Titanic II to be build

Jag tycker detta är så sjukt spännande. Bilionären Clive Palmer gör sig just nu beredd för att göra en exakt replica av skeppet som gick på grund för över 100 år sedan. 
The original Titanic was the world's largest and most luxurious ocean liner when it hit an iceberg in the North Atlantic and sank on April 15, 1912. Only 700 people of the more than 2,200 on board survived the most famous maritime disaster in history, partly because there were not enough lifeboats to carry everyone.
Palmer said an unknown when the original ship sailed – climate change – may play into a positive for the new ship's fate.
"One of the benefits of global warming is there hasn't been as many icebergs in the North Atlantic these days," Palmer said.
Passengers on board the replica will dress in the fashion of that period and eat dishes from the original menu, in dining rooms copied from the ill-fated predecessor.
"I want to spend the money I've got before I die. You might as well spend it, not leave it to the kids to spend, there will be enough left for them anyway." Palmer said.
