The more hours pass, the more they become Hopes are low To be able to find the submarine TitanWhich sunday afternoon disappeared with Five people on boardwhile diving in 3800 to visit the Titanic wreck.
Searches for the sunken Titan near the wreck of the Titanic
The only hope is that The shower surface may have resurfaced And her Communication systems failure. If instead it sank to a depth of about 4 km, the recovery operations would be very complicated.
A new noise was heard, in the past few hours, in the search area for the missing submarine in the Atlantic Ocean. Researchers still don’t know where they came from, but the search for OceanGate’s Titan submersible has expanded, and now includes an area twice the size of the US state of Connecticut.
They are currently believed to be crew Less than 20 hours of oxygen remaining. Former US Navy nuclear submarine commander David Marquet warned that the noises detected in the past few hours may not have come from the Titan submarine. “I don’t think the noise is their voices,” he said, “it could just be natural sounds. We hear noises and more ships come into the area, and then we hear more noises, and I don’t think it’s a coincidence.” BBC.

|7:24||Expert: Titan is destined to reappear||The submersible Titan that vanished on its way to the wreck of the Titanic was designed to return to the surface 24 hours later, according to Aaron Newman, an OceanGate investor who visited the site on the ship in 2021. CNN reports:
Newman said Titan is held underwater by ballast — heavy weights that help stabilize the ship — designed to release automatically after 24 hours to send the submarine to the surface.
|Crashes, uncertainties and technical problems in the past||As the hours pass, many episodes and circumstances emerge in which the safety of Titan’s diving has been called into question. CNN also publishes a list of them: Industry leaders raised a number of safety concerns about the Titan submarine before its disappearance. Titan’s operator, OceanGate Expeditions, has also faced a series of mechanical problems and severe weather conditions that have forced trip cancellations or delays in recent years, according to court documents.|
|7:54||Huge rescue||Experts argue that one of the largest search and rescue operations in recent years is underway in the Atlantic region where all traces of Titan have been lost and repeat that even if the submarine is found it would be impossible to supply oxygen and it would be very complicated to be able to bring it back to the surface assuming the necessary means For operations arrive in time to the area.|
|8:50||Five core research vessels||
As CNN reports, there are 5 base vessels used in the search:
CCGS John Cabot: The 207-foot Canadian Coast Guard Scientific Fishing Vessel carries “Advanced Deep Sonar,” according to the Canadian Coast Guard. Sonar uses echoes of sound waves to find objects or to map ocean features.
Motor Vessel Horizon Arctic: The 307-foot Canadian vessel features a remote-operated vehicle (ROV) hangar with a launch and recovery system. Sean Lett, co-founder and chief owner of Horizon Maritime Services, said the ship was loaded with an ROV provided by the US military and is expected to arrive at the Titanic wreck site Thursday.
Research Vessel L’Atalante: The 279-foot multi-purpose French research vessel carries the Vector 6000, an ROV that can dive to nearly 20,000 feet. (The wreck of the Titanic is nearly 13,000 feet.) The Victor 6000 can perform tasks including video and acoustic searches and inspections, and has robotic arms capable of manipulating objects, according to the ship’s operator, the French Ocean Fleet.
HMCS Glace Bay: A Canadian Navy coastal defense ship measuring 181 feet, carrying medical personnel and a decompression chamber, which would be needed by any survivors brought back to the surface from the depths of the Titanic.
Magellan ROV: A remotely operated vehicle from the deep-sea mapping company Magellan, which operates submarines that can reach over 19,000 feet. Based in Guernsey in the British Isles, Magellan is famous for photographs of the Titanic.
