Importantly, the design of the Olympic and Titanic was not perfect; however, they were not shoddily-built ships thrown together cheaply with cut corners to make a few quid while risking the lives of all who took passage on them.

The idea of finding and raising the Titanic was thought of very soon after the sinking of the vessel. However, the first successful attempt at locating the Titanic Wreck was in 1985 by a French and American expedition led by Jean-Louis Michel and Dr. Robert Ballard. The Titanic wreck was located at a depth of 2.4 miles about 370 miles from Forgotten Point, Newfoundland, 13 miles from fourth officer Joseph Boxhall’s last position reading where Titanic was originally thought to rest. The fallen vessel was located using a side-scan sonar mounted on the vessel Knorr. Ballard returned a year later to conduct the first human dives in the submersible “Alvin”. The expedition was funded by the United States Navy under the private conditions that the wreckage of two U.S. submarines by the names of Thresher and Scorpion were first discovered. The Titanic shipwreck offered interesting facts and information about the sinking of the Titanic as well as artifacts from her watery grave.

When sank in the early morning hours of April 15th, 1912, it birthed many mysteries and theories that still survive to this day. From the question of how Captain Smith spent his final moments on board to the identity of Titanic’s Unknown Child, (solved 99 years later,) many fascinating stories abound. However, one of the most compelling is that of Helen Kramer, a woman who came forward 28 years after the sinking to claim that she was really Helen Loraine Allison, the only first-class child to die when sank out from under her family.

Q: Is it possible that the Titanic grounded on the iceberg instead of sideswiping it?
A: Based upon available evidence, it seems highly unlikely that any damage to the ship’s double bottom caused significant damage that contributed to the Titanic disaster. It has been postulated that because the collision did not feel like a ‘terrible crash’ to many aboard the ship, she must have grounded on a shelf of the iceberg. Grounding on ice is not unheard of. However, there are other explanations for the lack of a strong sensation in the collision: first, the liner had nearly averted a collision, and was only grazing along the berg; second, the widening flare of the hull seems to have very nearly matched the angle of the bow’s turn away from the berg, meaning that light contact could have been maintained; third, much of the actual iceberg damage has been ascertained through sidescan sonar surveys of the hull, and this damage is clearly side damage, not grounding damage.

After just three years, Titanic was finished - a floating city, ready to set sail on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York. On board was a collection of passengers comprising millionaires, silent movie stars, school teachers and emigrants, in search of a better life in the United States.

When the Titanic was launched on May 31, 1911, it was the second of the three sister ships and was only 1,004 tons larger than its sister Olympic. Based on its experience with the Olympic, White Star realized it could sell far more first-class cabins and suites than were available. The solution on the Titanic was to enclose a portion of the promenade deck so as to increase the number of suites and to regard a portion of the second-class cabins as interchangeable with first class. The Titanic cost a reported $7.5 million, which was a phenomenal sum for the time.
