The ship costed $7.5 million (over $400 million today) to build.

The case of the unnamed ship associated with the Ellen Austin crews: in 1881, the crew of The Ellen Austin, an American ship which used to sail between New York and London, found a mysterious deserted ship. The captain ordered to some of his crew to guide the ship back to New York alongside the Ellen Austin, however the two vessels were separated by a huge storm and the unnamed ship with part of the Ellen Austin crew were gone. The Ellen Austin found the unnamed ship one more time but once again no single soul was on board.

They were very confident that the Titanic could not sink because of its massive size and well designed hull. But it actually came down to the operators of the ship that would be its downfall.

Also, the stacks were just for show and one of them didn’t even work. Thomas had to get the Titanic out
The first reason I won’t re-enlist is the harsh weather. “Why are we sent here to starve and freeze?”(Waldo 151) I overheard Dr.Waldo say. The terribly cold weather is causing me to not want to re-enlist because I want to fight on the battlefield and not die from this terrible weather, and it's even colder because we don't have any shoes and very little clothing.
Titanic was the largest of its time and could expect to be fully booked on its maiden voyage.

Another vessel (Mont-Blanc) stocked with explosives anchors towards Bedford Basin. The Imo was intervening the east path of the Mont-Blanc, who later confirmed with officers, and due to bad reasoning, they are unable to prevent the collision, which ignites an explosion, erupting black smoke alongside thunderous windows that devastate the city of Halifax in minutes.

Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler, head of the Schutzstaffel (SS), intended the camp to house 50,000 prisoners of war, who would be interned as forced laborers. Plans called for the expansion of the camp first to house 150,000 and eventually as many as 200,000 inmates. An initial contingent of 10,000 Soviet prisoners of war arrived at Auschwitz I in October 1941, but by March 1942 only 945 were still alive, and these were transferred to Birkenau, where most of them died from disease or starvation by May. By this time Hitler had decided to annihilate the Jewish people, so Birkenau was repurposed as a combination labor camp / extermination camp.
