New research contradicts conventional theories on Titanic disaster
Washington: A new research has raised doubts on previous findings which suggested that the Titanic sank as it set off on its maiden voyage in a year which had an exceptional number of icebergs caused by lunar or solar effects.
Academics at the University of Sheffield have shown the ship wasn`t as unlucky as previously thought, by using data on iceberg locations dating back to 1913 which shows that 1912 was a significant ice year but not extreme.
Professor Grant Bigg , who led the research, said that 1912 was a year of raised iceberg hazard, but not exceptionally so in the long term and the risk of icebergs is actually higher now.
