Question: In what year did the Titanic sink?

Show answer

1912 (on April 14).

The Titanic, a British luxury passenger liner, sank in the year 1912. Its maiden voyage began on April 10, 1912, departing from Southampton, England, with stops in Cherbourg, France, and Queenstown (now Cobh), Ireland. The ship was destined for New York City, United States.

Regarded as the largest and most luxurious ship afloat at the time, the Titanic was also considered virtually unsinkable due to its advanced safety features. However, late in the evening of April 14, 1912, it struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic Ocean. The iceberg damaged the ship’s hull, causing the compartments to flood. In the early hours of April 15, 1912, the ship sank.

Of the approximately 2,224 passengers and crew members aboard, more than 1,500 people lost their lives in the disaster, making it one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history. The sinking of the Titanic shocked the world and led to significant changes in maritime safety regulations.
