The Death of a Titan
- There were no cats brought on board the Titanic, although, cats are often brought in to ships for good luck.
- The Titanic was about as long as the Empire State building is tall.
- At first, the Titanic's design only included three funnels (smokestacks). The funnel towards the stern was added to make the Titanic look more impressive. It was supposed to give the feeling of "power and grace". This funnel only functioned as an air vent.
