On the 2nd April 1912 the Titanic set off on its great voyage to America it was on the water for 4 days before hitting an iceberg and sinking 2hours and 40 minutes later. The Titanic was remarkable because, for its time, it was the biggest man-made ship. It had the biggest capacity and the most elaborate cabin areas, surpassing those before it and even its twin sister. It was claimed to be unsinkable, the first ship to ever be able to say this but unfortunately it sunk. It was an important event because so many people died when the ship sank, partly because of the lack of lifeboats, after the sinking no ship was allowed to set sail unless there were enough lifeboats for everyone on the ship.
(live science.com) One of the most memorable rogue wave occurrences was on October 30, 1991. It was called the perfect storm. According to CNN.com, an enormous extra tropical low is creating havoc along the entire Eastern Atlantic Seaboard in this infrared image at 1200 UTC (0700 EST) on October 30, 1991. Labeled the "perfect storm" by the National Weather Service, the storm sank the sword fishing boat Andrea Gail, whose story became the basis for the currently best-selling novel "The Perfect Storm" by Sebastian Junger. Ocean waves peaked at 100 feet, the height of 10-story buildings.

This starts the chain of letters between the father and daughter. The only of his children to inherit his brilliance, Galileo once states that she was, "a woman of exquisite mind, singular goodness, and most tenderly attached to me. "Galileo chose to have Suor Maria Celeste as his confidant. When, at the age of thirty-three, Maria Celeste met her untimely death from dysentery, Galileo wrote to a friend, "I feel immense sadness and melancholy...and continually hear my beloved daughter calling to me." The authors purpose of writing this book is to inform the readers of not only the relationship between Galileo and Maria, but also to show Maria’s genuine interest in her father's scientific work, sometimes even offering her own opinion on issues.
Prize-winning author Ann Patchett ("Bel Canto," "Truth and Beauty," "The Magician's Assistant") once confessed that the single most important artistic influence on her work is "The Poseidon Adventure," the 1933 Paul Gallico potboiler that was made into a classic 1970s action-adventure-disaster movie featuring Gene Hackman and Ernest Borgnine fighting their way out of a luxury liner capsized by a 100-foot tidal wave. Patchett explained, "['The Poseidon Adventure'] was the first time I saw something that made me think, Oh, that's what plot is: you're going along, it's fine, then everything turns upside down; people band together, sacrifices are made, there's passion, there's loss, there's a journey and at the end you cut a hole in the boat and

is by far the most regretful and inconsiderate action (to its citizens/passengers) the nation could have taken at such a war-driven time period in history. In Germany, newspaper reports on the sinking stated to its readers, “the Lusitania was an ‘armed cruiser’ carrying munitions and other war supplies and was therefore a legitimate target” (Ballard 126). Oceanographer and underwater archaeologist, Dr. Robert Ballard explains in an recent personal interview, “I was interested in what really sank the ship since the German submarine only fired one torpedo yet there were two explosions with the second being the more powerful of the two” (Robert D. Ballard). Germany had a strong belief that the U.S. was using passenger ships to send aid to enemy countries like the British and at this time, the U.S. already had numerous powder and explosive factories that produced war materials in mass
Robert Arneson is an American sculpture during the late 20th century and one of hiswork I think is fascinating is the awesome Global Death and Destruction (1982-3). I would say this sculpture is the most chilling and dark sculpture in the museum. The medium of the art piece is stoneware with glazes. "WAR MEMORIAL" is inscribed on the front and the Engravings of a mushroom cloud, a head and a missile decorate the sides of the base could suggest a future nuclear catastrophe. A painting that caught my interest was The Accident (1899) by the Belgian painter Williem Geets.
