The R.M.S. Titanic was the largest steamship in the world when she set off on her maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New York City on April 10, 1912. Four days into the crossing, at 11:40 p.m. April 14, 1912, the ship struck an iceberg and eventually sank at 2:20 a.m. the following morning. Her sinking resulted in the deaths of 1,517 people, making it one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history.
The Titanic used some of the most advanced technologies available in her time. It was a great shock to many that the Titanic sank, despite these extensive safety features. The fact that she sank on her maiden voyage compounded the irony and tragedy of the story.
