Captains granddaughter says the Titanic was sunk by a basic steering error











I’ve always been fascinated by the story of the Titanic. This news comes as a revelation. The theory all along has been the captain didn’t have time to react when the giant iceberg was first spotted by a lookout.

Granddaughter of ship officer says truth hidden to protect his reputation

“The Titanic hit an iceberg in 1912 because of a basic steering error, and only sank as fast as it did because an official persuaded the captain to continue sailing, an author said in an interview published Wednesday.

Louise Patten, a writer and granddaughter of Titanic second officer Charles Lightoller, said the truth about what happened nearly 100 years ago had been hidden for fear of tarnishing the reputation of her grandfather, who later became a war hero.”

How the Titanic tore apart

Based on newly made 3-D maps of the shipwreck site, experts say that the Titanic’s breakup was messier than previously thought.
