The Titanic

On April 14, 1912, the famous RMS Titanic hit an iceberg. Even with promises of it being unsinkable, the ship sunk early in the morning of April 15; approximately killing 703 crew members and 812 passengers. Only 705 of both passengers and crew members survived. Some of the well-known people who died are: John Jacob Astor IV, Isidor Straus, Jack Phillips, and Thomas Andrews. Jack Dawson from The Titanic is just a fictional character, but he is still well known for dying after saving Rose.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why did so many people die on the RMS Titanic?

A: With the ship being known as unsinkable, the builder believed they did not need any lifeboats and used the space where the lifeboats should’ve been for the first class’ ocean view. The lack of lifeboats made it where only half of people on board could survive. Another one of the reasons was because the lifeboats were not filled to their full capacity. Some of the boats were filled halfway and others weren’t filled at all. The third reason was because the captain could not slow down in time. The Titanic was going to fast, so the captain could not slow down or turn in time. The last reason I’m going to explain is that no one had or knew an emergency plan. The people and the crew panicked as they were not prepared in an emergency situation.

Q: How long did the RMS Titanic take to sink?

A: It took about 2 hours and 40 minutes for the whole ship to be under water.

Q: Who built the RMS Titanic? How long and how much did it take to build it?

A: The Titanic was operated by the White Star Line and built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast. Thomas Andrews was the architect. It costed about $7.5 million dollars ($400 million today) to build the Titanic and took about three years to build it.
