Simulation of a Terrifying Night - Scientists in Hamburg recently simulated the sinking of the Estonia, the 1994 Baltic Sea ferry disaster that killed 852 people. They discovered that the vessel was traveling much too fast in stormy seas and that the crew's attempts to save the ship by turning it actually caused it to capsize.
In the picture is Janno Aser, one of the Estonia survivors, sitting on the top of the capsized Estonia ferry. Not long after this, the whole ship sank into the Baltic Sea. Picture taken by another survivor, Mikael Õun, September 28, 1994
