This reminds me, check out my storify about the Titanic 100 year anniversary here.
The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Australian billionaire mining magnate Clive Palmer has unveiled plans to build the Titanic II.
Palmer said his new company Blue Star Line Pty Ltd had commissioned the state-owned Chinese company CSC Jinling Shipyard to build a near replica of the ill-fated Titanic in China. The cost is unknown.
The ship’s maiden voyage from England to North America is scheduled for late 2016.

It’s a miracle this toddler survived. It’s always so sad when natural disasters take lives. It’s devastating to feel like we have no control, but the spirit to rebuild lives and unity in times of distress is one of the best examples of humanity.
