The Titanic--104yrs After by Paulchris(m): 11:48am On Apr 15, 2016
At 11.40pm on the night of 14 April 1912, on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York, the RMS Titanic struck the iceberg that would ultimately lead to the sinking of the ship less than 3 hours later. At around 2.20am on the morning of 15 April, the Titanic disappeared beneath the surface of the Atlantic Ocean, a disaster that resulted in the loss of more than 1,500 lives, almost two-thirds of the people on board. Titanic Facts aims to tell the story in a comprehensive and clear way, and to help keep the memory of this great and tragic ship, and of her passengers and crew, survivors and victims, alive.
