The Titanic is one of the most popular luxury ships ever built, known for being promoted as the “Unsinkable Ship.” It also made history after a tragic collision with an iceberg and, despite its nickname, sunk in the middle of the Atlantic in 1912. There have been a number of films and documentaries recounting the events that happened on that terrifying day that killed almost 1,500 people.
Much of the world remembers James Cameron’s epic tale of Jack and Rose in the 1997 film, but there are still many of the Titanic’s hidden truths lying at the bottom of the Atlantic. Despite the secrets of the Titanic that researchers have yet to discover, China recently announced that they have plans to build an exact replica of the historic ship!
