From the moment the devastating news reached New York, America has been utterly enthralled by the Titanic disaster. We savor mental images of the super rich clinging to debris, drowning because they grabbed jewels instead of a life vest, and we still can’t help but wonder whether the iceberg was cosmic punishment for the arrogance of claiming an “unsinkable” ship. Even 100 years later, we want to know what else the wreck can teach us.
