Remembering Titanic

14th April 2012 and on this date 100 years ago, the Titanic loose to a floating iceberg on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York. In 1912 on April 14th, at 11.14 pm, an iceberg is sighted dead ahead, but Titanic is sailing a 21 knots and cannot be turned quickly enough to port to avoid a collision along her starboarc side. That was what written in the centrespread of the National Geographic's April 2012 issue, in describing the timeline of Death of the Titanic from the moment the iceberg was sighted to the moment the bow plough into the bottom of the Atlantic about three hours later.


The centrespread also published the map of the Titanic resting on the seabed captured using sonar imaging and for the first time of the crash scene.


I have never bought a National Geographic before but this anniversary issue is one that will of historical value in years to come. This issue carries two article about The Titanic; Unseen Titanic and Ghostwalker. As strong as the love between Jack Dawson and Rose, the Titanic will still be remembered because My Heart Will Go On......and on.........
