How the Titanic Sank

99 years ago tonight, the Titanic scraped past an iceberg, slicing open the hull. The ship that was believed to be unsinkable, was doomed.  This short animation offers a concise view of how this happened and why.

The Titanic struck the iceberg at about 11:40 p.m.  In just two hours, forty minutes, she broke apart and disappeared beneath the sea.  Over 1500 people died.  Just 705 were able to make it to the lifeboats and find their way to rescue.
