    Aside: I read a study that looked at the impact of the Titanic and other iceberg impacts, and hypothesized that if the Titanic hadn't tried to maneuver to miss the iceberg, it would have hit head-on and survived, since only the bow compartments would have flooded.

    But probably not at the higher speed that it was still going

    The captain was pressured to maintain a higher speed despite
    iceberg warnings.
