Tragic Discovery: Titanic SUB Wreckage FOUND On Ocean Floor With NO SURVIVORS! (Details Inside)

When the remains of a submersible was found on the ocean floor with no survivors, it was a sad event. A robotic deep-sea robot sent out from a Canadian ship made the find. The remains of the submarine were found about 1,600 feet (488 metres) from the bow of the 100-year-old Titanic wreck. They were about 2.5 miles (4 km) below the surface. The US Coast Guard's Rear Admiral John Mauger told the press about this at a press meeting.

Titan is the name of the submarine, which was made from titanium and carbon fibre. It was 22 feet long, 9.2 feet wide, and 8.3 feet tall. It weighed about 21,000 pounds. The ship had enough "life support" for 96 hours for a crew of five people. A Coast Guard source said that the five people on board the submersible died in what has been called a "catastrophic" event.

OceanGate Expeditions, the company that made the submersible, sent their condolences and talked about the crew members' adventurous spirit and commitment to ocean research. They felt bad for the families who were hurt by this terrible event.

The wreckage of the submersible was found by relief teams from many different countries working together in an international search operation. The search took several days, and planes and ships went over thousands of square miles of open sea. On Sunday morning, about an hour and 45 minutes into what should have been a two-hour descent, the Titan lost touch.

The crew members on board the ill-fated submersible included Hamish Harding, a British billionaire and explorer; Shahzada Dawood, a Pakistani-born business magnate, along with his 19-year-old son Suleman, both British citizens; Paul-Henri Nargeolet, a French oceanographer and Titanic expert who had visited the wreck multiple times; and Stockton Rush, the American founder and CEO of OceanGate, who was piloting the submersible.

There was a glimmer of hope when radar buoys dropped from a Canadian plane heard noises under the water on Tuesday and Wednesday. At first, people thought that the sounds could be the crew tapping on the hull to try to speak. But more research showed that the results were not clear, suggesting that the noises might not have come from the Titan at all.

Even if the submarine had survived the accident, it was thought that its air supply would only last 96 hours from Sunday, when it went into the water. This means that the people inside would have probably run out of oxygen by Thursday morning.

The Titanic is about 900 miles (1,450 km) east of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, and about 400 miles (640 km) south of St. John's, Newfoundland. It is famous for its size and sinking on its first trip in 1912 after hitting an iceberg.

According to their website, they had been leading trips to the Titanic wreck since 2021. People could join for a cost of $250,000 per person.

Concerns about the Titan's safety were first brought up in 2018 at a meeting of experts in the submersible business. Also, Ocean Gate's former head of marine operations brought a lawsuit about the safety of the submersible, which was settled later that same year.

The search for the lost submersible covered more than 10,000 square miles of ocean, which is about the same size as the state of Massachusetts in the United States. Two deep-sea unmanned vehicles were sent out to explore the depths of the ocean to help with the mission.

At least in part, the fascinating legacy of the Titanic explains why people all over the world were interested in the lost submersible and why there was such a big search for it. The Titanic was a British ocean liner that was said to be "unsinkable." Its story has been the subject of many works of nonfiction and fiction over the past 100 years, including James Cameron's hugely famous film from 1998, which sparked new interest in the event.
