The Crew was ordered that in the moment when occurred the death of “Titanic”, you first had to rescue the passengers of the first class. One of the first in the boat sat a Director of the company, which owned the ship. Lower deck that housed 1,500 people, was closed. This was done with the intention that the passengers rushed to the lifeboats. The tragedy is still considered the biggest disaster in peacetime. The circumstances involved in the death of 1,500 people, is still shrouded in mystery.

Riddles, which are associated with the death of the “Titanic”Mystery death

If the fact that the meeting with the iceberg was really, no doubt, with everything else taking place aboard and in the water, still can not find the exact explanation. For example, a few weeks before the tragic event was published ‘Atlantis" (Roman G. Gauptmana). Surprisingly, the events in the book, all the details matched with what was happening on Board the ship. Coincidence?

Another mystery of the death “Titanic” was discovered in the spring of 1996, when an English expedition during the month, examined the ship's hull with powerful, unique technology. It was astonishing data: on level, below the waterline is six holes, which occupy an area of not more than 5 meters. If the liner has faced an iceberg, the hull would be a big hole at least 30 meters.

Another mystery associated with the mysterious object. During the tragedy near the liner sailed another ship with extinguished lights. For a long time assumed that it was “Kalifornian”. The captain of the steamer was accused of refusing to help dying. And only 50 years later, scientists were able to prove that it was a different sea object may "Samson" who'd been poaching in Norway.

Interesting facts related to the behavior of individual people, for example, why not sail on the ship by its owner, though always participated in the maiden voyage of their ships. Why was not loaded aboard a unique collection of paintings, which was to be delivered to another location?

Many other circumstances remain unsolved. It is possible that further expeditions will be able to solve the mystery.
