The Titanic was a passengar liner that struck an iceberg on her maiden voyage from Southhampton, England, to New York City, and sank on April 15, 1912. On the night of April 14, 1912, she made her fatal collision, an estimated 37 seconds after the Fleet sighted the iceberg. The iceberg scraped the ship's starboard (right) side, buckling the hull in several places and popping out rivets below the waterline over a length of 299 feet (90m). This opened the first six compartments to the sea; the ship was only designed to remain afloat with the first four compartments flooded. The entire impact lasted approximately 10 seconds. Additionally, about 130 minutes after the collision, water started pouring from the sixth into the seventh compartment over the top of the bulkhead seperating them. Following an inspection by the senior officers, the Titanic's shipbuilder Thomas Andrews concluded that the Titanic would sink. The lifeboats were ordered to be readied and a distress call was sent out. As there are not enough life boats for all passengers, of a total of 2,224 people aboard the Titanic only 710, less that a third, survived and 1,514 perished.
