100th Anniversary of the Titanic Launch

Here's a tidbit of nautical history for your Wednesday...

Yesterday marked the 100th anniversary of the launch of the RMS Titanic, and descendants of the men who built "the unsinkable ship" held a ceremony in Belfast, Ireland to help restore the city's maritime pride. The Titanic was launched on May 31, 1911 - nearly one year later, on April 14, 1912, she struck an iceberg and sank on her maiden transatlantic voyage.
