This April will mark the 100th anniversary of the Titanic.

I find it interesting that people still research what happened. I don't know if this article is true, but it is interesting none the less.


But on January 4, the moon was near full and at its closest distance to the Earth in 1,400 years. A day earlier, Earth was at perihelion, its closest distance to the sun all year. The alignment of Earth, sun and moon created an exceptionally strong "spring tide" which could have refloated icebergs grounded on the northwestern Atlantic coast, the researchers said.


cnn.com

Now I have heard before that the icebergs were unseasonal, and that was part of the problem. That they strayed from their normal patterns of movement, but this was do to a climate change at the time, and I haven't been able to find that article since.

Either way, whether the Captain's experience told him there shouldn't be ice bergs, he should of still hailed the information he received.

Is there any foundation to the allegation that J.P Morgan financed the construction of the Titanic?

The only thing I found was this Link and I have no idea of the credibility of the information
