The Titanic sank to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean on its maiden voyage in April of 1912 – that's 105 years ago. But the historical tragedy continues to captivate people all over the world.
Our obsession with the Titanic started long before Rose met Jack. More than 1,500 people died on the ship, which infamously didn't have enough lifeboats for all of the passengers on board. For decades, people have studied and questioned how an "unsinkable" ship could fail so epically.
Relatives of people aboard the ship recently gathered in Belfast for the anniversary of the sinking, sharing stories of survivors and lost relatives. Titanic exhibits continue to draw huge crowds wherever they go, and artifacts recovered from the wreckage can cost a pretty penny at auction.
There's no doubt – we are fascinated in knowing more about what happened that day.
Adam Korczynski of Marine Electronics made an infographic for GoMN that addresses 10 things we still don't really know about the Titanic. (Note: The infographic may not load properly in some mobile browsers).
