    OceanGate Expeditions, the company behind the Titan submersible disaster, was forgiven of its $450,000 Paycheck Protection Program loan, according to the ProPublica PPP Loan Database. OceanGate builds submersibles for tourism and research, but its inherently risky business model raises questions, and led to the tragic deaths of five people in the ocean in June. Its liability waiver for sub tourism mentioned the possibility of death three times on the first page alone. Now, some are accusing the company of cutting corners. James Cameron, the renowned Titanic explorer and director of the 1997 movie, said, "I was very suspect of the...

    Screenshots of what purports to be the Titan submersible’s final communications before its tragic destruction have gone viral online. The unconfirmed script alleges to reveal the final words shared between someone on board the sub – presumably OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush – and the team on board its mothership the Polar Prince. The document has raised a number of concerns, most notably by suggesting that passengers were aware of issues with the vessel some 18 minutes before its devastating implosion.

    Onlookers caught glimpses of the Titan submersible wreckage as its crews brought its remains ashore. These provide clues to what may have happened while a formal investigation is underway. Though it's difficult to know for sure, an expert said the carbon-fiber hull likely failed first. Photos of the Titan submersible wreckage support the theory that the vessel's carbon-fiber hull may have led to its catastrophic implosion, an expert told Insider. The US Coast Guard brought debris from the Titan submersible ashore this week, giving onlookers a brief, imperfect glimpse as it was taken away for analysis. ... Though it is...

    Debris from the Titan submersible that imploded on the bottom of the Atlantic as it tried to reach the wreckage of the Titanic has been hauled ashore. The huge chunks of metal were unloaded from the Horizon Arctic ship at the Canadian Coast Guard pier in St John's, Newfoundland, Canada, this morning. They were quickly covered in large tarpaulins before being lifted by cranes on to trucks that took them away for assessment. It comes exactly ten days after the doomed Titan submersible vanished during a tourist trip run by OceanGate Expeditions. Last Thursday it was revealed that the sub...

    The search and rescue operation for the lost OceanGate submersible that took five men down to visit the Titanic wreck remains ongoing, but life support systems are running out. The seacraft was reported missing Sunday. The Titan is the only five-man submarine in the world that can make the 12,500-foot journey to the wreck. It’s a rich man’s game since the cost to participate in this vacation expedition is prohibitive to most people. The price is $250,000 per head. There are concerns that the Titan craft has become stuck in the wreckage. There’s no way to contact the passengers or...

    Jewish billionaire Jay Bloom says he and his son Sean were offered two seats on the ill-fated Titan submersible but declined to join over safety concerns and scheduling issues. The American real estate developer, who is based in Las Vegas, said Pakistani businessman Shahzada Dawood and his son Suleman ended up taking their available seats. Dawood and his son were among the five people who died instantly when the submersible imploded on a mission to explore the wreck of the Titanic in the North Atlantic. “Every time I see a picture of that Pakistani businessman and his 19-year-old son, I...

    An old clip from the Discovery Channel show “MythBusters” demonstrating how a deep-sea explorer could implode in a depressurized diving suit has gone viral after the Titanic sub disaster. The 2009 clip has racked up more than three-quarters of a million views after being posted Thursday, when it was discovered that the five passengers had died aboard a Titanic wreckage-bound submersible that imploded. In the show’s science experiment, a human-shaped mannequin was recreated from pig parts including bones, muscle, fat, skin and guts. It was then sunk about 300 feet underwater — where pressure is roughly nine times greater than...

    The OceanGate submersible disaster is over. The Titan seacraft that supposedly could submerge to depths to view the Titanic wreck imploded, killing all five members onboard. It disappeared on Sunday, June 18, leading to a days-long search by US Coast Guard and Canadian military units to find the craft. On June 20, there was some hope, as noises were heard in the vicinity where the submersible disappeared. It was false hope; the noises were natural in origin. On June 22, it was concluded that there were no survivors when a debris field 1,600 feet from the wreck's bow was discovered,...
  • Carbon fiber, one of the Titan submersible's experimental materials, comes under scrutiny

    The one-of-a-kind Titan submersible that imploded on its descent to the site of the Titanic this week, killing all five passengers, was made with experimental materials, including carbon fiber, which experts say has not been pressure-tested over time in such extreme depths. Since the fatal dive, the innovation behind the Titan and OceanGate Expeditions — the company that owned and operated the vessel for paid tours to the Titanic — has come under increased and intense scrutiny. Days after the Titan was reported missing, sparking a frantic search, the U.S. Coast Guard said Thursday that the 22-foot craft imploded, though...

