20 Movie Stars you can't recognize under their Makeup Mask (Photo and Video)

4 months ago

Applying makeup during filming is not a quick process. Mainly when not only the image of the character depends on it but also on the film's overall success. The Deadpool actors must endure many hours of sitting in the make-up chair and all their manipulations, sometimes reminiscent of “torture.”


Changed beyond recognition! What makeup can do to actors


Bemorepanda found examples of what actors go through to make their on-screen characters stand out and memorable. For example, make-up for 8-9 hours. And this, it turns out, is not the most challenging thing that they sometimes have to face.


1. 8-9 hours, Rebecca Romijn as Mystique in X-Men


“It was a nine-hour make-up process. Throughout three films, we managed to cut it down to seven hours, but it was still... a lot. And I realized pretty quickly that this was my job, which was to apply all this makeup! — Rebecca Romijn, Looper


2. 8-9 hours, Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique in X-Men: First Class


In First Class, the filmmakers stayed accurate to Rebecca Romijn's original costume. But for Jennifer Lawrence, the body paint caused such severe skin irritation that she had to call a doctor. For the next film, X-Men: Days of Future Past, they switched to bodysuits. It also helped save all that time on set.


“I'm so excited because I'm going to wear a tight suit. It will be from the neck down so that it will cut time and blisters." - Jennifer Lawrence.


3. 8.5 hours, Jim Carrey as the Grinch in The Grinch Stole Christmas


The process of putting on makeup and costume took so long that the film producer brought in a CIA officer whose job was to help people endure torture.


4. 8 hours, Halle Berry as Jocasta Ayres (and five other characters) in Cloud Atlas


In addition to her role as Jocasta Ayres, Berry is also known as:


- Louise Ray


- Ovid


- Meronym


- Native woman


- Indian party guest


5. 8 hours, Christian Bale as Dick Cheney in "Power."


“In the old days, when we were sculpting foam fixtures, we would reshape the jaw and chin area a bit because it would compress a bit. But now, in silicone, we must accentuate the cheekbones and jawlines because his weight pulls him down. So it isn't easy. It would help if you had to know what you're doing." — Makeup artist Greg Cannom, Vox.


6. 7-8 hours, John Hurt as John Merrick in The Elephant Man


The make-up for John Hurt, resembling the real-life John Merrick, was created using the casts of Merrick's body in the Royal London Hospital.


7. 7 hours, Jamie Campbell Bower as Vecna ​​in Stranger Things 4


Take a behind-the-scenes look below for a closer look at the process.




8. 7 hours, Michael Dorn as Worf in Star Trek: The Next Generation


According to Michael Dorn, over time, the makeup process has become easier:


“Now it's not that weird because it used to be quite difficult because they used a lot of glue and makeup. It was just a natural process."


9. 7 hours, Ryan Reynolds as Wade Wilson in Deadpool


Seven hours is a very long time, and the makeup artists were uneasy when Ryan Reynolds once pranked them by ripping it all off after they were done.


Here's how it was:




10. 6 hours, Arnold Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze in "Batman and Robin."


For some close-up shots, Arnold had to put an LED in his mouth, and at some point, it became quite dangerous:


“When you put it in Arnold's mouth, Arnold's saliva seeps into the seams of this thing and attacks the batteries. Batteries begin to disintegrate, and battery acid may begin to enter Arnold's mouth." — Makeup artist Jeff Dawn, THR.


11. 6 hours, Gary Oldman as Mason Verger in Hannibal


Greg Cannom, who worked with Christian Bale on The Authority, was Hannibal's makeup artist:


“I knew we could get away with [Oldman] more than any other actor. He first said, "Can we open my eye?" It's disgusting. I showed people pictures of [Oldman as Verger], and they all just said, “Oh my God!” and left, which made me very happy.” — Cannom, The Guardian.


12. 5-6 hours, Doug Bradley as Hellraiser in Hellraiser


“The process started with Clive sketching out his ideas that we had to work through together, and then we came up with other ideas based on those sketches. Initially, Pinhead was not at all what he is now. He was much more like Nightbreed's Shunu Sassi character, with only needles sticking out of the top of his head. I looked at it and thought, "Clive [Barker, director], we can't do it with that budget." I knew this makeup would last six days, and we couldn't do it on such a tight budget. He said, "Okay, let's think about it." That's when we came up with this grid pattern on a lifecast to determine where we were going to insert what were originally supposed to be six-inch nails. Clive looked at the mesh and decided he liked its symmetry, so we left it in place." — Makeup artist Bob Keane, DailyDead.


