Almost everyone knows the story of the famous Titanic ship and it sank after hitting an iceberg before midnight in 1912, sailing for the first time after its construction, from the coast of the United Kingdom towards New York. IN general, the tragedy of the Titanic has been and continues to be controversial for more than a century. The most exciting and modern in this tragedy is a new hypothesis that the ship was not only drowned by an iceberg.
It is hard to count the books and articles that wrote about it. and there is the famous film about it also, and don’t forget about the legend that it was a strong marine object immune to drowning, but all the myths were shattered after the ship hit the iceberg in the North Atlantic.
Although more than a century has passed since the Titanic sank in the North Atlantic, a lot of mystery is still circulating about this story. It has been classified as one of the worst marine accidents in history since more than 1,500 people died on board!
We heard a lot about the story of the Titanic of the English Ocean Transporter, which sank in 1912 when it was sailing on its first flights, most recently from Southampton, 121 kilometers southwest of London, to New York. We got to know some of what happened in the ship through the famous romantic drama "Titanic," directed by James Cameron in 1997, but there are some things and facts that we do not know, and recognize for the first time.
And we have to know more about some characters like The British sailor Frederick Fleet (1887-1956), the first person to see the glacier before colliding with the ship, later testified during his sinking investigations that his lack of close-up glasses made him see the dark glacier with his naked eyes late. Collision with it.
Its sinking was a major shock to all. It was provided with the highest safety standards at the time. It was built by the most experienced and experienced engineers. It was used in building the most advanced technologies. It was a great mystery for many researchers. Drowned by chance, or was it a deliberate and effective?
This is what we will try to answer in the following lines :
1- Waterproof Doors:
The ship is not like any other ship; it has two seams, one of which runs across the other. The lower part of the ship consists of 16 sections, without water. Even if one of these sections is flooded, It is very easy to book water in this part alone and prevent it from flooding other parts, but these doors are the reason behind the sinking of the boat's introduction into the water after the ship hit the iceberg.
Some observers believe that there was a fire that raged for three weeks just behind the spot where the iceberg had penetrated directly. Experts confirmed that a fire broke out in a three-story fuel store with hundreds of tons of coal behind the boiler room. It was customary to reverse the usual trend so that the passengers did not see the signs. Twelve men tried to put out the fire, but remained in trouble for days in temperatures ranging from 500 degrees to 1,000 degrees Celsius. If the steel were exposed to this level of heat, it would become fragile and decrease by 75 percent.
Another theory trying to blame Titanic designers, where there were joints extending at the bottom of the ship, which some researchers believe would have broken Titanic during a soft storm, would not stand up to such a huge iceberg that collided with the ship. The vessel was not broken, and the expansion joints were the ones that caused the ship's bottom to break.
Some say it is possible that a German submarine intercepted the Titanic, where survivors heard explosions on board the ship, which were likely to have been attacked by German troops, but some deny it, since World War I did not break out until 1914 , While Titanic sank in 1912, so there would be no reason for Germany to attack the ship at the time.
In 1889, the British Museum acquired an Egyptian artifact known as the "Lucky Mummy" because of the fact that its former owners had some bad luck, so the mummy was discarded to the New York Museum. The vessel was the Titanic, but it was not It is said that whoever tried to wipe the dust from the face painted on the coffin was his son dying with measles within 7 days.
6- The Discovery:
The shipwreck of the Atlantic Ocean was discovered on September 1, 1985, 73 years after its sinking. The discovery of its location was a dream for everyone. It was and still is a myth that attracts people.
It was discovered by a French-American expedition. The team of explorers noticed that the ship had split into two halves shortly after it sank close to the surface and before reaching the ocean floor.
