unbelievable-facts:14 years before the Titanic sank, someone…


14 years before the Titanic sank, someone wrote a novel about a ship named Titan which also sank in the North Atlantic Ocean, in the same month, and struck an iceberg located with the same distance from Newfoundland (Terranova)

Although the novel was written before the Olympic-class Titanic was even designed, there are some remarkable similarities between both the fictional and real-life versions. Like the Titanic, the fictional ship sank in April in the North Atlantic, and there were not enough lifeboats for the passengers. There are also similarities between the size (800 ft (244 m) long for Titan versus 882 ft 9 in (269 m) long for the Titanic), speed (25 knots for Titan, 22.5 knots for Titanic) and life-saving equipment.
