Author Wade Sisson discusses the Titanic’s sister ship, the R.M.S. Olympic, which steamed 300 miles in a desperate rescue mission to pick up survivors of the now legendary disaster. In his book Racing Through the Night, Sisson looks at the entwined fates of these two “unsinkable” vessels.

A resident of Overbrook, Kansas, Sisson fell in love with the Titanic’s story when he was in the sixth grade. He joined the Titanic Historical Society just a few months before the wreckage of the ship was discovered in 1985.
