The Titanic breached its hull into an iceberg causing the maiden voyage to sink. The wreck of the RMS Titanic is located about 370 miles southeast off the coast of Newfoundland. The ship is lying at a depth of about 12,500 feet. Some interesting artifacts which were recovered include:
1) An intact deckchair.
2) A rivet of the ship's hull.
3) A pocket watch which stopped working a few minutes after its owner went into the water.
Its location is still being explored today.
People thought that the Titanic was unsinkable. At 11:30pm on April 14, 1912, the unthinkable happened. There was a loud screeching sound as the ship slid against an iceberg. The compartments that were supposed to prevent water flowing into the ship failed. Water started flowing into the elegant boat. At 2:30am, the boat split into two pieces and sank. This video shows how it may have happened.www.youtube.comAn animation from one of Discovery Channel program (I cut the most important scenes and than I connected it to small movie) with J.

The Titanic had a very elegant interior. It had nine decks and was bigger than a fifteen story building. There were carved wood and iron staircases with a glass dome at the top. There was a swimming pool for first-class passengers. The Titanic was like a floating palace.www.youtube.comSUBSCRIBE & BECOME A FOLLOWER OF ODDNESS: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=ObsoleteOddity https://www.facebook.com/ObsoleteOddity The inte...
The Titanic was the largest moving man-made object in its time period. She had powerful steam engines to push her along the water. These are the steam funnels that the generators used to operate the Titanic. Exhaust was vented through Titanic's first 3 funnels, the fourth was a dummy funnel used for ventilation and storage. The generators also produced electricity for the interior of the ship.marconigraph.com
