One of Australia's richest men, Clive Palmer, has unveiled plans for a 21st century version of the Titanic to be built in China, with its first voyage from England to New York set for 2016.
Palmer, a self-made mining billionaire, said he has commissioned state-owned Chinese company CSC Jinling Shipyard to construct Titanic II with exactly the same dimensions as its predecessor.
"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," Palmer said in a statement, released on Monday.
"Titanic II will sail in the northern hemisphere and her maiden voyage from England to North America is scheduled for late 2016.
"We have invited the Chinese navy to escort Titanic II on its maiden voyage to New York."

Either this is freaky satire or it is just plain freaky, but the sad thing about it is it is really shows who is feeling cocky and who is in the dumps.
While NASA retires the shuttle, the Chinese are marching into space, North Korea is launching missiles, and I have heard that India is coming up on it’s first manned mission.
But hey, gotta pay those food-stamps!
I thought for sure this was something from John Semmens!
but of course it will have state-of-the-art 21st century technology and the latest navigation and safety systems
Did they make similar boasts about the original titanic?
Its all a bit embarrassing Im fed up with people asking me if I hit an iceberg.
Perhaps we can load all the RINO and DemocRAT Congressmen and Senators on it and have a Lusitania II.
The Titanic II has already been built. Several years ago, I saw a rowboat with that name in Dana Point Harbor, Calif.
Or the Costa Concordia II.
Especially with this cast of characters: he has commissioned state-owned Chinese company CSC Jinling Shipyard to construct Titanic II
A ship built by the lowest bidder in a country known to
use substandard material whenever possible.....yep.
I can see the handwriting on the wall for this one already.
Glub blub blub.
