- The sinking of the Titanic has inspired many books, movies, and conspiracy theories. Why do you think people are still so fascinated by this event?
The Titanic was a British passenger ship that sank to the bottom of the ocean during its first voyage. The ship was constructed during the 1900s by a transportation company known as White Star. This was a part of their plan to introduce a new set of luxury passenger ships that would transport wealthy people across the Atlantic Ocean. White Star finished building the Titanic in 1911. At that time, it was the biggest ship that had ever been built. The Titanic was designed with safety compartments that could fill up with water if any issues occurred. Because of this, many people believed that the Titanic was unsinkable. In April 1912, the Titanic began its trip from England to the United States, carrying over 2,000 passengers. While at sea, the ship collided with an iceberg and began to overflow. Passengers and crew evacuated the ship, but there were not enough lifeboats on board to save everyone. Out of the original 2,000 passengers, only 705 survived. The sinking of the Titanic has since been known as one of the greatest tragedies of the 20th century.

Why people are fascinating by this event?
I knew this event through the movie, which tells the story in a fantastic way. I believe the many people’s first contact was also through the movie.
The story narrated by movie make us ask ourselves a lot of questions, like what in the movie is true and what is not? What happened to the ship? How was recording of the movie?

The sinking of the Titanic remains spectacular. It goes a long way in making us understand that life can sometimes be unpredictable. In as much as we can not trust our body systems, we should not trust our technologically produced handworks.
