Submarine update:

Since Titanic was sunk in April of 1912, it was recorded that 1500+ passengers died in the crash. The ships captains log stated that 2,200 people were aboard the ship. Many explorers , have sought after the history and logic of the crash for over a century. At the time, it was one of the largest and most luxurious ships in the world. It was also considered unsinkable, due to a series of compartment doors that could be closed if the bow was breached. However, four days into its maiden voyage in 1912, the Titanic struck a large iceberg, and little did they know, it would sink 4 hours later in the morning hours of April 15th, 1912.

So in 2023, a submarine chose to look for the Titanic’s remains located at 41°43.5’N 49°56.8.W., 370 miles southeast of Newfoundland, Canada.

The 22-foot submersible lost contact with its support ship Sunday about an hour and 45 minutes into its dive. On board are a British adventurer, two members of a Pakistani business family, a Titanic expert and the CEO of OceanGate, from Washington State.

What were they actually in search of on The Titanic? Why did they board the Oceangate Submarine? Was it worth the risk of dying? Questions that will never be answered.
