The unsinkable Titanic was fatally wounded over a total of 12 square feet, about the size of a refrigerator.  Although it was not the size of the damage, as much as how she was damaged.  When the Titanic struck the iceberg, it popped rivets and buckled the steel plates for about 300 feet.  It was not a gash as originally thought, it was simply little holes and popped rivets.  The length of the damage was enough to flood the first five compartments, which ultimately meant her doom.  The Titanic could float with any two consecutive compartments flooded or even with the first four compartments flooded, but not five.   Please visit the following pages to see more on the disaster.
