Visualization of time is usually about compression so that you can see more in less minutes. This animation, however, shows the Titanic sinking in near real-time, over 2 hours and 40 minutes.
My knee-jerk reaction was, wow, that’s a long time for everyone to get to safety, but let’s not forget this was in the freakin’ ocean in 1912. So you know, there’s that. [via kottke]
