Ever heard the story of the RMS Titanic and thought: "Wish I'd been there"?
Well, now you can be. Sort of: A replica of the ship, which infamously was declared "unsinkable" and promptly sank on its maiden voyage after hitting an iceberg in 1912, killing 1,503 people, is being built for a whole new journey across the Atlantic.
The Titanic II project is the ambitious brainchild of Australian billionaire Clive Palmer. The real estate/coal mining magnate had announced his plans in 2012 to have it ready for this year, then ran aground for a time. But now, apparently, the ship will sail after all.
It won't be precisely like the original: In order to meet modern safety standards, reported the Belfast Telegraph, it will have a welded and not riveted hull and be about four yards wider. But like the original, it will have first, second and third-class tickets for sale.
