The Titanic, as its name implies sought to become the boat more large and impressive history, objective achieved by having space for more than three thousand people on board. It is usually to blame the wreck to the bad construction of the ship when in reality was the lack of life and relief elements which led to the death more than thousand of those people who traveled on the ship. Designers and builders of the Titanic did not contemplate as real possibility the eventual location of shipwreck and total collapse, by which means relief was not appropriate and just.
Plus size, Titanic noted in his time for the wealth and luxury of its construction as well as its decoration. The same may be considered a predecessor of the current cruisers since it had numerous services and spaces to be enjoyed (mostly) by high social class passengers (although also traveled most lowly resource in it). This situation had as main aim providing passengers with a trip that, in addition to being safe, it was unforgettable.
The night of April 14, 1912, the Titanic received numerous warnings about the presence of large numbers of icebergs in the ocean but both Captain Edward John Smith and makers of radios and message systems, downplayed the warnings for being calm and quiet waters. At midnight, the boat collided on one of its sides with a gigantic iceberg, which caused damages of such magnitude that boat had stopped in the middle of the ocean. Forty hours later, and in the absence of immediate assistance from the nearest ships, the ship sank on its bow, then split the middle and end so sinking completely in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. This horrible tragedy made that only around of 700 people they could embark on rescue boats, leaving close to 1500 more adrift in the frigid Ocean.
