1912 - Titanic: the maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City

The Titanic was the largest passenger steamship in the world at the time of her launching, and her builders hoped that she would dominate the transatlantic ocean liner business. During her maiden voyage she struck an iceberg and sank, on April 14, 1912, at 11:40 P.M. The sinking resulted in great loss of life, ranking as one of the worst peacetime maritime disasters in history, and by far the most famous.

In addition, the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences was awarded for the first time beginning in 1969.

Since then, new forms and types appear on the market every day.
