After the implosion of the Titan, underwater robots will continue to search the bottom of the sea for clues about what happened
The rescue forces that participated in the search for the Titan will continue their work at the bottom of the ocean, in an attempt to find new clues about what happened.
rear admiral John Mauger, of the US Coast Guard First District, said efforts will continue, but the possibility of finding or recovering the wreckage is unknown.
After confirming the implosion of the submarine, the authorities affirmed that a term has not been set to suspend the search.
So far search teams have located the rear cone of the submersible and one end of its pressure hull in a large debris field a few meters from the bow of the Titanic.
Bobby Chacon, retired FBI special agent, stood out during an interview with the chain CNN that a debris field like the one rescuers discovered could have been created by a near-simultaneous implosion and explosion of the submersible.
OceanGate co-founder rejected criticism of the company’s security
the entrepreneur William Sohnleinco-founder of Ocean Gate, the company that operated the trips to the remains of the titanic rejected this Friday company safety reviews considering that these people do not have “all the information” to be able to give an opinion.
Speaking to British broadcaster BBC Radio 4Söhnlein, an American of Argentine origin, who left the company ten years ago although still owns a minority stake in it, said that those who comment on matters related to the safety conditions of the submersible Titan are not “fully informed”.
“People keep equating certification with safety and ignore the 14 years of development of the Titan submersible.“, lament.
According to him, “any expert who weighs this, including (director James) Cameron, will also concede that they were not there when the sub was designed, during the engineering process of the sub, during the construction of the sub, and certainly not when the rigorous test program to which the submersible was subjected was carried out.”
Söhnlein considered that what happened had supposed “a tragic loss for the ocean exploration community” although he pointed out that anyone who works in the ocean “knows the risk of operating under such pressure and knows that at a certain moment they are at risk of suffering a implosion of this type.
