
Only 16 wooden lifeboats on the Titanic. 1,552 people died in the below freezing water. The Californian was five miles away, but they came due to stopping for the night. Wyatt Miller
