Overview

Deutsche Übersetzung des Originaltitels ”What Really Sank The Titanic – New Forensic Discoveries“ von den Autoren Jennifer Hooper McCarty und Tim Foecke.
Das Buch berichtet über die spannenden forensischen Forschungen der beiden amerikanischen Autoren mit einem eindeutigen Ergebnis für den Grund, weshalb die als ”unsinkbar“ geltende Titanic nicht einmal ganze drei Stunden nach der Kollision mit dem Eisberg unterging.
Esist ein Loblied auf die Materialwissenschaft und Metallkunde. Es zeigt ferner anhand des Untergangs der Titanic, dass es unbedingt zu vermeiden ist, ein neues Produkt unter großem Zeitdruckzu entwickeln. Schließlich war es auch das Übermaß an zu viel Ehrgeiz bei der möglichst schnellen Jungfernfahrt der Titanic, das zu der Katastrophe geführt hat.
Die amerikanischen Längenangaben im Text wurden generell in metrische Einheiten umgerechnet. In besonders wichtigen Fällen wurde die amerikanische Einheit in Klammern hinzugefügt.
