The Titanic struck the iceberg at 11.40 pm on Sunday 14 April, 1912.
She finally sank beneath the waves at 2.20am on Monday April 15, 1912.
It took 2 hours and 40 minutes (160 minutes) from the collision to her final disappearance beneath the waves.
Above: Der Untergang der Titanic (The Sinking of the Titanic), an engraving made in 1912 by the German maritime artist Willy Stöwer (1864-1931). The illustration, made shortly after the sinking, and without documentary evidence, mistakenly shows smoke rising from the rearmost (4th) funnel, which was in fact used for ventilation only.
