On the night of Apr. 14-15, 1912, the Titanic struck an iceberg and sank in the icy waters of the North Atlantic. In 1985, a scientific expedition located the wreck at a depth of about 13,000 feet, approximately 470 miles off the coast of Halifax. The legendary British liner claimed the lives of 1,523 passengers. Prior to that fateful night, it had been dubbed "unsinkable."

The British liner was on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York. The largest and most luxurious ship built up to that time, she was 879 feet (268 m) long and 95 feet (29 m) in the beam. Boasting nine decks, the ship was as tall as an eleven-storey building. Although there were four funnels, only the front three were used - the fourth was for decorative purposes only. Each funnel was large enough to drive two trains through it. Nicknamed "the millionaire special," the Titanic was the first ocean liner to have a swimming pool, Turkish bath, squash court and a fully-equipped modern gym. It had everything, ...except an adequate number of lifeboats. The ship with 16 compartments said to be watertight because the bulkheads extended well above the waterline, the ship that would never sink, traveled with a mere 20 lifeboats on board.
