Are You Curious...?
Everybody knows that the RMS Titanic sank on her maiden voyage on 15 April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg, killing 1,514 people. The Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time and was considered unsinkable. Its shortage of lifeboats and inadequate disaster preparedness are often held up as a symbol of hubris. Many books have been written and some good movies made (especially "A Night to Remember") about that fateful voyage, so we won't cover that same ground (or water) here.
Did you also know that the Titanic was the second of three Olympic-class ocean liners? White Star Lines commissioned the RMS Olympic and the Britannic (originally called the Gigantic) at the same time. So what happened to Titanic's sister ships? Britannic hit a German mine and sank in 1916, but Olympic fared better. She was on her way across the Atlantic in the opposite direction when Titanic sank, and actually received a distress call on that cold April night but was too far away to render assistance. During WW1 Olympic was pressed into service as a troop transport; in 1918 she rammed and sank a German U-boat. In 1920 she was refitted for civilian passengers and enjoyed an uneventful career until she was finally scrapped in 1935.
