17 of 25: People stand behind wreaths prepared for a ceremony in the memory of the Titanic victims as the MS Balmoral Titanic memorial cruise ship approaches the wreck site of the Titanic in the Atlantic Ocean, Saturday, April 14, 2012. A century after the great ship went down with the loss of 1,500 lives, events around the globe are marking a tragedy that retains a titanic grip on the world's imagination _ an icon of Edwardian luxury that became, in a few dark hours 100 years ago, an enduring emblem of tragedy.
