Examining ShipwrecksBook - 2015
"Did you know that ships have been around for more than 4,000 years? Over time, technology has improved significantly, causing the number of shipwrecks to decline. More than a century after the Titanic went down, the South Korean ferry Sewol sank in April 2014, claiming 304 lives. This disaster could have been prevented if the ship had not hit something underwater, as the Titanic had. In this book, you'll examine why ships sink and what experts are doing to prevent future shipwrecks"--Back cover.
