A telegraph message from a ship called Olympic reports that it has received word from the Titanic that it has struck an iceberg.
An iceberg, presumed to be the one that was struck by the RMS Titanic, is pictured from the deck of the cable ship Mackay-Bennett on April 15, 1912.
Final moments of Titanic……………..
Titanic hit the starboard side with the iceberg.
The under compartments of the bow started to flood.
Due to the flooding, the bow commenced to go down causing the stern to rise.
Initially the sinking was somewhat slower…….
Yet the later part of the sinking was sort of faster and the golden funnels started to loosen one by one
Titanic continued to lose her funnels while the stern was rising nearly 60 degrees from the ocean level.
She was out of electrical power and the stress concentration had reached the maximum at the 2nd expansion joint of the ship which lied in between the 3rd and 4th funnels…….
….causing the Titanic to split in two from the 2nd expansion joint…
…right down to the keel of the vessel and the Stern fell back.
The Bow submerged completely by pulling down the Stern vertically and then finally detached.
The Stern floated a couple of minutes perpendicular to the ocean level.
Then the stern flooded and floundered completely leaving no trace of the Titanic.
The Bow traveled nearly 3km down the Atlantic ocean
And finally landed at 2.20 AM on 15th April 1912
Survivors of the Titanic approach the RMS Carpathia on April 15, 1912.
Survivors are given blankets and medical attention.
Survivors of the Titanic rest on the deck of the Carpathia on April 15, 1912.
Survivors of the Titanic are interviewed by reporters as they come off the RMS Carpathia in New York on April 18, 1912.
Crew members who survived the Titanic are given dry clothing in New York on April 18, 1912.
Some of the items found in the wreckage of the Titanic that was auctioned April 12, 2012: a hat, glasses and a bracelet recovered from the ocean floor.
This currency is part of the artifacts collection that was auctioned.
A Gladstone-style handbag, named after Queen Victoria’s Prime Minister William Gladstone, who was said to frequently carry this type of leather bag. The bag's turn-of-the-century tanning process repels the microorganisms that eat organic matter on the ocean floor.
A portion of the ship's hull, known as 'The Big Piece'.
A pocketwatch, stopped at 10:50
Dishes retrieved from the ocean floor stand in sand in a glass case as part of the "Titanic: The Artifact Exhibit" in Houston in 2002. Photos from the wreck show that dishes were found as shown after the crates they were packed in disintegrated. At right is the bell from the crow's nest, on display in 2003 at the Science Museum in London.
The Titanic's bow rests two-and-a-half miles under the North Atlantic.
The propeller of the Titanic rests on the ocean floor.
