Ten Seconds

It was 99 years ago today that the Titanic sank, and we are more fascinated by her than ever!

Something I found interesting, that shows how life can change in a blink of an eye, is this:

If the iceburg had been spotted 10 seconds earlier, there would have been time to steer the ship clear. If it had been spotted 10 seconds later, there would have been no time to turn the ship and she would have hit the iceburg head-on. This would have caused considerable damage, but she would have stayed afloat so that the passengers could be rescued.

Who says 10 seconds don’t make a difference? It really makes you think…
