The unsinkable ship - the Titanic

The RMS Titanic, a British ship, was built in Ireland beginning in 1909. She was completed in 1912 and her maiden voyage began in Southampton, England on April 10, 1912. She carried 2,224 passengers and crew.

On April 15, 1912, the Titanic (billed as the "unsinkable ship") hit an iceberg in the north Atlantic ocean and sank. More than 1500 passengers and crew were killed - including the naval architect of the Titanic.
