A tourist submarine that takes groups to view the wreckage site of the Titanic has gone missing in the Atlantic Ocean. The submarine, which is operated by OceanGate Expeditions, was last in contact with its base on Sunday morning. It is believed to be carrying three people, including a British tourist.
The submarine has two-thirds of its oxygen capacity remaining, which means it could have up to 96 hours of survival time. However, the search for the submarine is being hampered by bad weather.
A remotely operated vehicle (ROV) is being deployed to the search area, but it is not clear when it will arrive. The ROV is capable of reaching a depth of 20,000 feet, which is the depth at which the Titanic wreckage is located.
The search for the submarine is being led by the U.S. Coast Guard and the Canadian Coast Guard. They are working with OceanGate Expeditions to try to locate the submarine and its passengers.
As of the time of this writing, the submarine has not been found. The search is ongoing.
Here are some additional details from the article:
- The submarine is called the Cyclops Expedition.
- It is a two-person submersible that can carry a third passenger.
- The submarine was on a dive to view the Titanic wreckage when it went missing.
- The weather in the search area is currently bad, with winds gusting up to 30 knots.
- The ROV that is being deployed to the search area is called the CURV 21.
- The CURV 21 is a remotely operated vehicle that is capable of reaching depths of up to 20,000 feet.
