The Titanic will sail again, at least a replica version. An Australian businessman plans to start building the Titanic II in April. Clive Palmer, a billionaire who owns a shipping company, says the luxury liner will be made in China. Its maiden voyage is scheduled for 2016 from the United Kingdom to New York. Palmer says he wants to recreate The Titanic because of what it represented. The Titanic II will have room for more than 2,000 passengers. It’s unclear how they will be selected but one news agency says bidding has already started at one million dollars.
