Titanic sank 107 years ago

Monday marks the tragic anniversary for a famous ocean-liner.

The Titanic sank to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, 107 years ago.

The ship hit an iceberg late in the night on April 14th, and sank a few hours later in the early hours of the 15th.

For more than seventy years the wreck of the Titanic lay undisturbed on the ocean floor. Then, in 1985, advances in deep-sea technology led to its discovery. 

In addition to being the subject of numerous books, the ship inspired several films including James Cameron’s blockbuster movie in 1997.
