    Any Titanic buffs in here? Whenever I start trying to wrap my head around the mysteries involving the Titanic I become so boggled.... It seems really simple - it got hit by and iceberg, then sunk - But when you look at the details of it, just seems like there's more too it...

    What do you think really happened in the final moments? Do you think the people had a long time to accept what was happening, or did it come on much quicker with more shock than they could have imagined?

    well, there are lots of storys behind the titinac, and lots of theorys.

    i think they did have time, knowing the ship was going down due to the "unsinkable"-ness, it was takling its time.

    once they were inthe water alot of those who were floatin must of know they were going to die.

    Yeh, I'm sure they had some time, but do you think they knew that the ship would break in half? I'm sure that was unexpected and probly caused it to go down much faster than they could have imagined... There's going to be a documentary on the history channel about some new evidence of how the titanic sank and what the passengers and crew must have experienced.

    i don't suppose they did!

    as far as my knowlage goes, the reson it broke was, it went top heavy.
    one side was filled with water, and the other wasn't, and as the heavy side went down, the other was trying to stay afloat.
    thats what i think happened, but i am only going on stuff that springs to mind when i think, might be made up in my head or form telly.

    so they might of known it was possible, but the passengers didn't think it would.

    im not a historian, but i'd say that it wasn't so much a bad ship, just over prophaganda(ised!)

    too many people said it wouldn't sink. it did. any boat that hit such an iceberg woulda , just this one wasnt supposed to.

    this might get a better responce in history? or enginearing and transport?
