Ship called Titan in Morgan Robertson novel hits iceberg published 14 years before the Titanic

  1. On 15 April 1912 the RMS Titanic sunk on her maiden voyage and over 1,500 people died. Fourteen years earlier a novel was published by Morgan Robertson which seemed to foretell the disaster. The book described a ship the same size as the Titanic which crashes into an iceberg on its maiden voyage on a misty April night. The name of Robertson's fictional ship was the Titan

This example of a book shows how art can provided clues to solve Catastrophe Theory problems.
