~Out of the 2228 passengers, only 705 actually lived.
~The Titanic was the first ship to ever contain a heated pool.
~Of the 1517 people that went down with the ship, only 306 of their bodies were recovered.
~Even though all women and children were to get on the life boats before men, more men survived the ship sinking.
~Most survivors were from the first class.
~When the ship sank, it broke in half. One end sunk right away. The other floated around 3 miles away before finally filling up with water and sinking.
~Many think that the reason that the one part of the ship stayed afloat was because many people jumped, and it lightened that side, enough to let it float longer.
