Tempting fate? Aussie billionaire Clive Palmer has revealed he plans to recreate the fateful and tragic 'unsinkable' cruise liner that sank 100 years ago.
The mining boss, who owns the massive west coast operation Mineralology, and former owner of Gold Coast United FC, has announced that he has commissioned a Chinese firm to recreate the sunken liner with the same specifications and dimensions as the original.
The ship is scheduled to sail from England to New York in 2016 "It will be every bit as luxurious as the original Titanic but of course it will have state-of-the-art 21st century technology and the latest navigation and safety systems," said Palmer in a statement to the press.
"It is going to be designed so it won't sink...but, of course, if you are superstitious like you are, you never know what could happen." said Palmer in response to journalists who questioned if recreating a ship which sank was a wise move.
