Sunken Titanic Wreckage Missing: People on Board

Sunken Titanic Wreckage Missing: People on Board

It was not clear at first if the tourists were on board. According to the BBC, the submarines can accommodate up to five people: a captain, a maximum of three tourists and an expert.

According to the US Coast Guard, it must have taken at least 70 hours to rescue the five missing people on the submarine near the wreck of the Titanic. Since the oxygen in the capsule is sufficient for 96 hours, depending on the operator, “we assume that between 70 and 96 hours are available currently,” Commander John Mauger said Monday afternoon (local time) in Boston. According to earlier reports, the boat has been missing for more than 24 hours.

For now, it’s about finding the submarine on the surface of the water or in the depths of the ocean, Mauger said. Several aircraft and ships will be used for this as well as buoys with infrasound on board, which can record sounds at a depth of about 4,000 meters. Only when the exact location of the boat is clear can a possible rescue be addressed.

Accordingly, the company recently announced an expedition is on the way. Accordingly, the tours last eight days and cost 250 thousand US dollars (229 thousand euros) per person. The company is promoting the carbon fiber submersible ride as an opportunity to “break outside the ordinary and discover something truly extraordinary,” according to the BBC.

The Titanic sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York in 1912, killing more than 1,500 people. The remains of the famous luxury liner were discovered in 1985 at a depth of about 3,800 metres. Only recently, with the help of high-resolution 3D images, have scientists provided the most accurate representation of the wreck yet.
