What was Titanic?
The Titanic was one of the greatest ships of its time. Everyone knows the Titanic, but did you know Titanic had 2 other sisters? If the Titanic had hit the iceberg head on would it have survived? In this website, I will be talking about the Titanic and her sisters with the addition of different ways the Titanic could have avoided its dire situation..
The Titanic was a British passenger liner operated by the White Star Line that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on 15 April 1912, after striking an iceberg. The Titanic sailed on April 10th 1912 and was on its way to New York City sailing from Southampton. She was captained by Captain Smith, who was the most experienced captain that people would kill to sail with him. On April 15th 2:20 AM, the Titanic sank into the depths of the Atlantic Ocean. She carried 2,200 passengers and crew and only 683 people survived. 1517 lives were lost.
There were many coincidences and theories that could have avoided the tragedy. The iceberg was very much avoidable. More lives could have been saved if more safety precautions were taken. The weather that night was also very cold. Could the cold have affected the crows nest? Would they have seen the iceberg had it been less cold? Titanic's structure was so advanced it was unsinkable. Yet it sank still anyway. How could the “unsinkable” sink?
