At 11:40 pm on April 14, 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 2:20 am on the morning of April 15, 1912, the Titanic disappeared beneath the surface of the Atlantic Ocean, a disaster that resulted in the loss of more than one thousand five hundred lives, almost two-thirds of the people on board. This grand form of transportation was said to be the unsinkable ship carried two thousand two hundred and twenty two people, including the crew, which held people of both upper and lower classes. When the ship crashed the social system, which was so prevalent during this time, faltered rapidly due to loss
In the course of human events, and of human history, a lot of tragic accidents have happened and among them, the R.M.S. Titanic. The world 's largest cruise ship, at the time, took a deep plunge into the North Atlantic ocean on the night of April 15th, 1912. The horrifying event killed more than 1,500 innocent people on its maiden voyage, and only about 700 survived the wreck. The ship was going from Southampton, U.K. to New York City.
Fate had dealt unkindly with the great ship and its passengers. The ship 's uncompleted maiden voyage would be its first and only. It was widely publicized that the ship striking an iceberg was the cause of the disaster, and this was obvious to the naked eyes. It, however, went deeper than any iceberg, deep into the world of sinister forces. The real cause of this disaster
When titanic went down 20,000 people died and 720 survived that is sad titanic now lies 700,000,000 meters down at the bottom of the ocean broken in half This is a gif of titanic Titanic survivors were picked up by the carpathia the captain of the ship noticed that people of titanic a were silent he figured that they were bummed out that some of their family died it was true some husbands ,wifes ,moms and dads even kids died mostly because of hypothermia, hypothermia is when someone is so cold that they die,they can be revived by heating them up.

Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of The Lusitania illuminated the horrors of what happened on May 7th, 1915; sorrowful day the British ocean liner Lusitania sank. The amount of research that must have gone into this book to create the atmosphere of the ship is astonishing. Not only does it cover the destruction of the Lusitania, but it also depicts everything that was happening before, during, and after the bombing. This includes what is was like inside the ship, the roles of the crew members, the backgrounds of many characters, the career of the Captain of the Lusitania and the eccentricity of his personality, what the ship looked like, its décor, and the ship 's
In 1997, millions of people gathered into movie theaters to watch one of the most tragic movies of all time: Titanic. Undoubtedly knowing what they will get, the people were willing to go and watch over three hours of a painful story that would end up with thousands of people dying. Hardly no-one, however, would have been willing to spectate the sinking ship in the North Atlantic Ocean – not even safely on the rescue boats. This inconsistency between the experiences looked for in real life and on the screen is commonly referred to as the paradox of tragedy (Smuts, 39). What drives us to seek negative feelings on the screen?
1- Introduction. It was the night between the 14th and the 15th of April 1912. The British ocean liner Titanic, described as " unsinkable " by the builders and the ship-owners, sank due to a collision with an iceberg in the Atlantic ocean , ending with a tragedy that cost the lives of 1517 people ( 2223 in total ) . What went wrong ? How can an “unsinkable” ship sank after only five days ?
In 2012 there were 372.000 drowning deaths. Drowning is a very serious public health problem worldwide. But many people still think it’s not that big deal. We don’t think of drowning when we go swimming. We don’t even know how big the risk is and what can happen to us.
The bomb killed six people and injured over one thousand people during its misfire blast (“Context of '1996-2000”, n.d.). This attack was known at the time to be one of the worst terrorist attacks to ever happened in United States territory. Ramzi Ahmed Yousef, the person who organized the bombing had close ties to Osama Bin Laden, who later was the master mind of the attack in 2001. According to “Context of
Titanic headed to New York with a total of 2228 people on board, including the crew. It was designed to carry 32 lifeboats but this number was reduced to make the deck less cluttered. 1,517 was the number of lives lost, as there weren’t enough lifeboats, and 711 people survived. In April 14th, 1912, Titanic strikes a huge iceberg leading it to sink. I agree with the statement to a great extent, because Captain Smith is the one who is responsible for the ship: canceling the drills and the excessive speed were the most causes that lead to the disaster.
