The RMS Titanic has played a prominent role in popular culture since her sinking in April 1912, with the loss of over 1,500 lives. The disaster and the Titanic herself have been objects of public fascination for many years. They have inspired numerous books, plays, films, songs, poems and works of art. The ship's story has been interpreted in many overlapping ways, including as a symbol of technological hubris, as basis for fail-safe improvements, as a classic disaster tale, as an indictment of the class divisions of the time, and as romantic tragedies with personal heroism. It has inspired many moral, social and political metaphors and is regularly invoked as a cautionary tale of the limitations of modernity and ambition.

RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on 15 April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton, UK to New York City, US. The sinking of Titanic caused the deaths of more than 1,500 people in one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. The RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time it entered service. Titanic was the second of three class ocean linersOlympic operated by the White Star Line, and was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast with Thomas Andrews as her naval architect. Andrews was among those lost during the sinking. On her maiden voyage, she carried 2,224 passengers and crew.

Under the command of Edward Smith, the ship's passengers included some of the wealthiest people in the world, as well as hundreds of emigrants from Great Britain and Ireland, Scandinavia and elsewhere throughout Europe seeking a new life in North America. The ship was designed to be the last word in comfort and luxury, with an on-board gymnasium, swimming pool, libraries, high-class restaurants and opulent cabins. A wireless telegraph provided for the convenience of passengers as well as for operational use. Though Titanic had advanced safety features such as watertight compartments and remotely activated watertight doors, there were not enough lifeboats to accommodate all of those aboard due to outdated maritime safety regulations. Titanic only carried enough lifeboats for 1,178 people—slightly more than half of the number on board, and one-third her total capacity.

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom (UK) or Britain (/ˈbrɪ.tən/), is a sovereign state located off the north-western coast of continental Europe. The country includes the island of Great Britain (a term sometimes loosely applied to the whole state), the north-eastern part of the island of Ireland, and many smaller islands. Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK that shares a land border with another state: the Republic of Ireland. Apart from this land border, the UK is surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, with the North Sea in the east, the English Channel in the south and the Irish Sea in the west.

Barbara Joyce Dainton (née West; 24 May 1911 – 16 October 2007) was the second-to-last remaining survivor of the sinking of the TitanicRMS on 14 April 1912 after hitting an iceberg on its maiden voyage. She was the last living survivor that traveled second-class on the ship.

Elizabeth Gladys Millvina Dean (2 February 1912 – 31 May 2009) was a British civil servant and cartographer, best known for being the last remaining survivor of the sinking of the TitanicRMS , which occurred on 15 April 1912. At 2 months old, she was also the youngest passenger aboard.

Lillian Gertrud Asplund (October 21, 1906 – May 6, 2006) was one of the last three living survivors of the sinking of the RMS Titanic on April 15, 1912; and also the last survivor with actual memories of the disaster.

Titanic Lifeboat No. 1 was the fourth lifeboat launched from the passenger liner TitanicRMS when she collided with an iceberg and subsequently began sinking on April 14, 1912. The boat was famous for being launched with only twelve people, though its capacity was 40. There is even more conflict associated with the boat in that most of the survivors on board were men, despite Captain Edward John Smith's call for "Women and children first." First Officer William McMaster Murdoch allowed First-Class passenger Sir Cosmo Duff Gordon and his wife Lucille, as well as other First-Class men and crew members in the boat, simply to fill it up. The boat was led by Mr. Alberto Edward Harold James Horsewill and Mr. George Thomas Macdonald Symons.

Lifeboat No. 1 was one of two emergency cutter lifeboats on the Titanic swung out to be launched quickly in the event of an emergency. The other one was Lifeboat No. 2 on the opposite side of the ship. The No. 1 Lifeboat and its passengers were picked up by the Titanic's rescue ship, the CarpathiaRMS . The boat's occupants were subsequently photographed by a passenger on the Carpathia. After the disaster, a British inquiry of the Titanic disaster accused the Duff-Gordons of bribing those in the boat to not look for survivors or pull people who were close by into the lifeboat. However, a letter written by their secretary, Miss Laura Mabel Francatelli (who was also in the boat with them) clears them of any wrongdoing.

A disaster is a natural or man-made (or technological) hazard resulting in an event of substantial extent causing significant physical damage or destruction, loss of life, or drastic change to the environment. A disaster can be ostensively defined as any tragic event stemming from events such as earthquakes, floods, catastrophic accidents, fires, or explosions. It is a phenomenon that can cause damage to life and property and destroy the economic, social and cultural life of people.

In contemporary academia, disasters are seen as the consequence of inappropriately managed risk. These risks are the product of a combination of both hazard/s and vulnerability. Hazards that strike in areas with low vulnerability will never become disasters, as is the case in uninhabited regions.

In journalism, a human interest story is a feature story that discusses a person or people in an emotional way. It presents people and their problems, concerns, or achievements in a way that brings about interest, sympathy or motivation in the reader or viewer.

Human interest stories may be "the story behind the story" about an event, organization, or otherwise faceless historical happening, such as about the life of an individual soldier during wartime, an interview with a survivor of a natural disaster, a random act of kindness or profile of someone known for a career achievement.
