(CNN) – The infamous sinking of the RMS Titanic happened 101 years ago on Sunday.
The so-called "unsinkable" British luxury liner hit an iceberg in the northern Atlantic on the night of April 14, 1912. It sank less than three hours later, and about 1,500 people died.
The Titanic was on its maiden voyage between England and New York.
