    I think ๐Ÿค” this is going to go on for a long time with the lawyers etc, unfortunately, it won't return the lives of those 5 people to their respective families

    Sadly, as more reports and information is unveiled, it is becoming clear that this incident was not matter of if it would happen, but rather when it would happen. A report in the New York Time quotes a former passenger, an engineer, who experienced cracking of the pressure hull in 2019. Reportedly a new hull was built. To the same specs? I expect tat the lawsuits will uncover even more information. Someone certainly appears to have been playing Russian Roulette with peoples lives. As the saying goes, Follow the money.๐Ÿค•

    Yes, SOSUS detected the "anomoly" when it happened...
    Published (updated) this morning in the NYTimes...


    By Eric Schmitt
    Published June 22, 2023
    Updated June 23, 2023, 6:29 a.m. ET
    The U.S. Navy, using data from a secret network of underwater sensors designed to track hostile submarines, detected โ€œan anomaly consistent with an implosion or explosionโ€ in the vicinity of the Titan submersible at the time communications with the vessel were lost on Sunday, two senior Navy officials said on Thursday.

    But with no other indications of a catastrophe, one of the officials said, the search was continued.

    The data from the sensors was combined with information from airborne Navy P-8 surveillance planes and sonar buoys on the surface to triangulate the approximate location of the Titan, one of the officials said. The analysis of undersea acoustic data and information about the location of the noise were then passed on to the Coast Guard official in charge of the search, Rear Adm. John Mauger.

    Because there was no visual or other conclusive evidence of a catastrophic failure, one of the officials said, it would have been โ€œirresponsibleโ€ to immediately assume the five passengers were dead, and the search was ordered to continue even though the outlook appeared grim. Both of the Navy officials spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss operational details.

    It was not immediately clear how widely the Navyโ€™s acoustical analysis was disseminated among the search team, nor why the Navy had not made it public earlier. The Navyโ€™s acoustic analysis from the secret sensor network was first reported by The Wall Street Journal.

    Evening Gents.
    When I started this thread two days ago we feared the worst but hoped for the best.
    Sadly as expected it has now been confirmed all have perished after a catastrophic implosion.
    Titanic has claimed more lives and should be left in peace in my mind.
    Regards Bill
    Never give up.It will come right in the end.

    I agree Doug. Eventually SOSUS will reveal a hull breach as it has with other similar events..i.e the USS Scorpion.
    Strength to the families.

    It rather looks as if our worst fears have come true๐Ÿค”
    Titans oxygen supply is due to expire about now, 14:00 CET.

    Given all the adverse comments on the build and safety of Titan, from acknowledged submersible experts around the world and previous passengers, I would strongly suspect that catastrophic hull / window failure will turn out to be the cause.
    A quick death at least. Little comfort for the bereaved relatives.
    Mr Rush may have paid the ultimate price for his alleged cost cutting, and INNOVATIVE engineering.
    Seems we may have to wait for that episode of Secrets of the Oceans after allโ˜น๏ธ
