About the Titanic
The RMS Titanic is easily one of the most famous and notable ships in modern history. It was capable of hold over 2,200 passengers and was seen as the perfect example of modern ingenuity. The largest ship that was afloat at the time of its creation in September 1708, it was launched to sea for the first time on the 31st May, 1911. It cost over £1.5m to build, which would be over £100m in todays money. It was built by Harland and Wolff, who were based in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
It was, for many reasons, an engineering marvel. Capable of reaching speeds of 28mph at maximum, its incredible 822ft in length and displacement of 52,310 tons means that it was far beyond many other ships of the era.
As the second Olympic-class ocean liner that was operated by the White Star Line, it was built as a model of modern innovation and shipbuilding potential. The ship was designed by Thomas Andrews, and was captained by Captain Edward Smith. Sadly, both perished in the disaster. The ship, though mostly for the rich and the famous, also took many people from the UK and Ireland, as well as Scandinavia, across to the United States of America.
Onboard, the ship was like a mobile place. It contained everything from gymnasiums to swimming pools and cabins that would have made most home owners blush. However, the ship only contained around one third of the number of lifeboats needed to carry its entire capacity. Poor safety regulation at the time meant that the Titanic was still seen as suitably prepared for disaster.
