He's 29 meter large and 53 metter tall with the chimney. He weighted 46
328 tonns and he was going at the speed of 23 knots. He was having 16 watertight

was only going to the deck E. Without the chimney which means from the
bottom to the upper deck, the Titanic was 33 meter high. He cost 7 500
000 US dollars which would be a lot more today. He was built in Belfast
Ireland by the Harland & Wolf for White Star Line. He was able to carry
3200 passengers. Instead of most of the ships at this time, the Titanic
was having 4 chimney. He left Southampton England the 10 Avril 1912, he
stopped at Cheerbourg France and Queenstown Ireland to take other passengers.
He was mainly made of steel and he was propelled with a steam engine that was burning coal. A first class ticket cost 3100 dollars and one in third class cost 32 dollars ( remember that everything was less expensive in the beginning of the century ).

There were fantastic gymnasiums, great living rooms and a new kind of stationery bicycle. The Titanic was on road to New York and Captain Edward J. Smith was in command of this ship.
