April 14, 1912. The Titanic crashed into a huge iceberg and sank. Yep we’ve covered that. But what if this time we use the ice to bring the ship to the surface? This requires several thousand feet of wire mesh and a lot of liquid nitrogen. Our goal is to put the Titanic in a huge block of ice that will raise the ship to the surface.To do this, you need to wrap the wreck in the wire mesh and cover it with liquid nitrogen. The first problem you face is the inability to wrap the ship completely. You need to somehow lift the ship a little to put the mesh under it. Let’s say that by some miracle you manage to do so. Next, you need to transport hundreds of large tanks of liquid nitrogen. You’re underwater, opening the tanks and... it’s so cold that the icy water of the Atlantic Ocean looks like it’s boiling. The nitrogen just sizzles, dissipates, and certainly doesn’t create a block of ice around the mesh.

It’s been 111 years since the Titanic sank. The world’s most famous shipwreck is shrouded in mystery. So much so that it continues to fascinate divers, scientists, and Titanic fans all around the world. But I suspect these people have a reason for this. Ever since the Titanic sank, expeditions have scoured the deep waters of the North Atlantic Ocean to locate the wreck. The wreck was discovered pretty recently — only 38 years ago. But since then, several expeditions continue to go down there to explore and assess the wreck.

However, not all auditions result in success, and actors may decline offers made by directors or producers.

You remember those heartbreaking scenes from the Titanic, either from books or movies, right? You know, the ones where the boat was sinking and there’s nothing anyone could have done about it? Well, it turns out that that story isn’t entirely true. At least according to a historian, and author of a book detailing events from the unlucky ship. If what he claims is true, every soul on the Titanic could have been saved! He wrote that the SS Californian and the SS Mount Temple were close enough to technically see the Titanic go down into the ocean, but they failed to act because they were afraid. Or because they too had no idea what they were doing.

The cause of the Titanic crash was an iceberg. Or so we’ve always been told... But new research has come to light that debunks this theory. On April 15th, 1915, Titanic, the biggest ship of its time, completely disappeared under the ice-cold surface of the Atlantic Ocean. It’s hard to believe that such a massive and expensive creation could be destroyed by one simple iceberg, right? Well, recent findings suggest that the real cause of the disaster was a fire, not an iceberg.

Do you know that Leonardo da Vinci created a drawing of a mechanical robot in knight’s armor in 1495? According to the detailed plan, this knight could move and swing a sword thanks to an internal mechanical system consisting of ropes and gears. Whether Leonardo built this robot is unknown, but in 2002, one robotics engineer created this mechanical knight. And do you know what the first real robot looked like? It wasn’t a person in a cardboard robot suit. It was a real machine powered by electricity. It looked like a large box with an arm sticking out of it — like a smaller version of a crane. An inventor from Kentucky, George Devol, created it in the 1950s. He patented his invention and called it “Unimate.” The box with a mechanical arm was used in a TV show. The robot hit a golf ball into a cup, poured a drink into a mug, and impersonated a music band. People were delighted, but the invention didn’t bring George Devol money.

Staying in the water that’s 70ºF for a long time definitely won’t do your health any good. A water temperature of 50ºF is a nightmare. It feels much colder than the air of the same temperature. The passengers of the Titanic were in 28ºF water. Can you imagine how cold it was? Even the iceberg that the Titanic met was warmer. The water didn’t freeze because of the high salt content. But what if the temperature had been higher? What if the Titanic had sunk in warm water, say 120ºF? Theoretically, this could have happened had the waters of the North Atlantic met a warm undercurrent from the southern part of the ocean on disaster day. But this heat wouldn’t have been enough.

Have you ever wondered how containers on a cargo ship remain intact throughout the whole journey? Let me answer this question and tell you about other cool ship facts. Meet Unsinkable Sam. Sam’s goal was to prove the saying, “Cats have 9 lives.” This animal survived 3 ships sinking. He was originally named Oscar but got nicknamed “Unsinkable Sam” — you probably get why. The first time the ship he was traveling on sank, Oscar was found by the crew of another ship when he was floating on a board. He remained on that ship for a couple of months, but then the vessel also sank in 1941. The cat was then saved by another ship. The crew there had heard the story of the animal and called him Unsinkable Sam. His marine journey ended when the crew sent him back to the UK.

From the longest wedding dress train to the tallest man and the woman with the longest fingernails, to even the man holding the record for most records, let’s explore these awesome stories together. The world record for hosting the largest barbeque doesn’t belong to a person but to a whole city. I mean, it does really take some power to grill all that food, so the small city of Minas in Uruguay came together in 2017 to smash this one. About 200 people cooked over 36,000 pounds of food. Aaand they were doing it for a total of 14 hours! Why would they even start such a project, you might ask? Well, because of the magical spirit of competition, of course. They wanted to snatch the world record back from Argentina, which had previously surpassed them back in 2011.

Ships have been around for at least 6,000 years, dating back to Ancient Egypt. In the beginning, they were used for trading and exploring. Ships as an attraction became a thing only a bit over a hundred years ago. But the first cruise ship wasn’t the infamous Titanic as you might think. The first cruise ship that took passengers on a voyage was a German ship called “Prinzessin Victoria Luise” back in 1900, and it served for 6 years. Modern ships are of course more advanced, but they still have a limited lifespan — they usually serve for about 30 years. A ship much older than that isn’t considered safe and stable anymore due to the metal fatigue, most often of the ship’s hull.

April 14, 1912. The dark night was filled with horrible sounds of a giant metal vessel breaking into two. The largest ship of that time collided with an iceberg that was on its way. The Titanic. One of the biggest stories of the 20th century that people still talk about. The starboard side of the giant vessel brushed up against the iceberg. It was 11:40 p.m. when things started going wrong. This iceberg caused enough damage for at least five watertight compartments in the hull to start filling with water.

Have you ever wondered how much of the Titanic is left these days? Now, if you haven’t been living under a rock, you probably know that it’s been over 100 years since the world’s most famous ship turned into a wreck. The RMS Titanic, the world’s largest sea liner from the beginning of the 1900s, sank during its maiden voyage, just a few days after leaving port. The ship struck an iceberg on April 14th, 1912, taking down over 1,500 passengers of more than 2,200 who were on board the liner at that time. As shocking as this may sound, the Titanic took over three years to be built and only three hours to sink. And if it were today, the ship would have cost over 210 million dollars to be made.

I have to say — it would be hard to visit the biggest waterfall in the world because it’s underwater. Deep down below, there are fissures and caverns on the ocean floor. They form when water oozes through the layers of salt that are beneath it. This water is filled with dissolved salt. This makes it denser than the water surrounding it, which is why it ends up settling into these fissures. Such type of dense water forms a massive waterfall near Denmark. It’s a giant cascade that plummets 11,500 feet. That’s over three times the height of the well-known Angel Falls in Venezuela. So, the colder water of this waterfall sinks after it collides with the surrounding water that’s less dense.