13. 5 hours, Brad Pitt as Benjamin Button in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button


Greg Cannom ("Power," "Hannibal") is back in business:


“I had time to get it right, which I don’t usually do in a film. We did intensive tests for two weeks before filming started at every age and did make-up after make-up. The make-up had to work. Otherwise, the film wouldn't have worked." — Kann, Variety.


14. 5 hours, John Matuszak as Sloth in The Goonies


Back in 2019, 34 years after the release of The Goonies, test shots of the Sloth makeup were finally found.


15. 5 hours Dave Bautista as Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy 


“Drax started with a five-hour make-up, and gradually the time began to decrease, as expected. Such extensive makeup is a real challenge for the team because it is so complex.


“Every day, a plastic mold was offered that was the exact shape of David's body, with perforated holes indicating where the prosthesis begins and ends. Through it, a drawing showing a map was applied to rice paper.


“All teams had different tasks in this sequence. Some begin the application of paint, while others complete the shading of the dentures. We added subtle layers of browns, reds, and greens to the base gray to break up the tone and spice it up before the final color unwrapping.


"The whole body is then sealed with a retainer so that it can withstand daytime shooting." — Makeup artist David White, Business Insider.


16. 5 hours, Zoe Saldana as Gamora in Guardians of the Galaxy 


“This time, I was picked up at three in the morning - my dog ​​was not even happy about it. I had to sit for five hours for five months. It was crazy, but it paid off. The film is fantastic." — Zoe Saldana, US Weekly.


17. 5 hours, Jeff Goldblum as Seth Brundle in The Fly


“Yes, Chris Wallace got an Oscar for it. And Stéphane Dupuis put me in the dentist's chair for five hours and used this thing. And then another hour after we finished… well, you know, labor, labor, labor… took it off. This suit is a little tight... the rubber suit... so I look so... ugly. And then prosthetics. — Jeff Goldblum, Yahoo.


18. 6 hours, Arnold Schwarzenegger as Terminator in Terminator 2: Judgment Day


“Maria walked onto the set in the midst of filming Terminator 2. And then she saw me - when half of the face disappeared, and the eye lit up. All this weird makeup... So she started screaming and crying on set because she didn't understand why dad looked like that." - Arnold Schwarzenegger.


19. 5 hours, Marion Cotillard as Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose


Marion Cotillard didn't mind the five-hour make-up because she's a big fan of Edith Piaf and wanted to give her credit:


“It was very stressful, but she was a powerful person. I love tragedy. Not in my life. But I love to play a tragedy. It allows me to express so many things. At the same time, I feel empty and full of emotions; I feel alive." — Marion Cotillard, Under the Radar.


20. 5 hours, Tim Curry as Lord of Darkness in "Legend."


“We had terrible negotiations about what parts of me would be visible. I fought and begged to have my own eyes… My eyes were solid contact lenses, like wolf or cat eyes, which were very painful to install because they took a cast of your eye and inserted it into your eye. If it hurt, they scratched him a little until he stopped hurting.” — Tim Curry, Legend commentary.

The most romantic and promising night is expected in 2022 from 12 to 13 August. It is during this period, according to scientists, that the peak of the meteor shower will occur. We will tell you at what time there will be the most shooting stars, and how to make wishes correctly so that they come true.


Perseid meteor shower 2022



How and when to watch the Perseid meteor shower in August?


The effect of the meteor shower is generated by particles from the tail of comet Swift-Tuttle. Moving along a highly elongated orbit, it makes one revolution around the Sun in 133 years. When approaching a star, the comet's nucleus partially evaporates, and the gases carry dust and small stones with them, forming a bright tail behind it. Despite their small size (only a few millimeters), they have tremendous speed, therefore, crashing into the atmosphere, they flash very brightly. Particles hit the earth's atmosphere at a speed of 53 km/s.


The Perseid meteor shower phenomenon occurs annually. Its peak is in mid-August. This year, the conditions for observing meteorites are especially favorable, since the maximum activity of the stream falls on the period when it will be night in Europe. In addition, a new moon is expected on August 11, which means that moonlight will not interfere with observations.


Where is the best place to watch the Perseid meteor shower?



