Here's a moment in Titanic history and an amazing fact that at least one person regrets: 20 miles away, the SS Californian stopped to avoid ice. 9. False Reports. Here is a fact about the sinking ship that is one of the biggest blunders in titanic history: The first paper to report the sinking of the Titanic on April 16th, was the UK’s Daily Mail. 8. Ships Still Get ‘Iced’ Today. After the Titanic, icebergs continued to be a problem up until today. Just last year, an iceberg ripped a hole in the hull of a Russian fishing boat that was cruising in the Antarctic. The crew consisted of 32 people. 7. Lucky Dogs. Here's an amazing fact about the sinking ship: Beside the 706 crew members and Passengers who survived the tragedy, there were two survivors who you probably wouldn't expect: two dogs 6. Lifestyles of the Rich. An interesting fact and piece titanic history is the amount of money spent to go on this gigantic ship's maiden voyage. The people at JSONLINE tell us that the cost of the most expensive First Class Parlor ticket to New York was $4,350 — about $69,600 today. 5. Booze and Cigars. One of the most interesting facts about the Titanic is the amount of beer, wine and cigars on the ship. Before it became a sinking ship, the people at JSONLINE once again report that the Titanic was stocked with 20,000 bottles of beer and stout, 1,500 bottles of wine and 8,000 cigars for use by first-class passengers. 4. The Iceberg. Let's take a moment to share some amazing facts about the thing the ship crashed into itself, the iceberg. Apparently, before it was sinking ships, the iceberg was spawned from a glacier in Greenland. It was about 100 feet tall and according to the Titanic experts at JSONLINE, the iceberg was warmer than the water Titanic passengers fell into that night. The ocean waters were 28 degrees, and the iceberg was 32 degrees. 3. The Ship Crash. Let's examine some true facts about the ship's crash itself. According to TITANICFACTS.NET, they were only 4 days into their maiden voyage when the crash occurred. They had received 6 ice warnings beforehand, but unfortunately, the Titanic's lookout was not equipped with binoculars to see icebergs in time to avoid the collision. When the iceberg was first viewed, it only took 30 seconds for the big ship to crash. First Officer William Murdoch attempted to turn the ship to swing it past the iceberg but to no avail. The most tragic part of it all was if the Titanic had hit the iceberg head-on, they probably would have survived due to the strength of the bulkheads. 2. Potential Survivors. Here are some interesting facts about the Titanic's surviviors after the ship crashed. According to TITANICFACTS.NET, it took the crew 60 of the 160 minutes to actually get the lifeboats going. Although only 31.6% of the crew and passengers survived, apparently as much as 53.4% could've survived, given the amount of space left in the lifeboats. Also, as if adding insult to injury, JSONLINE says that the Titanic originally was designed to carry 64 lifeboats. To save from cluttering decks, the ship ended up carrying 20 on her maiden voyage. 1. The Pig Music Box. Apparently, a woman on the Titanic named Edith Rosenbaum Russell grabbed a music box shaped like a pig before getting into a lifeboat. She used the music box to calm the children as the rowed away from the ship sinking. The pig has become a big part of the ship's story and was even the subject of a children's book called: "Pig on the Titanic: A True Story". ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Subscribe to Bestie : ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
