On June 18, 5 passengers boarded a small submarine to see the wreckage of the Titanic. Went close to the Titanic. But they were not lucky enough to see Titanic. Like the Titanic, they also sank in the deep sea.

An hour and 45 minutes after the start of the journey, the submarine lost contact with the companion ship ‘Polar Prince’ above. It is believed that it was then that the Titan submersible tragically exploded, killing all on board. The incident attracted the attention of people all over the world.
Engineers eventually recovered the remains of the Titan submersible, along with human remains.

The US Coast Guard reported this information. More debris from the wrecked Titan submersible has been recovered from the bottom of the Atlantic. Local time on Tuesday, Coast Guard officials said, ‘The extra part of the submarine was recovered from the seabed last week and taken to a port in the United States. Medical officials will analyze the human remains.

5 days after the incident, rescuers said they found the wreckage near the Titanic. Then some wreckage of Titan was also recovered and now they informed about recovery of remaining wreckage.

The submarine was sent to sea-tourism by US-based private company Oceangate. Before this, many people went to see the Titanic by riding this submarine. The wreck of the Titanic lies 3,800 meters (12,467 feet) below sea level in the North Atlantic Ocean.

It is believed that the Titan submarine exploded due to the overpressure of the water. On that day, Oceangate’s CEO Stockton Rush, pilot Paul-Henri Nargolet (77), British-Pakistani tycoon Shahzada Dawood (48) and his son Suleiman Dawood (19) and British tycoon Hamis Harding (58) went to see the Titanic on board the Titanic. .

After the incident, a US court said that Stockton Rush, the CEO of the operating company Oceangate, had neglected the safety of the submarine. After this incident, Oceangate suspended all their operations. Titan was made of carbon fiber. Carbon fiber is cheaper and much stronger than titanium or steel. But it is not very strong for deep sea diving with people.
