It’s not exactly the best Monday morning pick-me-up, but if you were ever curious at just how inaccurate movies about the Titanic are, watch this animated simulation showing the infamous ocean liner sinking in real-time. You’ll just need to find a way to dodge work for two hours and forty minutes.
The sinking of the RMS Titanic in 1912 shocked the world and inspired countless movies. But there was one scientist who was inspired to come up with something no modern ship would be without: sonar.
This video is freaking great. Made by the team at RocketJump Film School, it makes a strong argument that while people love to crap on computer graphics in movies, those people don’t know what the hell they’re talking about.
I'll never watch Titanic again because I don't have a time machine that could send me back to the 90's as a teenage girl. But! I would love to play this silly 8-bit video game of Titanic. It sums up all the happenings in the movie pretty well and is perfectly silly: you play cards, you draw Rose naked, you escape a…
It's over 100 years since the Titanic final, fateful journey. But tucked away in engineering journals dating even further back are some fascinating details about how the ship was built—and in this video, Engineering Guy Bill Hammack casts a thoughtful eye over them.
A Titanic survivor penned a furious letter to a friend weeks after the infamous sinking, but her outrage was not due to reasons you'd expect. It netted $11,875 in a recent auction, and its contents offer a singular window into the mind of the one percent, 1912 style.
There's a new exhibition at an Irish museum showcasing previously unpublished sepia-tinged photos of the ill-fated Titanic as it's being launched to sea. The goose-bump inducing images show the luxury liner as it's going down the Belfast shipyard's slipway, along with excited spectators cheering on. If only they…
Greenland's Jakobshavn Glacier is firing icebergs into the Atlantic Ocean faster than ever, at an unprecedented rate in fact, according to researchers. Worse: it seems to be accelerating. Maybe the glacier that killed the Titanic with one of its icebergs is blood thirsty again.
Today I Found Out about Violet Jessop, "Miss Unsinkable," the woman who survived the sinking of the sister ships the Titanic and the Britannic, and was also aboard the third of the trio of Olympic class vessels, the Olympic, when it had a major accident.
James Sexton posted this comparison image of the Titanic and a modern cruise ship. After watching so many movies and seeing so many photographs, I'm disappointed. And kind of amazed, too.
Whoa, did The World newspaper ever get it catastrophically wrong on the morning after the sinking of the Titanic. Shockingly, they weren't the only ones.
This pig-shaped music box made it aboard one of the Titanic's lifeboats and played for hours while the ship sank. Now, thanks to the magic of computed tomography, we can listen to the pig's eerie tune.
While some actors insist on performing their own, sometimes dangerous, stunts, many iconic movie action moments were performed by brave stunt doubles. Here are some of the great stunt people of the last hundred years, sometimes captured alongside the actors they've doubled.
James Cameron was recently sued yet again for Avatar, the latest in a long line of plagiarism accusations against the director stretching back to Terminator. But is Cameron a serial plagiarist, or just a popular target for copyright lawsuits?
Good news for people who don't like their money: The only known photograph taken of the iceberg that sank the Titanic is going up for auction — and it's expected to fetch over $10,000.
On April 15, 1912, the RMS Titanic hit an iceberg, causing the ocean liner to sink and 1,502 people to die. But the new novel Deck Z by Chris Pauls and Matt Solomon imagines that many of those doomed passengers were already dead, or, to be more specific, undead.
It now appears that Titanic captain Edward John Smith had a rather shaky start to his ill-fated career — one that ended up with him going down with the ship in 1912. Prior to becoming an officer, Smith failed his first set of exams "because he did not have sufficient navigating skills." Eventually, however, he was…
