01E04 (2011) Science Documentary hosted by Stephen Hawking and Adam Savage, published by Discovery Channel in 2011 - English narration What Sank Titanic ? It has been almost 100 years since the sinking of the Titanic. We think we know the story, but how much do we actually know about what went wrong? In the aftermath of the disaster, a full trial was conducted. Curiosity gives us a unique take with harrowing first person testimony from those who survived. This special will take those highly emotive human stories and for the first time use them as pieces of an enormous detective story. We will forensically piece together the precise mechanics of what went wrong and answer this question: How was the greatest piece of structural engineering in human history defeated by one of the simplest elements on the planet - water?
