Titanic Mysteries and Titanic 3D in 2012
April 14 is weird for me and my sis coz we watched the movie Titanic realizing it was April 14, 1912, the famous ship’s sinking anniversary.
I was thinking what to publish, since it’s April 14, Titanic struck my mind. So here it goes…
Titanic, the ship of dreams…
“Titanic was called the Ship of Dreams. And it was. It really was…” –Titanic
The Titanic a.k.a RMS (Royal Mail Ship)Titanic, was a British luxury ship owned by the White Star Line and was built at the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Northern Ireland. It was the largest ship in the world at that time. Luxurious and best among the best, WSL assured its construction to be ‘unsinkable.’ Her passengers were a mixture of the world’s richest and upper-class accommodated with royalty service. Other than the elite, the ordinaries would still feel extra-ordinary.
What happened with the unsinkable Titanic…
The Titanic was designed by the most experienced engineers, and used the most advanced technologies to assure it’s really unsinkable. Since they were so sure it’s unsinkable, the limited lifeboats on it were intended to rescue passengers of other sinking ships.
On April 10, 1912, the Titanic, left Southampton, England on her maiden voyage to New York City. Four days into her journey, at 11:40 P.M. on the night of April 14, she struck an iceberg and sank two hours and forty minutes later, early on April 15. The sinking resulted in the deaths of 1,517 of the 2,223 people on board, making it one of the most famous tragedies in history.
Despite the ship’s extensive safety features, it sank. Controversies and interesting theories started to float about the sinking and about many more other things. Simply because Titanic has unforgettable gigantic history. Apparently, Titanic will remain immortal.
The Curse on Titanic...
One of the mysteries includes the Titanic’s mummy curse. The mummy was Princess of Amen-Ra who lived in 1050 B.C.. After her discovery in the 1890s in Egypt, the purchaser of the mummy has met bad misfortunes. The mummy then was donated to the British Museum where mysterious problems for visitors and staff continued. Eventually, the mummy was purchased by a journalist named, William Thomas Stead. Because the mummy was accident prone, he chose an ‘unsinkable’ ship to make it to New York. The mummy has been hidden under his car fearing it wouldn’t be allowed aboard because of its reputation.
To view the whole story, I recommend reading The Lost Dutchman’s hub
