Research Notes
“Sure, the R.M.S. Titanic sank a century ago, but scientists are learning more about the ship and the real reasons it sank every day. That’s what made me want to write this book.

“Thanks to technological advances that made it possible to locate and search the ship and study the trail of artifacts scattered across the ocean floor, researchers continue to piece together new bits of the story that has captivated us for 100 years.”