The Perseids will be best seen in places where the sky is not covered by clouds. To observe the meteor shower, you do not need special equipment (telescopes, tubes, binoculars). It is enough to go further out of the city (30-50 kilometers) so that light pollution is minimal. Astronomers advise to observe the Perseids to get to where the eastern or southern part of the horizon is more open. Stop looking at bright light sources (flashlights, smartphones, campfires) 15 minutes before observations so that your eyes get used to the darkness. If you have poor eyesight, don't forget to wear glasses. In addition, the nights get noticeably colder in August, so be sure to bring warm clothes with you just in case. The best thing to do when observing a meteor shower is to lie down (bring a mattress) and try to observe the night sky continuously for 15 minutes (or even better).


When is the best time to watch the Perseid meteor shower?



It is best to observe the Perseid meteor shower (it is also often called meteor shower) on the night of August 11-12 and from August 12-13. The maximum peak of the flow activity falls on the night from the 12th to the 13th. Observation should start at 22 pm and continue until about 3 am. It will be possible to observe falling meteorites on other nights, but it is during this period of time that there will be maximum meteor activity. According to the International Meteor Organization (IMO), this weekend the frequency of meteors will reach 120 per hour.


Is it possible to photograph falling meteorites?


Yes. Having a SLR camera and the skill of working with long exposures.


When is the next meteor shower?


The Perseid shower is an annual phenomenon. Those who are not lucky this time with the weather and cloud cover will be able to try their luck next year.


The next meteor shower called the Draconids can be observed from 8 to 10 October. These are other meteor showers, and they are not as active as the Perseids. Their predicted falling frequency is about 15-20 meteors per hour.


How to make wishes so that they come true


1. Think about what you most want. Formulate your desire as clearly, concisely and clearly as possible. No need to describe exactly how everything should happen, just set a goal.


It is believed that one should always leave the Universe a place for creativity. Desires never come true in the way we imagine it to be, therefore it is better to concentrate on the ultimate goal, and let the Universe choose the path to fulfilling the dream on its own.


Refuse "not" and negativity in the formulation of desire.


2. A prepared desire should be written down on a piece of paper. From excitement, you can forget the correct wording, and you simply won’t have time to think - the particles of the comet burn out literally in an instant.



3. You can prepare a few wishes, but don't get too carried away. Choose the most intimate.


4. Sit comfortably by a window, on a balcony, in a park or countryside. For safety reasons, you should not be alone outside the house. Invite someone close to you whom you trust. Together it's safer and more fun.


5. When the "shooting star" appears in the sky, say your desire loudly and clearly. Then thank the Universe.


6. Let go of your dream. Try not to think about it anymore, not to dream about its fulfillment and not to talk to anyone about this. Don't expect your dream to come true instantly. Obsession will only hinder implementation. Give the universe time and opportunity to improvise.


Interesting details about meteors



The origin of meteor showers is associated with comets. There is a hypothesis that meteor showers were formed as a result of the decay of existing or once existing comets.


There are quite a lot of such falling meteor showers every year. There is even a calendar when you can see this fantastic sight in all its splendor. Each meteor shower has its own name: Lyrids, Draconids, Orionids, Leonids. Astronomers know about the existence of 64 large meteor formations.


It is worth noting that there are still "meteor showers", which are formed from the destruction of meteorites. These fragments of cosmic strangers can be quite large and often reach the surface of the Earth. Such phenomena are called "meteorite showers".


In addition to knowing the exact date of the upcoming star extravaganza, you must follow a few simple rules. To see "shooting stars" it is necessary that there be no clouds, that there are no luminous windows, lanterns and other lights of the "big city". And also, that there was no moon. The moon in all phases other than the new moon gives a fairly bright light, which significantly overshadows the picture of falling meteors.


We call star falls an astronomical phenomenon, which has the scientific name "meteor shower". A meteor shower occurs when the Earth enters a meteor swarm - there are areas where there are many small bodies, more cosmic dust, but fewer asteroids. But what are these bodies and why are there many of them in these areas?



Meteor swarms are formed during the destruction of comets - complete, when the comet breaks up, or partial, when it continues to exist, but leaves behind a trail of such particles. For the prediction of meteor showers, the reasons why comets are destroyed are not so important, but it is important that meteor swarms approximately coincide with the comet's trajectory and do not fly anywhere far from it. That is why meteor showers are observed at the same time of the year: the Earth makes an annual rotation around the Sun and every year passes through the same areas of meteor swarms that were left from different comets.


