The voyage<br />On April 10, 1912, the RMS Titanic set sail from Southampton on her maiden voyage to New York. At that time, she was the largest and most luxurious ship ever built. <br />She started from Southampton(England), and stopped at Cherbourg, France and Queenstown (Ireland) to pick up passengers. <br />
The challenge to God.<br /><ul><li>"No, not even God can sink the Titanic,” these were the words that the designer along with many other passengers said before it set sail. Unfortunately, not long after the ship set sail in April 14th 1992, 2 hours before dawn of the 15th, the ship hit an iceberg. However, the crew members were confident that the small ‘iceberg’ that had hit the Titanic, only left a scratch. But what was thought to be a small scratch, turned out to a hole on the side of the ship.
The crew, soon after realizing the catastrophe, sent passengers to the deck.</li></li></ul><li>The fate.<br />The hull of the ship was divided into 16 watertight compartments. Had only four of these been damaged, the steamer would have managed to stay afloat, but six compartments had been damaged. As these would soon be filled with water, which would then flood the other compartments, it meant the Titanic was fated to sink.<br />The iceberg tore open a huge hole on the hull of the Titanic, stretching 100 metres along.<br />
The evacuation<br /><ul><li>Passengers started asking why they were sent to the deck, and the crew members would tell them that it was just for safety rules and that they would be back for breakfast.
The third-class passengers had been the last to hear about the collision. Some of them only became aware of the catastrophe when their cabins were already flooded. Soon there was total chaos. Within an hour, 25,000 tons of water poured into the ship.
Women and children had to be evacuated first and hundreds of families got separated.</li></li></ul><li>The sinking.<br /><ul><li>The Titanic as you all may know broke in half and started to sink. It took the ship 2 hours and 40 minutes to sink.
When it tilted, people in the life boats could see groups of almost fifteen hundred people still aboard, clinging in clusters or bunches, only to fall in masses, pairs or singly, as the great after part of the ship, two hundred and fifty feet of it, rose into the sky till it reached a sixty-five or seventy degree angle. The great ship slowly slid beneath the waters two hours and forty minutes after the collision
The sinking resulted in the deaths of 1,517 of the 2,223 people on board, making it one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history.</li></li></ul><li>Survivors<br /><ul><li>Of a total of 2,223 people aboard the Titanic only 706 survived the disaster, and 1,517 perished.
