Titanic centennial crosses land and sea
At 2:20 a.m. on April 15, 1912, the mighty White Star Line steamship slipped beneath the Atlantic Ocean’s cobalt waters. Hours after striking an iceberg on its maiden voyage, the Titanic landed not only on the seabed, but in the history books and annals of popular culture. With the approaching centennial of the disaster, which claimed more than 1,500 lives, get ready for a 3D version of James Cameron’s 1997 blockbuster movie. But if you want to venture beyond the local multiplex, there are plenty of places around the globe to commemorate the Titanic’s sinking.
