Titanic Facts

 

RMS stands for Royal Mail Steamer.

Although there were 4 funnels only 3 were operational. The 4th funnel was for looks.

The studios wanted Matthew McConaughey cast as Jack Dawson but James Cameron insisted on Leonardo DiCaprio.

Titanic's total capacity was 3547 passengers and crew, fully loaded.

The Titanic was designed to hold 32 lifeboats, though only 20 were on board because the management was concerned that too many boats would sully the aesthetic beauty of the ship.

The wreckage of Titanic was located in 1985, 12,500 feet down, about 531 km southeast of Newfoundland, Canada.

The cost of the Titanic in 1912 was $7,500,000.

The Titanic had electric elevators, a swimming pool, a squash court, a Turkish Bath, and a gymnasium with a mechanical horse and mechanical camel.

Survivors were rescued by the Carpathia which was 58 miles southeast of Titanic when it received the distress call.

In 1912, skilled shipyard workers who built Titanic earned $10 per week.

The two pieces of the Titanic lay 1,970 feet apart from one another on the ocean floor.

White Star Line was the company that built the Titanic, and was owned by J.P. Morgan.

The price of a single first-class ticket was $4,700, about $50,000 in today's money.

There were 6 ice warnings received by Titanic on the day of the collision. They were all ignored by the wireless operator who was preoccupied with transmitting passenger messages.

On the night of the collision, because the moon was not out, and the water was so still, it was very difficult to see the iceberg. A less calm water would have caused breakers around the iceberg making it easier to see it from afar.

The iceberg that the Titanic struck was not a very big one. It did not even come up as high as the bridge of the ship.

As the ship was sinking, the stern rose out of the water, and broke into two pieces between the third and fourth funnels.

James Cameron drew all the sketches in Jack's sketchbook and the sketch of Rose wearing the famous necklace.
