My Heart Will Go On
Theme song from Titanic
Titanic had lifeboat space for less than one third her
passenger capacity, but it was still more than the law required.
Transatlantic steamship travel was a ruthlessly competitive business in 1912.
Titanic was never christened.
Titanic never held a full lifeboat drill.
There was more ice afloat in the North Atlantic
in the Spring of 1912 than at any
time in the previous 50 years.
Titanic had a near-collision
as she left the dock in Southampton.
Titanic's passenger list included some
of the wealthiest people in the world.
The ship builders knew that
Titanic was not "unsinkable."
They knew they were taking a risk.
Standard practice for sailing through
ice was Full Speed Ahead.
After the collision, most passengers were not
aware that the ship was going to sink.
The band played light, cheerful music as the ship sank
Titanic recieved six ice-warnings
the day of the collision.
The lookouts had no binoculars.
Titanic's maneuverability had never been
tested at full speed.