Therefore, every year we see the same starfalls. The peculiarity lies only in the fact that the meteor shower does not coincide with the full moon, which will prevent it from being seen.


Of course, not only a fragment of a comet from a meteor swarm can act as a meteor body. Many celestial bodies of the right size and hitting the Earth's atmosphere at the right speed can look like a shooting star. It can be, for example, a single fragment of an asteroid. But such phenomena are poorly predictable, their moment is difficult to catch. Therefore, it is meteor showers that are of interest when the Earth passes through a meteor shower, when you can simply watch the sky and, with a high probability, see a shooting star.

We must recognize that most of us, do not read what is on the list of ingredients on cosmetics, or we do not understand the meaning of all those words. If we had enough knowledge, we would be surprised at what we really use.


The expensive perfume contains feces and whale vomit


Ambergris is a yellow, waxy, solid substance that is produced in the whale's intestines to protect them from the sharp objects they sometimes swallow. It is often called "sea gold". Just half a pound of feces or whale vomit can be worth up to $ 10,000. Whales either vomit the substance or eliminate it along with their feces.


Most lipsticks contain broken parasitic beetles


Cactus beetles (Dactylopius Coccus) are small insects that feed on cactus plants in Central and South America. Cochineal female beetles eat the red fruits of cacti, so when the beetles are crushed, a very strong red dye is produced.


Cochineal dye has been used for centuries and is very safe for most people, so it is commonly used in lipstick, ice cream, candy, yogurt and eyeshadow. In fact, Starbucks admitted a few years ago that they used a red cochineal dye in some of their drinks, which turned out to be a big problem for their vegetarian fans.


Animal fat in lipstick, eyeshadow and soap


Seoul is a common ingredient in many cosmetics. It is present in: eyeshadows, lipsticks, foundations, shampoos, shaving soaps, moisturizers and skin care products. Seoul is made from animal carcasses.

Seoul is made from animal fat, which means boiling carcasses to create fat products. Dead animals used to make tallow come from many sources, including laboratories, slaughterhouses, zoos, shelters, and yes, animals killed on the road are also used.


Bull semen in hair products


Due to its high protein content, bull semen has become a popular ingredient in hair products. Used mainly for dry or damaged hair, the semen is mixed with a plant called Katera and applied to the hair in expensive beauty salons. The process takes about 45 minutes, costs about $ 90-120 dollars and has been described as "Viagra for hair."


Snail secretions in moisturizers


Snail exudate is collected and used as an ingredient in many famous moisturizers. Glycolic acid and elastin in snail secretion protect the skin from wounds, bacteria and UV rays, making it a great source of protein that removes dead cells and regenerates the skin. It is also useful for removing scars, stretch marks and curing acne.


Infant foreskin in anti-aging products


The recovery complex marketed by TNS SkinMedica claims to use cells derived from human infantile foreskin (NouriCel-MD) in a "revolutionary" line of anti-aging products. Using a combination of soluble collagen, antioxidants, natural growth factors and proteins, they claim to slow down the aging process and encourage the growth of new cells for a younger complexion.

Many companies have already announced that they have given up some of these ingredients, opting for "more pleasant" alternatives, but others, given their effect, will not do so too soon.

The first official trailer was released for the new version of the 1990 film, which became a cult hit, "Home Alone". In the new film, Macaulay Culkin is replaced by 12-year-old actor Archie Yates.

Industry sources say that Yates - who played the lead role in the Golden Globe-nominated film "Jojo Rabbit" - will not resume the legendary role of Kevin McCallister, but will play a new character included in the famous franchise.

The subject of the film repeats the popular 1990 feature film: the boy is forgotten by his parents before the Christmas holidays, and in the absence of parental control he enjoys freedom: he eats sweets as much as he wants and even offers harsh resistance to robbers who decide to rob the house in the middle of the holiday.

Macaulay Culkin, judging by the trailer, will not appear in the new version of the movie "Home Alone", but one of the members of the McCallister family will definitely return to the small screens. In one of the frames, the audience will see the older brother of the protagonist of the original film, Buzz, who has now grown up and become a policeman and patrols that area.

The director is Dan Mather, known to the audience for directing the films: "Bruno", "Bridget Jones 3" and "Office Christmas Party". The premiere of the new version of the film will take place on November 12 on the Disney + streaming platform.

Theseries "Squid Game" enjoys a resounding success, reaching the trend not only on Netflix, but also on other platforms such as TikTok or Twitter. However, because the games in the series could be imitated, schools began to send warning letters.

