On the night of April 14, 1912, at 20 minutes
before midnight, the "unsinkable" ship RMS Titanic was cruising
across the Grand Banks off Newfoundland at more than 20 knots on its maiden
voyage. Lookouts suddenly saw an iceberg dead ahead rising six stories out
of the water. Their warnings to the bridge were too late. The great liner
struck the iceberg and sank. The resulting loss of more than 1,500 passengers
and crew stunned a world that had become increasingly complaisant with mankind's
presumed superiority over nature.
