THGImage4Even in these modern times, people are always fascinated when something tragic occurs. In 2001, New York City was attacked, the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center, and the Pentagon were all attacked, and many thousands of lives were lost. The tragic events of 2001, were 15 years ago, but the fascination with it is still as strong today. In 1912, when the RMS Titanic struck an iceberg, people did not have the same access to the news that people have these days, and wanted to know all they could about not only the Titanic, but the people that survived her sinking.  Here are some fascination facts about the Titanic, and her passengers and crew, that are just as surprising today as they were 104 years ago.

titanicWhenever something tragic happens, the first thing that everyone wants to know is what happened. Even in this day and age, when tragedies happen more frequently, but more often or not, people still have a lot of questions and want answers.  Back in 1912 when the RMS Titanic struck an iceberg, sank, and over 1500 people died, everyone wanted to know all they could about such an unimaginable tragedy. Even while the 705 Titanic survivors were traveling home on the Carpathia, the telegrams were flooding the small ship, and many of them were ignored due to the fact survivors were trying to contact family members.  People were so desperate for any news, they crowded the White Star Line office in New York City, and from there, the office would post big billboards with what little information they could get.  Now even after a century, new information is constantly being discovered. Here are more facts about the RMS Titanic, which also includes the tragic night it sank. [click to continue…]

kmBack in 1912, the world was a different place than. People had a more innocent quality then they do now, and this naivety spread through all the classes. The 20th century was still in its early years, but the 20th century had not really officially begun as modern times know it, with war, famine, poverty, and other hardships. The people of 1912  were living in a fairy tale land that had no idea what a violent, hostile, war-torn world existed, but things were about to change. During the early years of this new century, mankind had been progressing in a way it never had before. In 1903, the Wright Brothers discovered that mankind could take to the sky, and another feat, the automobile, began to be produced thanks to a man named Henry Ford.  With such creations, mankind provided that it was dominant over Mother Nature, but the arrogance of man was about to be shattered.  The Titanic struck an iceberg, and sank to two and a half miles down to the bottom of the North Atlantic, and it shocked the world to its very core. Here are some other startling facts about that night that no one knows about. [click to continue…]

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.
