Some would quibble with the cracking like an egg, though.
Not me! I thought it was neat! Good work, Aaron!

Hi Jeremy,

I didn't think you were. I know what you were saying! I was just saying I thought the animation was great which it is! Egg like cracks and all!

It would also agree with Walter Lord's description of the sinking in his book!

Who were the red-headed woman and blond boy hanging on to the stern? <g>

Seriously, I thought this was great and it included something I hadn't thought about before: the bow lost power immediately after the breakup, while the stern kept power for a while longer. Makes great sense, actually, and I wonder why I've never heard it mentioned before.

Maybe, but the wiring had definitely been broken to the bow section. There is no way the power to the bow could have been maintained after the breakup.

Regarding the lighting situation during and after the break up, think about the steam pipes connecting the generators to the boiler rooms and their respective locations.

>>However I dont know how the terrible noises before the breakup correspond with the low angle break.<<

Symptoms of the breakup already being underway. What was seen was the dramatic finale, but it didn't just happen out of the clear blue air. A frame giving up the ghost here, excessive strain on other structural members there, it all adds up. In the end, it doesn't matter that the final break happened at a low or a high angle. What matters is that it happened and breakups are noisy events.
