Transcript of The Titanic
THE OLYMPIC ACCIDENT
-The Titanic is hit by an iceberg on its side on April 14, 1912
-At 2:20 AM on April 15, the ship sinks deep into the Atlantic Ocean
-710 people survived, while 1,500 people lost their lives
On September 20, 1911, the Olympic collided with the HMS Hawke
- The Titanic was a passenger ship owned by White Star Line
- Had a sister ship called the Olympic
- Each ship cost $7.5 million to make, which today would roughly be $174 million
ABANDON SHIP - TITANIC SINKS
THE TITANIC TODAY
MOTIVE FOR SWITCHING THE TITANIC
A conspiracy of titanic proportions.
- White Star Line's pocket took a hit of
£800 000 pounds to repair costs and lost
- Is that enough of a motive? Probably.
- Federal Reserve Bank
To put it in perspective...
£800 000 in 1911 is
~ $90 000 000 today
The Jekyll Island Gang
- Met on Jekyll Island in 1910
- Potentially part of an "Illuminati"
THE SECRET MEETING
- Wanted to make a Federal Reserve Bank that would operate outside of US government constraints
- War chest
- Powerful, influential people opposed to the Federal Reserve
- Getting rid of them all
John Jacob Astor Isidor Straus
2 DEGREES LIST TO PORT
- RMS Olympic collides with the HMS Hawke
- This causes the Olympic to have a permanent tilt to the left
- Titanic had the same tilt
OLYMPIC PROPELLER REPAIR
Two Degree List
- Sink the "Titanic"
- Have a rescue ship waiting
- $$$ PROFIT $$$
- Olympic damaged a propeller at sea and arrived at Southampton on the 28th of February for repairs
- Repairs took place between the 2nd and 4th of March
- But it stayed 3 days longer, leaving on the 7th
- This is when the switch may have occurred
There was an opportunity to ...
SIXTEEN PORT HOLES AND
WINDOWS HAVE DIFFERENT SPACING
J.P. Morgan Canceling
THE RESCUE VESSEL
- The empty ship parked in the ice field near the Titanic's sinking with its engines on standby
- There was radio contact between the ship
Abram Piatt Nelson Aldrich Frank Vanderlip Henry Davison Charles Norton Benjamin Strong Paul Warburg
- Captain Edward Smith did just the same
- It's like they knew or something???
Was able to carry:
- 47 passengers
- 55 crew members
For a total capacity of 102 people
- Captain of the Californian, Stanley Lord, slept on a couch in his uniform as if he was waiting for a call
Was able to carry:
- 2 435 passengers
- 892 crew members
For a total capacity of 3 327 people
As a rescue ship
- A fire was set in a coal bunker deliberately and allowed to keep burning
- It smoldered for a week and was kept from the trade inspector
- They would use the smoke to fake a fire and evacuate everyone if needed
On the night of the incident the Titanic had over 2 200 people on board
- Around 50 (mostly first class passengers) canceled their trip on short notice (close friends and business associate of J.P. Morgan)
- J.P. Morgan had the best suite on the ship and also canceled last minute
- An hour before the Titanic sailed Morgan had his valuables taken off the ship
- The surviving passengers and crew were detained overnight upon returning to Britain
- Forced to sign a pledge under the Official Secrets Act
- They would be prosecuted and never work again if any word were to leak out
- A slight tilt to port or starboard is not unusual for modern ships.
- Many factors can cause tilts on a boat
- In the case of the Titanic it could have been caused by improper ballasting.
- It's very difficult to come to a definite conclusion
- Evidence we couldn't find rebuttals for exists for both sides
- As a group, we deemed the evidence we gathered as inconclusive
- Workers were also working on other ships.
- How would you silence thousands of people (~15000 workers)?
- Workers were told to give information only to the Board of Trade Inquiry
Since the Titanic was a work in progress at the time changes could have
easily been made.
- The Titanic initially had 14 portholes.
- Two more portholes were added to the Titanic
- Two private verandahs and suites were added to the Titanic.
Thursday 28 March
- J.P Morgan wrote a letter announcing that he will be away in Venice on April 23rd
- The maiden voyage was April 10th
-Could not have taken the Voyage and made it to Venice on April 23rd
Too many changes would need to be made to make the swap
Some Differences were...
- The Titanic was four inches longer than the Olympic
-The Titanic had carpeting and flooring tiles that were different than the Olympic
- The wheelhouse is curved on Olympic. It's flat on the Titanic
