RMS Titanic

Today marks the 96th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic; April 15, 1912. History records that when the ship struck the iceberg on the night of the 14th, it tore a gash in the starboard side of the ship that led to the sinking two and half hours later that took over 1,500 lives.

But since the wreck was discovered in 1985, investigations and research have pointed to faulty materials and workmanship on the part of the shipbuilder, Harland and Wolff.

Not surprisingly, Harland and Wolff takes exception to this revelation.
