The world has seen many disasters, which took the lives of countless people. One such famous disaster was the Titanic – The Sunken Giant. More than 100 years ago, when it started off on its maiden voyage, it was stated to be “Unsinkable“. But as fate had it, within four days of its venture, the massive Titanic sank into the waves taking along with it the lives of over 1500 innocent souls. Those innocent souls were just at the wrong place at the wrong time.
The massive ship was made in Harland and Wolff shipyard, in Queen’s Island, Belfast, Ireland by Thomas Andrews. He was the chief naval architect of the shipyard at the time. It was the largest and the grandest ship of the time.
Titanic started out on 10 April 1912, from Southampton and was heading west to New York, carrying 2,200 passengers and the crew members.
On 14th April, just four days into the journey and about 600 km south of Newfoundland, the Titanic hit an iceberg at 11:40 p.m. The impact caused the massive ship to sink on April 14–15, 1912.
At 2:20 a.m. on April 15, 1912, the Titanic sinks into the North Atlantic Ocean about 400 miles south of Newfoundland, Canada.
