RMS Titanic is one of the most famous historical ships. Titanic was the biggest moving object ever build. She was not only biggest but also backed with superior quality and performance. Titanic was the property of White Star Corporation, based in Britain.
The RMS (Royal Mail Ship) Titanic, an Olympic class passenger liner, was a British luxury passenger liner that sank on April 15, 1912, en route to New York from Southampton, England, on its maiden voyage. The largest and most luxurious ship afloat, it had a double-bottomed hull divided into 16 watertight compartments. The Titanic struck an iceberg on the night of April 14, at 11:40 PM. Titanic sank, with great loss of life, at 2:20 AM, on April 15, 1912. The United States Senate investigation reported that 1,517 people perished in the accident, while the British investigation has the number at 1,490. Regardless, the disaster ranks as one of the worst peacetime maritime disasters in history, and is by far the best known. It carried some of the richest, most powerful industrialists, multi-millionaire entrepreneurs of her day.
