Search teams detected underwater sounds while scanning the North Atlantic for a tourist submersible that vanished with five people aboard during a deep-sea voyage to the century-old wreck of the Titanic, the U.S. coast guard said early Wednesday. 

 

The detection of the sounds by Canadian aircraft was reported by the coast guard as the clock ticked down to the last 24 hours of the craft's presumed oxygen supply.

The U.S. Navy said early Wednesday afternoon that a special deep-water salvage system capable of hoisting up to 60,000 pounds had reached St. John’s, Canada, and could be used to lift the Titan to the surface, though it may not be ready for another 24 hours. The Titan weighs 20,000 pounds

The frantic international search for the missing tourist submersible entered a more desperate phase Thursday as rescuers feared the oxygen supply on the vessel may be entering its final hours.

 

The search for Titan, which went missing on Sunday after embarking on a mission to survey the wreckage of the Titanic, has been focused on an area where Canadian aircraft detected "underwater noises" Tuesday and again on Wednesday.

 

But even as the search intensified with new ships joining the race against time — Coast Guard officials estimated the five passengers could run out of air just before 7:10 a.m. ET — the location of the missing vessel and the exact situation onboard remained a mystery.

The U.S. Coast Guard announced Thursday that the Canadian vessel Horizon Arctic deployed a remotely operated vehicle (ROV) "that has reached the sea floor and began its search" for the missing OceanGate Titan submarine.

It is the first time during the search that a vessel is combing the floor of the Atlantic Ocean for the missing vessel and its five passengers.

Previous search efforts have involved the use of aircraft and sonar.

"The French vessel L'Atalante is preparing their ROV to enter the water," the Coast Guard also said.

There were no updates in the search for the missing submersible Titan overnight into Thursday morning — a stark quietness as the 96-hour window for a successful search draws closer to the end.

If the submersible is still intact, searchers expect its oxygen supply will run out on Thursday morning. Despite best efforts, and a few hopeful moments, the search has yet to turn up any definitive results.

The best hope to drag out their oxygen supply, unfortunately, might be the frigid temperature of the water.

[...] David Lochridge was terminated in January 2018 after presenting a scathing quality control report on the vessel to OceanGate’s senior management, including founder and CEO Stockton Rush, who is on board the missing vessel. [...]

A deep-sea robot found a "debris field" while searching for a sub that went missing while carrying five people to the wreckage of the Titanic, the U.S. Coast Guard said Thursday. Experts were evaluating the discovery by the ROV, or remotely operated vehicle.

 

"A debris field was discovered within the search area by an ROV near the Titanic," officials said.

 

Coast Guard officials were expected to discuss the findings during a news conference Thursday afternoon.

 

In addition to the underwater robots, search planes and ships have been deployed to the northern Atlantic Ocean in the hopes of finding the lost 21-foot sub Titan.

 

The Coast Guard said Thursday morning one of the robots started searching for sub on the sea floor. Another robot was also added to the search effort Thursday.

In the 60s, we sent man to the moon and back, on the first try.

I hope this will inspire exploring the deep. We only have about 20% of the seafloor mapped(which is absolutely pathetic). Why do we choose to go to space instead? Because it’s a lot easier than going to those depths. They prefer to keep the people looking the other way.

I’m not sure we need a map of the sea floor. I’m not sure we need to colonize Mars any time soon either. Why not start with the moon?

I believe the Atlantians fled to Mars when they knew their city was doomed.

I know Musk says we need to colonize Mars in case anything happens to the earth.

But why not just build a city maybe at the North Pole that’s secure from radiation and can survive a meteor strike and the hundreds or thousands of years of ill effects?

How do you know if you don’t have a map?

If we don’t know what’s down there, it might be something really creepy or beneficial. but yes the moon should be easier.



I’m always interested in the inner earth theory, but that’s another topic. Most likely, the entrances are in areas that are cool(cold)




What’s down there?

Well, man has not set foot on every square km. of the north, but we can likely interpolate what’s there.

If you watch Ancient Aliens, on the History Channel you know what’s there.

Hopefully the debris field is just from the crew opening the hatch to get rid of some garbage.

They can’t unbolt the hatch from the inside. So likely game over.

Really? That sounds like a design failure/safety issue. Y'ow.
