Text of Titanic [From Www. ]

  • Final moments Of Titanic..

  • Titanic hit the starboard side with the ice berg.

  • 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 of Titanic stared to lose 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 @ the 2nd expansion joint of the ship which lied in between the 3rd and 4th funnels.

  • .caused the Titanic to splint into 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 foundered completely leaving no trace of Titanic.

  • The Bow traveled nearly 3km down the Atlantic ocean

  • And finally landed @ 2.20 AM on 15th April 1912

  • Titanic was lost from the world above in 1912For nearly 07 decades until the ship wreck was finally discovered from the bottom of the great Atlantic ocean by Dr. Robert D Ballardon 1st September 1985

  • The first image of the Titanic captured byDr. Robert D Ballard and his crew

  • The pedestal which held the control wheel of TitanicBut the control wheel is no longer to be seen

  • The Bow

  • When compared with the BOW, the STERN is utterly destroyed in a manner that it can be hardly identified as a shipwreckand the reason is due to the air tight compartments such as refrigerated cargo compartment and air accumulated huge compartments such as propeller shaft tunnels, as can be seen in the profile of the ship, were located in the STERNand during the sinking, having separated from the BOW and traveling down the Atlantic ocean , all the trapped air inside these compartments was released by exerting an immense pressure onto the STERN walls followed by an explosion causing the outer metal plates to be pealed out and all compartments located above theseair trapped compartments to be destroyed completelyThis explosion was so powerful as it was heard by some survivors,few minutes after Titanic sank completely!

  • This is how she looked liked 95 years ago