The series is based on a series of games that the characters must win in order to move on to the next stage. However, not everyone manages to complete the tasks. In fact, those who fail to perform the tests end up being killed. For this reason, more and more schools have begun to warn parents to pay more attention to the behavior that children also have to watch what they watch. Especially now that they can easily get to this series.

Sandown school representatives in Deal, Kent, said that teachers held lessons about online safety and the dangers of watching content that "is not age-appropriate."Goodwin Academy, another school in Deal, also confirmed that it had sent a letter warning parents not to allow their children to watch the "Squid Game."

A father even wrote on Twitter that he received a letter from the school where he was warned that parents could be penalized if the little ones were caught playing their own version of the Squid Game. 

"Squid Game"was released on Netflix on September 17, and was written by Hwang Dong-hyuk. In each episode, the characters participate in the bloody versions of traditional children's games, they must emerge victorious in order to move on and stay alive.

The Titanic is one of the most infamous ships of the 20th century. A lot of books have been written about him and a decent number of films have been shot, both documentaries and feature films. We think we won’t be mistaken if we say that the majority’s idea of ​​this ship is probably based on the film adaptation of the movie Titanic, shot by James Cameron in 1997. But it is important to distinguish fiction from real facts, because cinema is what cinema is for, which is primarily intended to attract the attention of viewers with an interesting plot. The script may be based on the fact of something, but this does not mean that the director will thoroughly follow what really happened and will not add something of his own.


The ship and the mystery of the disaster still surprises


There are a lot of facts about the Titanic on the Internet, and it is difficult to figure out which of them are true and which are false. We at Bemorepanda have tried to collect facts from sources that are trustworthy. Below you can find some facts about the Titanic that you didn't know or that were altered in the movie to add drama to the story.


So, are you ready to sail the sea of facts with the Titanic?



1. Without her husband Isidore, Ida Strauss stubbornly refused to board a lifeboat.


Ida and Isidore Strauss, founders of the New York department store Macy's, are perhaps one of the most tragic love stories during the sinking of the Titanic. Ida did not board the lifeboat without her husband, who refused the seat when offered because he knew there were still women and children on board. “Where you are, there I am,” she said to her husband. The couple died together, holding hands.


2. The youngest passenger on the Titanic was a two-month-old baby.

Milvina Dean was not only the oldest survivor, but also the youngest passenger on board. She passed away in 2009 at the age of 97. —


3. The Chief Baker Was In The Water For Two Hours Before He Was Rescued.


It is said that before it was discovered, the head baker, Charles Joughin, had been swimming in the sea for two hours. He insisted that the huge amount of whiskey he drank before the ship sank warmed his body enough to withstand the cold water. —


4. Two young brothers survived on the ship, being without the care of loved ones.


The only children who survived the sinking of the Titanic without parents were Edmond and Michel Navratil, who went down in history in this regard. They were known as the "Titanic Orphans" and were two years apart in their ages. In order to take them to America, their father stole them from their mother, whom he separated from. When he put his children on the lifeboat, that was the last time he was seen. —


5. A first-class cabin on board the Titanic cost $4,350 (£875), as opposed to the average cost of a first-class bed on the ship, which was £30.


6. An optical illusion may have prevented the discovery of the iceberg in time.


Historian Tim Maltin argues that the superrefraction was likely caused by atmospheric conditions on the night the ship sank, which may have obscured the iceberg. This may help explain why the iceberg was not discovered until the ship was too close to it to avoid a collision. —


7. Milton Hershey was supposed to be on the Titanic.


Milton Hershey, the entrepreneur who created the famous Hershey's milk chocolate bar, sent a $300 payment to book a cabin on the Titanic. Hershey and his wife skipped the trip because work was more important than anything. —

Upon learning that the ship was sinking, American businessman Benjamin Guggenheim and his servant Victor Giglio dressed in their best evening attire. Guggenheim reportedly stated, "We are dressed in our best and ready to leave like gentlemen."


11. The first lifeboat was launched an hour after hitting the iceberg.


It might seem logical for a ship to immediately launch lifeboats when the hull is breached. However, it took the Titanic an entire hour before it launched its first lifeboat. —


12. During the construction of the Titanic, 8 people died and 28 serious accidents occurred, 218 minor accidents were also reported by Harland and Wolff.


