Titanic Submersible: On Thursday, the United States Coast Guard announced that it has discovered the wreckage of the submersible close to the remnants of the Titanic, which are about 3,800 metres (12,400 ft) below the surface of the water.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the United States Navy was able to detect what is believed to be the implosion of the Titanic submersible using underwater sound monitoring equipment not long after the submersible went missing in the Atlantic Ocean while travelling to the Titanic catastrophe. An unnamed senior commander from the United States Navy was cited in the newspaper as saying that a top-secret acoustic monitoring system that is used to discover submarines detected the implosion shortly after it vanished on Sunday.
“The Titanic submarine was working in the general region when contacts were lost, and the United States Navy undertook an investigation of acoustic data and detected an irregularity that was “consistent with an implosion or explosion,” the official told the Journal.
On Thursday, the United States Coast Guard made the announcement that it has located the wreckage of a submersible in close proximity to the remains of the Titanic, which are located approximately 3,800 metres (12,400 feet) below the surface of the water.
An official told reporters that following an analysis, it was concluded that the debris located on the bottom was compatible with the implosion of the sub’s pressure chamber. This conclusion put a stop to a multinational search and rescue campaign that had been going on for four days.According to OceanGate Expeditions, which managed the vessel, all five persons who were on board the submersible are thought to have perished in the accident.
On Sunday, the submarine disappeared just a few hours into its mission to observe the wreckage of the R.M.S. Titanic, which is situated approximately 12,500 feet below the surface of the water. It was predicted that there would be enough oxygen on board for its crew of five for a total of 96 hours.
The search for the Titan submarine continued, while at the same time, rumours began to circulate on social media regarding potential safety issues with the vessel. An inspection report from 2018 indicates that a former employee of OceanGate expressed significant concerns regarding the vessel. In the case that he filed against the company, he claimed that the reason he was fired was because of his critiques, which were unjustified.
