The sinking of the Titanic by Steven
Transcript of The sinking of the Titanic by Steven
The Titanic was doomed before it even set sail. For starters an author wrote about a ship called the Titan that hit an iceberg fourteen years before the Titanic sank. Also, on a test run on of the boiler rooms caught on fire. The final doomsday the Titanic had was that the crew had lost their binoculars a few days earlier.
The Titanic is probably one of the most tragic engineering disasters in history. If the Titanic had made it to New York still intact it would've been one of the greatest evolution stories of all time. However, since the Titanic sank losing two thirds of its passengers and becoming one of the greatest fail stories of all time.
The Titanic took three years to build, with 15,000 people working on it every day. The company constructing the ship was the White Star Line run by Harland and Wolfe. They had ordered sub-standard iron rivets or bolts which could break ever so easily. Also even though Thomas Andrews only designed the bulkheads ten feet tall Harland and Wolfe insisted that the bulkheads stay that tall to make construction quicker.
On April 14-15, 1912 the Titanic sank to the ocean floor after hitting the iceberg. With the limited amount of lifeboats only 750 would come off the Titanic breathing and alive. The Titanic sinking meant that 1,514 would perish from this Earth.
