100 Years Ago: right about now

Captain Smith and J. Bruce Ismay arrive on the bridge along with the ships architect, Thomas Andrews.  Reviewing reports of flooding from the mail room and other parts of the ship, the math doesn’t look good.  We only have one or two hours left.  With this much damage Titanic is going to sink and it’s unlikely any help can get here before it does.  And the worse news is that there are lifeboats available for only about half of the people onboard.
