What caused the Titanic to sink?
Correct answer: A collision with a massive iceberg
happygamestop444, it is now known that a fire burning for days inside coal stores is what weakened the hull first, making it vulnerable to damage from icebergs
Michelle Drew, you are oversimplifying things. You need to look at the decisions made regarding the ship's design, the lack of life boats, the myth that it was unsinkable and the failure of the nearest ship to respond. Things are rarely as simple as we like to make them.
Having just answered a question on syntax recently,I feel it's appropriate to point out that it was the ship which hit the iceberg, not vice versa.
Yes, the ship that helped in the rescue did take survivors to New York. My grandmother was on it with her mother & sister,& they shared their state room with Mrs. Astor. She was so thankful that she later invited then to her N.Y. mansion. We learned about this when my grandmother was 82 years of age!!!
Such sorrow that never should of happened in the first place if the Captain only listened to what he was told by others.
A recent program on tv said that if they had hit the iceberg head-on with the bow, they might have stayed afloat longer, and more people might have survived. It's like many blunders in a short period of panic doomed the ship & its passengers. I've heard that engineers built the Titanic, but an amateur built the Ark.
Actually the Titanic sank because the "watertight compartments" had no ceilings and allowed the water to pass further into the ship. Also ego allowed this ship to sail without insufficient lifeboats, sealing many passengers' fates.
Maybe if upon Send Off and Bottle christening, the man had not said "even GOD can't sink this vessel", there may have been Mercy given by the Almighty GOD. That statement was a slap in the face to the Creator of man. GOD uses threes (3) in many instances- err a 3hour sink time falls into place. My opinion only. I do know that GOD is Real, and Will Not Be Mocked. Byl Butler
So sorry for this mass catastrophe.
learn and play I like this game ❤
JimmyLovesQL, But the watertight compartments actually helped Titanic
the titanics hull was damaged already or was it the titanic that sunk
Peacockblue1221, your absolutely right plus the steal wasn't up to scratch Eva
plus its hard to pronous some of the words maybe audio
iceberg hit the ship?? I thought the ship hit the iceberg??? lol
So sad. If only they hadn’t hit the iceberg then thousands of families wouldn’t have lost someone
My grate grate grandfather was on the titanic when it happened and he did not make it out alive
very tragic event in history.
Kris, I don't really know. There is a possibility of the Titanic II sinking (Again!). But, on the other hand, there's also a possibility of the Titanic surviving, not like the other one. If the iceberg is still there, and the new one will take the same route, the possibility of the Titanic sinking, is 60% sure!
Yes, TwaughtBane, the ship hit the iceberg. It is not possible that the iceberg hit the ship. Why? Because it's the ship that's moving, not the iceberg!
I know this 'cause I know what happened in the movie.
Good thing I saw the movie!! 😃
ma. lourdes r. cruz
a coalision of iceberg
A torpedo was what sunk the ship
Hard question for me make it easier for now on.
hi ☺️. vat is. or nam. my nam is. Ssashvinee. today
so many things in 1910 in 2023 is modern people cant make boat and food
The Titanic remains a fascination for many people because it is a microcosm of its era.
Peacockblue1221, Indeed. i hesitated on this one.
i don't know
It was also because of the lack of comms.
there was a cause before the ship hit the iceberg, the real reason should be told so more are aware.
I love titanic story!
sorry it's new to me
Michelle Drew, Look at how much stuff was on that boat. That’s why it only took three hours to sink.
TwaughtBane, lol :)
I read a book about that
it was actually a fire i the ship that coused it,the iceberg just made it sink faster
