Titanic 12:45 AM 15April 1912


First Officer Murdoch launches the first life boat, life boat number 7 from the starboard (right) side. The first distress rocket is fired.  The rockets are spotted by the SS Californian, but misunderstood.

The next day, at top speed through the icefield in daylight, it will take SS Californian 2 hours to get to the wreck site. Titanic now has 1 hour and 45 minutes left, almost all of those who go into the water will die of hypothermia within 15 minutes. The people in the water will literally freeze to death.

Titanic's rockets were fired one at a time, but this is what they would have looked like. U.S. Army Capt. Andrew Fleagle, 1st Battalion, 12th Infantry Regiment fire support officer, observes illumination rounds fired during Operation Tora Arwa V in the Kandahar province Aug. 2. The illumination rounds were fired from M777 Howitzers and are used to help illuminate a certain area the Soldiers need to see. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
