The United States Coast Guard declares crew of submersible Titan dead

The crew of the submersible Titan, which was part of an expedition to discover the remains of the Titanic, has been declared dead by the United States Coast Guard. Over the weekend, the small ship was reported missing off the southeast coast of Canada, prompting a rescue operation launched by both the United States and Canadian Coast Guard.

Unfortunately, on June 22, the crew members, including Hamish Harding, Shahzada Dawood, Suleman (their son), Stockton Rush, and Paul-Henri Nargeolet, were declared dead. The authorities confirmed their deaths after locating remains of the Titanic submersible near the Titanic. It is assumed that a catastrophic implosion occurred, resulting in the death of everyone aboard the ship.

Pressure in the wreck of the Titanic and distance from the bow of the remains of the Titan

For those curious about the pressure at the wreck of the Titanic and the exact location of the remains of the Titan, here are some details. According to the Aquae Foundation, the Titanic is located at a depth of 4,000 meters, which means the pressure is approximately 400 atmospheres, or 400 times higher than the pressure at sea level.

As for the remains of the Titanic submersible, they were discovered approximately 500 meters from the bow of the Titanic. The discovery was made at around 8:55 am on June 22. While experts initially believed that the Titan was designed to withstand the same pressures found in the wreck of the Titanic, concerns had been expressed in the past regarding the design of the submersible.