13. Tens of thousands of dollars were paid for the final dinner menu from the Titanic.

14. While the Titanic may have had 64 lifeboats, it only had 20.


Many of the Titanic's lifeboats were not completely filled with the number of passengers they were designed to carry. —


15. 13 couples on board the Titanic went on a honeymoon trip. Lifeboats were made available primarily to newlyweds from among other people.


16. The Titanic sank in 2 hours and 40 minutes.

The New York Times ran a headline stating that the Titanic sank four hours after hitting the iceberg in its original report of the tragedy. The fact that the ship sank faster was not known to the general public.


17. The Titanic sank very quickly.


The ship split in two: the bow sank to the ocean floor at a speed of 35 miles (56.3 km) per hour, and the stern at a speed of 50 miles (80.4 km) per hour. —


18. An iceberg that collided with a ship could rise 100 feet (30.4 m) above the water.


It is estimated that the iceberg that the Titanic crashed into was between 50 (15.2 m) and 100 feet (30.4 m) above the water. The total length of the iceberg is believed to have been between 200 (60.9 m) and 400 (121.9 m) feet. —


19. It took more than three years to build the ship.

Beginning in 1909 and for three years, White Star Line's Titanic was built at the Harland & Wolff shipyard in Belfast, Ireland. —


20. When the ship sank, the temperature of the sea water was below zero.


The water temperature was only -2 degrees Celsius, according to measurements taken by Captain Stanley Lord from the Californian, which was nearby when the Titanic sank.


21. Less than a third of all people on board the ship survived.


Only 705 passengers and crew returned home. —


22. First class passengers had access to a heated swimming pool.

The anthem was sung to different tunes in the two countries, adding to the uncertainty. —


24. "Titanic" is under water at a depth of 3800 m


Almost 2.5 miles (4 km) below the surface of the ocean, about 370 miles (595 km) from the Canadian province of Newfoundland, lies the wreck of the Titanic. The ship split in two, leaving a 2,000-foot (600 m) long gap in the seabed separating the bow and stern. —


25. The Titanic cost over $7.5 million to build ($200 million adjusted for inflation).


In the early 20th century, the cost to build the huge ship was estimated at $7.5 million, or $183.4 million today. —


26. The hull of the boat received a 91 meter hole from hitting an iceberg.

32. It took 20 horses to transport the main anchor.


The weight of the ship's main anchor was over 30,000 pounds, or 16 tonntertons, England, to Dudley railway station, England. —


33. It took more than seven decades to search for the wreckage of the ship.


After the Titanic sank in 1912, its wreckage was not discovered until 73 years later, in 1985. Using a robotic submarine, the wreckage was located by Dr. Robert D. Ballard of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts and a team of American and French experts. —


34. Many documentaries and feature films have been made about the Titanic. The most notable of these are:

"Titanic" by Jean Negulesco (1953), "The Sinking of the Titanic" by Roy Baker (1958) and "Titanic" by James Cameron (1997). —


35. Six pre-collision iceberg warnings.


Captain Edward Smith apparently never received the most important iceberg warning due to the lack of the MSG prefix. The captain had to personally acknowledge the receipt of the message under this designation. The chief radio operator dismissed the message as unimportant because it lacked the MSG prefix. —


36. Edward John Smith was the captain of the Titanic and died when the ship sank on its maiden voyage.


37. Only three of the four chimneys of the Titanic worked.

The big ship had four chimneys (also known as funnels), but only three of them emitted smoke. The other was used only for ventilation, giving the ship a regal air. —


38. Specific bacteria slowly devour debris.


At some point, the rust-eating bacteria will completely consume whatever remains of the Titanic at the bottom of the ocean. Halomonas titanicae, a type of microbe that can attach itself to steel surfaces, creates the rust visible on the debris.


39. 6,000 artifacts were recovered from the crash site.


Many people are interested in artifacts from the Titanic era. A violin sold at auction in the UK in 2013 for $1.7 million was one of 6,000 artifacts discovered. In 2011, the Titanic project was sold for $336,000. —


40. John Jacob Astor IV was the richest man on board.


With a net worth of nearly $150,000,000 at the time, the heir to the Astor family fortune was by far the wealthiest person on board the ship. He died with the ship.


41. The first iceberg was noticed at 23:30 on April 14.

The iceberg was discovered by a sentinel who hastily sounded the alarm. To avoid colliding with him, the ship quickly turned at a high angle, but it was too late. —
