小编摘要:在“泰坦尼克号”沉没100周年的今天,美国《读者文摘》揭晓了关于“泰坦尼克号”鲜为人知的13件惊奇的事情!




1. A full moon may have caused the fatal iceberg to cross paths with the ship

    圆月之夜造成致命冰山阻碍航道

Scientists recently arrived at a new theory that the full moon months before could be to blame for the collision, which killed about 1,500 people.


2. Nearly five Titanics could be built with the money James Cameron's Titanic movie has made worldwide 

詹姆斯.卡梅隆的电影《泰坦尼克号》的全球总收入可供建造近5艘“泰坦尼克号”

According to the California ScienCenter, the Titanic would cost about $400 million to build today. James Cameron's Academy Award-winning film Titanic has earned over $1.84 billion worldwide since its release in 1997—enough to construct about 4.6 complete replicas of the ship. That's not counting money earned from the 3D re-release of the film in spring 2012.

3. New research says an optical illusion prevented the ship from receiving help 

    新研究表明视错觉使得船只无法得到及时的救援

    British historian Tim Maltin believes that the atmosphere on the night of the sinking created conditions that made it difficult for the crew to spot icebergs—and for other ships to spot the Titanic.

4. Researchers completed a map of the wreck site in 2012, using over 100,000 photos taken by underwater robots 

    利用10万张水底机器人拍回的图片,研究人员于2012年绘制了出事地点的地图。

The Associated Press reported in early March that a team of researchers completed "what's believed to be the first comprehensive map of the entire 3-by-5-mile Titanic debris field," a milestone that could lead to more insights as to what happened when the ship sank on April 15, 1912.

5. $95,000: The expected auction price for the Titanic's final lunch menu

    “泰坦尼克号”最后的午餐菜单可能会拍出95000美元

    The Telegraph reports that the actual menu will likely fetch big bucks when it hits the auction block. Millionaire Titanic passenger Benjamin Guggenheim (left), may well have eaten the meal, which included grilled mutton chops and smoked sardines.

6. More than 5,000 other artifacts will also be up for grabs

    超过5000件物品将参与竞拍

Collectors with deep pockets will be able to bid on everything from silverware to pieces of the actual boat, reports CNN. The collection of items had been priced at $189 million previously.
