The Titanic

The Titanic was the largest ship of it's time, it contained 16 watertight compartments, and the ship contained about 3 million rivets that were all made of week sub-standard iron. The ships passengers were separated, pretty much the poorer you are the lower you are on the ship, so if your poorer you have a less chance of surviving a crash.
