The Sinking of the Titanic
Over 100 years later, we are still learning painful lessons from the Titanic. Oil spills, nuclear accidents, and space shuttle explosions have all been caused by simple mistakes. As in the case of the Titanic, these advanced technologies gave people the false belief that they couldn’t fail. As a result, they were not able to avoid the disaster. The Titanic tragedy is still a reminder that no matter how impressive a technology is, poor decision making or planning can still lead to horrible consequences.
