Digital Storytelling

Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in the early morning of 15 April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton, UK to New York City, US. The sinking resulted in the loss of more than 1,500 passengers and crew making it one of the deadliest commercial peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. The RMS Titanic, the largest ship afloat at the time it entered service, was the second of three Olympic class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line, and was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast with Thomas Andrews as her naval architect. Andrews was among those lost in the sinking. On her maiden voyage, she carried 2,224 passengers and crew

Timeline

The Story about Titanic

Why did the Titanic Sink

•The ship was loaded with only enough lifeboats to hold half of the Titanic passengers. There were 20 of them with a total capacity of 1178 people. •Some of the limited lifeboats were lowered to the waters only half-full. •Further facts on the Titanic indicate that the ship received information earlier regarding the presence of ice floes in the vicinity, yet continued to speed full throttle ahead towards tragedy. •Among the property reported as lost on the Titanic were over 3000 bags of mail and an automobile. •Each first class passenger paid a whopping $4,350 for a parlor suite ticket and $150 for a berth ticket. •The ship contained a heated swimming pool, a first for any sailing vessel. •The ship was still so brand new when passengers boarded it on April 10, 1912 that the paint was still wet in some spots
