Our Hearts Will Go On: Titanic II to Set Sail

A rather uncomfortable feeling of déjà vu.

The tragedy of the Titanic is something that has pervaded popular culture for over 100 years.

Beyond the fictional yet captivating drama of Jack and Rose, the loss of “the unsinkable ship” was one of the greatest disasters of the early 20th century. 1,503 lives were lost in the early hours of April 15, 1912, making the ship’s collision with an iceberg almost a mythical catastrophe.

And while some may say it’s still too soon to raise the ghost of Titanic from its watery grave, one Australian billionaire is moving ahead with his plans to see the steamer set sail again.
