The Titanic Facts:
When did Titanic Sink?

After just three years, the Titanic Facts show RMS Titanic construction was finished - a floating city, ready to set sail on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York. On board was a collection of passengers comprising millionaires, movie stars, teachers and emigrants, in search of a better life in the United States.

On the night of Sunday 14 April 1912, the sea was flat calm, the sky clear and moonless, and the temperature was dropping towards freezing.

At 11.40pm the lookout sounded the alarm and telephoned the bridge saying "Iceberg, right ahead." Less than three hours later the Titanic Ship lay at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, nearly four kilometres down. The sinking of Titanic ship claimed more than 1,500 lives.

At the time she was the largest moving object on the planet and touted as being unsinkable.
