There are many versions to the story behind the sunken ship; many superfluous and many facts. The picture complied facts is perhaps the best and reliable facts of the never to be seen gigantic RMC titanic ship. Due to the long passage of time, about 100 years this year (2012), the fact about the story of her sinking is rife, some have been adapted in many human efforts; talk about the movies, theater adaptation, etc.
The truth about the fall of the ship as a result of collision is a proven fact, what is however very unsure is whose fault it is. Surely, for something so highly praised and perfectly constructed to have met her waterloo, there must be a human factor to it. Who is therefore responsible; is it the captain, crew member, who? Perhaps the truth will be disclosed in the stories about where the titanic sink.
The story about the location where the sunken ship occurred will not be complete without saying something about the ship itself. The titanic belong to the company called the white star line, a.k.a, the British shipping company. The length is about 882.9ft, created inBelfastIrelandprecisely at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in the year 1911. The length has been established as 882.9ft long, the width is 92.6ft wide and 175ft high. It took the constructors three good years to build what is today know as the largest passenger ship that walloped a whooping seven million, five hundred thousand dollars ($7,500, 000) building cost.
The start off of the construction was in 1908, and the end of the building was 1911. A year later she embarked on her first maiden voyage. The journey began fromEngland, Southampton, to theUnited States;New Yorkto be precise. The ship was large enough to take on 2,228 people constituting: 885 workers and 1,343 passengers that include the rich and elite persons fromAmericaandEurope. The ship was so hallowed and trumpeted to an extent that the Captain was quoted to have said, he cannot imagine a ship of this nature founder (not quoted). Well, it did founder, shamelessly, considering all the resources and accolade accorded to it. So where exactly did this pitiful occasion occurred?
Where the titanic sank
The titanic wonder, filled with people, more than 20 lifeboats, professional crew members and an overconfident captain, leftSouthamptonset and ready for a successful trip that unfortunately became a death trap. Where the vessel sank is a common knowledge, right in the middle of theAtlanticSeaafter colliding with a gigantic iceberg bigger than it. The titanic is submerged 3,625 meters deep in the Atlantic Ocean and is said to be currently located in three hundred seventy five miles (375) ofSt. John.
The Titanic ship is reputed to be he most expensive and largest ship, in which no expenses and resources was spared while constructing it. The question that arise is, why did it have to sink on the very first voyage, when less technically built and expensive ships have been know before and after it to last for a long time?
