The unsinkable ship that sank- ThE Titanic

the Titanic set sail for the first time from Southampton to New York City but never arrived since it sank in the Atlantic ocean, on the 15th April, 1912. It was its maiden voyage and the 1st class interior was inspired by the Ritz hotel in London, England, UK. There were people staying in 1st, 2nd and 3rd class rooms- Where you stayed depended on how much money you had. More people from 1st and 2nd class survived because they were given priority because of their money and were closer to the lifeboats. Women and Children were allowed on to the lifeboats first. Why did this happen? There were many possible reasons why HMS Titanic crashed so here is what the BBC Said:

Antarctica

The Antarctica is in the Southern hemisphere and the Arctic is within the Northern hemisphere. Did you know that only one percent of Antarctica is ice? The rest is just frost. The Antarctica has plants but not as many as the Arctic since it is much more colder in Antarctica than the Arctic. Temperatures can range from -13.5 degrees to -63 degrees. Summer and winter are at opposite times of the year with winter starting in June and summer starting in December. There are fewer animals as well, only the Wingless midge, and different types of penguin. Nobody lives there all the time; scientists are only there for 1 or 2 years for scientific research.
