The keel laying of the Titanic took place on March 31, 1909, about fifteen weeks later, after the sister ship Olympic had been laid on the keel. Both steamers were built at the same time and equipped with the highest level of elegance and luxury. It was intended to use both steamers in the prestigious transatlantic liner service of the White Star Line. Two years later, on May 31, 1911, the Northern Irish shipyard Harland & Wolff handed over the completed Olympic to the shipping company and on the same day around 12:15 the Titanic was launched. With a length of 269.04 m, a width of 28.19 m and a tonnage of 46.329 GRT, it surpassed all previously built ships and was the largest ship in the world in 1912. First, Captain Edward John Smith took over the command of the Olympic, before he switched to the Titanic for the maiden voyage. On Wednesday, April 10, 1912, she set out from Southampton, narrowly escaping a crash with the SS New York moored in the harbour. The stations Cherbourg (France) and Queenstown (Ireland) were on their way to New York (USA). The crossing went smoothly until the bell of the lookout sounded due to numerous iceberg warnings on Sunday (14.April 1912) at 23:40 (on-board time). The ship grazed the iceberg on the starboard side and sank into the icy waters of the Atlantic after two hours and forty minutes. Only 712 people survived the disaster. Captain Smith went down with his ship.
