titanicbowThe RMS Titanic shocked the world when the most famous ship ever struck an iceberg and sank into the North Atlantic. The world at that time was innocent, and definitely not the 20th and 21st century of modern times that society in general is used to. When Titanic was gone forever, the world literally did not know how to deal with a tragedy of this magnitude. Before the Titanic survivors were back in New York City, the streets were lined with people desperate for any news of the almost inconceivable disaster.  How could the biggest ship in the world go down? How could the Titanic, that boasted all the latest safety features, still strike an iceberg? The Titanic sank back in 1912, but the questions about that tragic night keep coming up, and one documentary called Inside the Titanic, shows the disaster in a whole new light that brings a whole different level to one of the world’s most famous tragedies.

THGImage4April 15, 1912 is a day that will always live in infamy as the day that the biggest ship in the world, at the time, the RMS Titanic, struck an iceberg, then slowly sank into the iceberg-filled waters of the North Atlantic. There were 0ver 1500 people still on board the mighty ship as she slowly sank, and for over a century, people have seen recreations of that tragic night or films dedicated to the Titanic herself. However, though many filmmakers have tried to make the sinking of the Titanic as accurate as possible, there was not a lot of information known about that night until the wreck was discovered back in 1985. Once an ocean explorer named Dr. Robert Ballard found the mighty ship, and discovered much about her rusted remains, all sinking recreations up to that point were as from the reality of that horrible night as the great ship herself on the bottom of the ocean.  Even James Cameron, who wrote and directed the biggest movie ever about the ship called Titanic in 1997, said that the sinking sequence was not accurate based on what he found out about the ship as he explored her himself for years after the film came out. One company called, Vintage Digital Revival LLC, has not only been working for years to create the best Titanic game ever, but they recreated the sinking of the Titanic in real time, and it is not only haunting, but extremely accurate.

THGImage4There are all kinds of tragedies in the world, especially in the 20th and 21st centuries. However, back in 1912, they were few, and people had a more basic and positive outlook on things in the world. There were some things that were considered just so terrible that people never believed that it could happen to them, or someone they knew.  In 1912, when the RMS Titanic was built and launched, she was called unsinkable, man’s domination over nature, and other grand names that symbolized that man was superior over everything including Mother Nature herself. Just four days into her voyage, disaster struck, and the world was just as shocked as the 2,228 people that were on board her. For passengers like Thomas Percy Oxenham, that night will always be in his mind, even 40 years after the disaster. In an article published in 1952, Oxenham talks about the night the unsinkable ship went down. [click to continue…]

rare-titanic-7The world’s most famous ship, the RMS Titanic struck an iceberg and sank on the night of April 14th, 1912. The ship contained 20 lifeboats, which would have been enough for at least half of the 2228 people on board, but not even that many were saved. A total of 705 survivors were taken aboard the RMS Carpathia a short time after the Titanic went down. However, if not for the actions of a man named Robert Hopkins, the body count would have been more than the 1500 people that lost their lives that tragic night. This brave man was finally rewarded for his heroic effort that fateful night, and while it came over 100 years later, Hopkins brave deeds will continue to live on forever. [click to continue…]

kmThe night that the RMS Titanic struck and iceberg, and began to sink, not a whole lot of people knew what was going on. The senior officers on the bridge knew the Titanic was sinking, and some of them had been right there on the bridge when the rivets and metal plates scraped against the iceberg. As the ship began to take on water, and began to sink, the crew was alerted that there was a problem. The lifeboats had to be prepared, and soon, passengers were going to be filling up the 20 lifeboats the big ship had on the deck. One crew member that was told to go up on deck was a young man named Robert Hopkins, and by the time the night was over, he would be a hero.  [click to continue…]
