Friday, June 8: The SS Titanic -- Eatontown, NJ -- NOT at Denny's
About the Speaker: Jim Poserina is an eighteen-year member of Central New Jersey Mensa and a lifelong history buff. In 2017, he and a partner had a perfect game on the Discovery show Cash Cab with celebrity guest teammate, Jeff Garlin. During the day, he's a computer programmer at Rutgers University.
Jim will describe history's most famous shipwreck as a tragedy, a human drama, a microcosm of society, the symbolic end of the Gilded Age and the Edwardian Era, a rebuke against man's faith in technology, or simply, a very big ship that hit an iceberg and sank. But first and foremost, it was a transportation accident, made possible only if a long series of events all went wrong. This presentation will cover the Titanic story, from the reasons it was constructed, to the causes of the accident and the intrigue surrounding its discovery.
The latest theories will be discussed and myths dispelled.
