- The REAL Truth
In 1898 a struggling author named Morgan Robertson concocted a novel
called "Futility" about a fabulous Atlantic liner, far larger than any
that had been built.
No more than fourteen years later a British shipping company named the
White Star Line built a steamer remarkably like the one in Robertson's
This is all true. I
am totally not making this up.
The new liner was 66,000 tons displacement; Robertson's was 70,000 tons.
The real ship was 882ft and 9in long; the fictional one was 800ft.
Both vessels were triple screw and could make 24 - 25 knots.
Both could carry about 3,000 people and both had enough lifeboats for only
a fraction of this number. But, then, this didn't seem to matter because
they were both labeled "unsinkable".
The fictional boat was wrecked one cold April night on an iceberg.
On April 10, 1912 the real ship left Southampton on her maiden voyage to
New York. On her way over she too struck an iceberg and went down.
Robertson called his ship the Titan; the White Star Line called its ship
Now we know exactly where the conspirators got the inspiration
