SOUTHAMPTON, ENGLAND - APRIL 10: A guest walks past a replica bow of RMS Titanic beside birth 43 and 44 at Southampton Dock during a Titanic Centenary Memorial on April 10, 2012 in Southampton, England. The births mark the departure point of RMS Titanic when it set sail one hundred years ago today.

New evidence suggests Iceberg may not have caused ‘Titanic’ to sink

There has been new evidence proving that the sinking of the Titanic years ago may not have been caused by the iceberg after all. It looks like the biggest ship to have sailed across the ocean may have had other technical lapses that caused the sinking.

The sinking of the Titanic has been one of the most controversial issues there ever was in history. It can be recalled that it sank over a hundred years ago, taking the lives of so many people. It even inspired the cinematic world to make a movie out of it, for the irony in having the biggest and dubbed as the “unsinkable” ship at the time ended up sinking and taking the lives of thousands. It has always been told that it sank after it hit an iceberg that they did not anticipate while on the journey. However, there has been new evidence that may have opposed that theory.

No one is debunking the fact that it sank because it was going at an accelerated speed and hit the iceberg, however, it being claimed that there is more to that story. There has been a new documentary released in Britain on New Year’s Day showing the journey of an Irish journalist who has devoted 30 years of his life in studying about the Titanic. According to him, after a thorough investigation, there was a giant coal fire in the hull of the ship that may have appeared weeks before the Titanic sailed its way across the oceans.

The documentary has stated that the fire had already been there about three weeks before the Titanic sailed, causing damage to the hull of the ship. This caused it to involuntarily accelerate, thus making it hit the iceberg. Thus, if it would have been checked as thoroughly as expected, that ship should never have sailed to New York in the first place.