    Rather long video by Scott Manley, who normally blogs about things space related. This is a "rant," in which he streams his thoughts and responds to questions and comments from viewers. One interesting thing he did say that I made note of, concerning the energy released when the Titan submarine imploded. If we assume that it made it to a depth of 8000 feet, we can estimate the amount of energy that was focused on its occupants by just turning the situation around (in a sense) and calculating the amount of energy needed to clear one cubic meter of volume...

    Officials investigating the doomed Titanic submersible will examine voice recordings and other data from its mothership to try to determine what happened and whether any criminality occurred, according to reports. Investigators with the Transportation Safety Board of Canada visited the Polar Prince, the OceanGate Titan sub’s lead ship, Saturday “to collect information from the vessel’s voyage data recorder and other vessel systems that contain useful information,” TSB Chairwoman Kathy Fox told CNN. Fox said agency wants to “find out what happened and why and to find out what needs to change to reduce the chance or the risk of such...

    The aunt of Suleman Dawood, the youngest passenger aboard the Titanic-bound submarine that officials believe imploded on Sunday, said that he decided to join the voyage because he hoped to bond with his father over the trip. Azmeh Dawood, the aunt of 19-year-old Suleman, told NBC News that her nephew had been “terrified” about the trip but decided to join her brother, Shahzada Dawood, on the expedition to spend time with him over the Father’s Day weekend. “I am thinking of Suleman, who is 19, in there, just perhaps gasping for breath … It’s been crippling, to be honest,” Azmeh...

    Warnings over the safety of OceanGate's Titan submersible were repeatedly dismissed by the CEO of the company, email exchanges with a leading deep sea exploration specialist show. In messages seen by the BBC, Rob McCallum told OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush that he was potentially putting his clients at risk and urged him to stop using the sub until it had been classified by an independent body. Mr Rush responded that he was "tired of industry players who try to use a safety argument to stop innovation".

    An expert detailed Thursday what the five victims killed in the Titan submersible likely faced in the “catastrophic implosion” near the Titanic ship. The United States Coast Guard announced on Thursday that the five passengers inside the submersible were “lost” in a “catastrophic implosion” just hours after they found debris near the wrecked Titanic ship. “The reality is, at that depth and at those pressures, this is the natural outcome … this is definitely the way to go,” G. Michael Harris, a Titanic expedition leader, said on Fox News. “So, two nanoseconds for that vehicle to implode and it would...

    A U.S. Navy acoustic system detected an "anomaly" on Sunday that was likely the fatal implosion of a private submersible vehicle carrying five people to tour the wreckage of the Titanic, according to a senior military official. Coast Guard officials said during a news conference Thursday that they've notified the families of the crew of the Titan, which had been missing for days, bringing a tragic end to a saga that included an urgent around-the-clock search and a worldwide vigil for the missing vessel. Despite an international search and rescue effort, the Associated Press is now reporting that the Navy...

    They found a tragedy. They dragged it out as long as possible to keep people from focusing on their scandals. The Biden Crime Family and their regime are pure evil. Much of the world has been glued to their news sources for information about the submersible that went missing Sunday. It was confirmed Thursday that the tour vehicle that took the wealthy to see the sunken RMS Titanic imploded after debris was found. Did Joe Biden know the submersible had been lost hours after the tragedy? Did his regime withhold the information to cover up for various bombshells pertaining to...

    OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush, one of five passengers killed on a fatal mission to the Titanic wreckage this week, once admitted on camera to "breaking some rules" to build the tourist submersible. In comments to Mexican travel vlogger Alan Estrada in 2021, Rush evoked General MacArthur saying, "You’re remembered for the rules you break." "I’ve broken some rules to make this. I think I’ve broken them with logic and good engineering behind me," Rush said. He conceded that deep-sea submersibles "as a rule" should not be made with carbon fiber and titanium, but he did anyway.
