Titanic II – Australian billionaire wants to build a luxury liner just like the original ship
An Australian billionaire wants to launch another Titanic and has commissioned a Chinese company to build it, according to the BBC.
Clive Palmer, who made his fortune from mining, says the luxury liner will be based as far as possible on the original design and specifications – but with modern technology.
"It will be every bit as luxurious as the original Titanic but of course it will have state-of-the-art 21st Century technology and the latest navigation and safety systems," he said in a statement.
Hopefully, the "technology" will be good enough to dodge a few icebergs.
