fun facts film-titanic-stars-in-the-sky-Neil-deGrasse-Tyson-and-James-Cameron

When Rose DeWitt is floating on the wood, she looks towards the sky where she appreciates a group of stars forming the necklace or medallion of the Heart of the Sea. Nevertheless, when the astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson saw this scene, he communicated with the director James Cameron and told him that the configuration of the stars in the night sky was wrong, and gave him the data of how the sky really looked in the night when the Titanic sank. James Cameron did not do much case, since it was obvious that this scene of the stars forming the medallion was the result of the imagination of Rose DeWitt who was on the verge of death, but the astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson insisted in this fact and kept telling director James Cameron about it, so in the 3D Re-edition of the film in 2012, was the only thing that was edited and put what was really in the sky, according to astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Bruce Ismay was coming down to his personal hell, because if it were not for his insistence on putting the Titanic in gear, the ship would not have hit the iceberg, so he came to see pitifully as it slowly sinks.
