Titanic II blueprints unveiled

An Australian billionaire is getting ready to build a new version of the Titanic that could set sail in late 2016.
Mining entrepreneur Clive Palmer unveiled blueprints for the famously doomed ship's namesake yesterday at the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum in New York.
He said work was due to start soon in China.
Mr Palmer said 40,000 people had expressed interest in tickets for the maiden voyage, taking the original course from Southampton to New York.
He said people were inspired by his quest to replicate one of the most famous vessels in history.
"We all live on this planet, we all breathe the same air and, of course, the Titanic is about the things we've got in common," he said. "It links three continents."
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.
Mr 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," he 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.
Joining Mr Palmer yesterday was Helen Benziger, the great granddaughter of Titanic survivor Margaret "Molly" Brown.
Ms Benziger, who agreed to serve on the advisory board for the Titanic II, said her great grandmother, who died in 1932, would have loved to see the Titanic rebuilt and complete the journey it never got to finish.
In what some may consider a temptation of fate for a remake of a notoriously "unsinkable" ship that sank, a representative of the Finnish designer of the Titanic II said it would be the "safest cruise ship in the world".
Markku Kanerva, director of sales for marine design company Deltamarin said that while the vessel was modelled after the legendary liner - the diesel-powered ship would even have four decorative smoke stacks mimicking the coal-powered originals - it will meet modern navigation and safety requirements.
In addition, plans call for a new "safety deck" featuring state-of-the-art lifeboats, safety chutes and slides. And the new ship will also have amenities unknown a century ago, like air conditioning.
Mr Palmer, who is funding the ship's construction himself, built his fortune in property and coal.
Australia's BRW magazine estimated his net worth last year at four billion dollars (£2.6bn), although Forbes puts it at 895 million (£593bn).
"I want to spend the money I've got before I die," he said. "You might as well spend it, not leave it to the kids to spend, there will be enough left for them anyway."
"We visit Barcelona, one of the smartest cities in the world, to find out what makes it so special. What does it look like and what is the future?"
