Titanic was designed by Thomas Andrews and was made as a passenger ship to take passengers from England to America (New York) on her maiden voyage. Who knows, maybe after Titanic's voyages, like many other ships of the time period, she could have become a vessel that was used for war purposes .

Titanic started her maiden voyage in Belfast, Ireland then set off to many other locations to pick up more passengers before officially setting off to New York.

Titanic was powered by coal. Not just any coal, since the coal miners were striking at the time of her maiden voyage, the owner of the ship took coal out of their other ships to ensure Titanic had enough coal for the voyage.

Most of the coal was delivered directly but there was a coal strike on at the time so much of it had to be removed from other ships to guarantee Titanic's maiden launch. This caused several vessels to be temporarily decommissioned and their passengers transferred to Titanic.

No other ship besides the RMS Carpathia came to the rescue. Because, the Titanic sent out SOS' but the Carpathia was the closest. However, the Carpathia was too late to even see the RMS Titanic sink.

There were separate quarters for unattached women and men on Titanic but there was no segregation by gender per se. There were accommodations for women and men,like the reading room and smoking room, but neither were expressly forbidden from the other.

The Titanic failed to complete its first journey. During its maiden voyage, it received iceberg warnings from other ships. The warnings were ignored and on April 14, 1912, the ship hit an iceberg. The Titanic sank at around 2am on April 15, 1912 in the middle of the north Atlantic Ocean

Unlikely. If the Titanic hadn't sunk on its maiden voyage, it wouldn't have been remembered. Barring other accidents, it'd have remained in use unti it was no longer profitable, at which point it'd been cut up for scrap and recycled.

As The Titanic was leaving Southampton, the Suction of water from her wake caused the SS New York to pull from her moorings and head straight for the Titanic. With the quick thinking of Captain Smith in putting the engines in reverse, the Collision was avoided with just four feet to spare!

No. Both ships were built alongside each other, with Olympic being completed first. However, they did replace Olympic's propeller shaft by taking the one off Titanic (stemming from a collision with the HMS Hawke). Later, Olympic lost a propeller blade, and it was again taken from Titanic. Both acquisitions delayed Titanic's maiden voyage until April 2012.
