On the night of 14-15 April 1912 the Titanic, the world's largest passenger steamship at the time, sank after hitting an iceberg. The closest ship, the HMS Carpathia, after hearing Titanic's distress signals rushed to its rescue. Nearly 60 miles away, the Carpathia took about four hours to reach the Titanic's last known position.
