Secrets of the Titanic

When the Titanic sank, it took along everything that was with it, including many passengers. At 11:40 p.m. on April 14th 1912, the White Star Line’s ‘unsinkable’ new flagship, the Titanic, hit an iceberg in the North Atlantic ocean. 25 minutes later, Captain Edward J. Smith made the call for the lifeboats to be uncovered, having realised the ship—designed to stay afloat even if three of its 16 bulwarks were flooded—was sinking. In a little over two and a half hours, the unthinkable had happened, and the unsinkable had sunk.

Everyone knows this stuff, right? If you’ve watched the 3 hour James Cameron movie—and let’s face it, everyone has—you know that the Carpathia didn’t arrive quickly enough, that the Titanic snapped in half, and that nearly two thirds of the passengers on board (1,517 out of 2,222) passengers sadly perished in the freezing waters. But there’s a whole lot more to the story than just the headlines...
