Titanic: Tragedy in Three Dimensions

The Titanic plunged into the deathly cold waters of the North Atlantic in 1912; decades later, she still stirs intense interest. Why? Writer and shipwreck scholar Steven Biel argues that “Titanicmania is the product of pure hype.” Do you agree? Or does the tragedy touch something deeper in human souls?
