A university professor has revealed new details about the iceberg that sunk the RMS Titanic in 1912.

The sinking of the Titanic is one of the most well known and talked about disasters in history, but what isn't quite as well documented is the large chunk of ice that the ship struck before it sank.

Just to be clear, they don't have any actual proof for this claim.

Is there a point to this story? Would there be a difference if it were only 1,000 years old?

Yes. It reminds me of a piece of coal I have from the shipwreck of the SS Republic in 1865. Since it is probably millions of years old, I can't say it is a 151-year-old piece of coal, just that it was aboard that ship 151 years ago.

So "Global Warming" caused the demise of the Titanic? :innocent:

Terminology. The "iceberg" was probably less than a year old.The glacier from which it broke apart could well have been over 100,000 years old.

But its not an iceberg untill after it breaks off from the glacier. Maybe something has been lost in translation?

The iceberg was happily bobbing along minding its own business when this bloody great iump of metal decided to see who was best..Any Mariner knows that you don't go charging through Iceberg waters at full speed
