Australian rich person Clive Palmer is planning to construct a near-exact replica of the Titanic, and sail it from England to North America in late 2016. He says Titanic II will be every bit as luxurious as the original Titanic, and will have state-of-the-art 21st-century technology and the latest navigation and safety systems. The Titanic II will consist of 840 rooms across nine decks, and will feature "an enlarged rudder and bow thrusters for improved maneuverability." Asked if he is concerned the sequel will suffer the same fate as the original, Palmer responded, "It is going to be designed so it won't sink," but "of course it will sink if you put a hole in it."
