Titanic is an unsinkable attraction


It was the most famous maritime disaster of all time. Late on the night of April 14, 1912, the luxury liner RMS Titanic, en route to New York on its maiden voyage, struck an iceberg. Two hours and 40 minutes later, the "unsinkable" Titanic foundered beneath the 29-degree waters of the North Atlantic, taking with it the lives of 2,208 passengers and crew. So it's hardly surprising this month's 100th anniversary will be marked with commemorations and special exhibitions in the United States and abroad. --Marshall S. Berdan, special to Newsday
