WHAT’S ON THE MENU?
Believe it or not the Titanic used 86,0000 pounds of meat, 3,500 pounds of onions, 40,000 pounds of eggs, 36,000 apples, 40 tons of potatoes, 1,000 loafs of bread, and 7,000 heads of lettuce, but that is just the food they used. They used 14,000 gallons of drinking water. Plus they used 825 pounds of coal per day.
Assembling the Floating Palace
Have you ever heard the name floating palace well it’s just another name for Titanic. Believe it or not it took 3,000 workers to assemble the floating palace. The designer of the Titanic spent 5 years in school. So Far 55 passengers canceled their tickets to get on the Titanic. On the other hand some passengers paid approximately $99,000 ( that’s a large amount of money for just one ticket)
Lucy Winn- Norton was a first class passenger, and her husband Lord Peter- Norton was as well a first class passenger as . Also there was 16 people who were in third class. The Titanic was sailing away to New York City. The maximum number of people the Titanic could hold 3,547 people. The designer only put 15 lifeboats on, but 20 lifeboats could hold 1,178 people, and there were 215 crew members aboard.
Let’s move on to the speed of the Titanic. The top speed of the Titanic was more than 26 miles per hours just think of that the Titanic went way more mph( mph means:Miles Per Hour) than your moms or dads car when they're going to work or something.
They hit the iceberg at 11:40pm. The iceberg cut into a 300 foot slice, ( That is pretty crazy) but the radio operator heard iceberg warnings saying “ Just pasted 3 large icebergs:... After they hit the iceberg four hours later the Titanic sank.
PEOPLE WHO SURVIVED OR DIED
Can you believe 90 percent of the people who died were men. When some people were in the water just a few people were still alive. The water temperature was 2 c. ( WOW! if I were there I would be so COLD!) When the ship cracked in half it was like raining cats and dogs.
