8 astonishing secrets taken to the grave by great people
People with great brain power possess an amazing ability to change the world we live in and shape history. Anyway, some famous geniuses never shared their incredible secrets with anyone and preferred to take them to the grave.
Almost a century later, his granddaughter, novelist Louise Patten, decided to reveal the family secret. According to her, Bruce Ismay, the chairman of the White Star Line, insisted on keeping sailing even after the fatal mistake of the ship's steersman. He was concerned about the status of the company. Under his influence, the officers didn't stop the ship to wait for help, and the liner continued moving even after the crash. Anyway, no one can verify this information today. Why did Lightoller keep silent? Revealing the truth would have resulted in business bankruptcy and lots of people could have lost their jobs. “He was simply caught between two differing codes of honor, and my grandmother and the rest of the family understood that,” said Lightoller's granddaughter in an interview.
