OceanGate Expeditions has been exploring the wreck with new technology – and seeing worsening decay

Pictures from new expeditions to the タイタニック show increasing deterioration of the famed shipwreck, による ワシントン-based OceanGate Expeditions, which is making its first journeys with its Titan submersible to the site.

“These changes are distinct and notable, including the missing Gorgonian Hydroid from the rail of the bow, OceanGate said this week after Titan made its latest dive, according to GeekWire.

The Titan submersible is made of carbon fibre and titanium and is the “world’s only privately owned submersible capable of taking five crewmembers into the deep ocean, and is the result of a decade of development,” the press release stated.

“We had to overcome tremendous engineering, operational, 仕事, and finally Covid-19 challenges to get here, and I am so proud of this team and grateful for the support of our many partners,” Stockton Rush, OceanGate’s chief executive and founder, said last month.

He was the pilot of the debut dive, while Scott Griffith served as co-pilot and former French naval commander PH Nargeolet, who has visited the Titanic more than 30 タイムズ, served as a mission specialist.

“This recent dive in Titan to the Titanic wreck is one of the most memorable dives I have ever done,” Mr Nargeolet said last month. “Being able to participate in the deployment and operation of such a groundbreaking sub and launch system reminded me of the challenges that my team overcame and the determination that they exhibited in the development of the Nautile over 35 数年前。"

OceanGate made its final Titan dive of the summer on Saturday but plans to continue making expeditions and using its state-of-the-art technology to document the deteriorating state of the wreck on a yearly basis to gather a more comprehensive understanding of how it is faring.

The Titanic hit an iceberg in the Atlantic Ocean, 約 400 miles off Newfoundland, カナダ, on its maiden voyage from the UK to New York, と 2,200 souls aboard. 周りだけ 700 people survived after the vessel was plunged into freezing waters of 28 華氏度 (-2.2 degrees Celsius.)
