Was the Titanic doomed to sink? Find out more with Gale History Resource Centre Database.

This week marks the 100th Anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. The Titanic sank at 2.20 a.m. on the 15th April, 2012. 1,514 of the 2,22o passengers perished in the early hours of the morning.

Recent research indicates that even if the 'unsinkable' Titanic had not struck an iceberg on that fateful morning, it still would have been doomed to sink. Experts studying previously undiscovered portions of the keel found structural flaws, which they concluded would have made the Titanic vulnerable in the event of rough seas.
