Titan submersible mishap: – An adventure endeavor turned into a disaster

An adventure endeavour turned into a disaster as the submersible went missing, less than two hours after starting its trip, eerily refreshing memories and reports of the sinking of “Titanic” ship which Titan aimed to explore.

British billionaire businessman Hamish Harding, British father and son Shahzada and Suleman Dawood who had roots in Pakistan as one of its richest families, OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush and former French navy diver Paul-Henry Nargeolet were the five persons who died as crew of the Titan submersible. As per a report in the BBC, Rear Adm Mauger of the Coast Guard confirmed that all five people aboard Titan were killed following what was probably a “catastrophic implosion”, based on patterns of debris discovered.

The 22 foot and 23000 pound submersible was made of lightweight carbon fiber, spun into a rigid tube for the vessel’s body. With a nine feet wide and 8 feet tall structure, Titan left little room for its crew. Passengers were cramped in on a subfloor inside the carbon-fiber tube. With only one toilet and no seats, passengers had to sit cross legged on the floor. There were no windows except the porthole through which passengers could view the Titanic.
