The movie Titanic is something everyone has watched at least seventeen times or more in their life. The film dramatized the very real tragedy that unfortunately took place on May 31, 1911. It’s a tale that feels as old as time: The Titanic set sail to never dock again.

Many people know the basics of what took place after the Titanic sunk, but not many understand what led up to the crash. Leonard DiCaprio and Kate Winslet’s on-screen love story is far from the most fascinating thing about this infamous ship – though we will admit, there was definitely room for two on that piece of wood.

No binoculars on board. Insufficient lifeboats. Ignoring emergency signals. There is so much more to the Titanic and its crew than we ever knew.
