Billionaire and deep-sea explorer Larry Connor has announced his plans for an expedition to the crash site of the legendary Titanic. He plans to make it on a submersible.

This trip will take place less than a year after the failed expedition of the OceanGate submarine, which exploded during a dive. NV writes about it.

Connor approached Patrick Leahy, CEO of Triton Submarines, with a proposal to create a submarine that could safely reach the Titanic's wreckage. They intend to carry out scientific research on the wreckage of the ship, which lies at a depth of 3,810 meters off the coast of Newfoundland.

In addition, Connor and Lahey seek to refute the negative attitude towards private deep-sea vehicles , which arose after the tragedy with the OceanGate submarine “Titan”. Then all five members of the crew died, which caused a wide resonance in social networks and criticism about the safety of the submarine.

The Triton Submarines mission promises to use completely different new technologies and safety methods. It is planned to use the Triton 4000/2 Abyssal Explorer submarine, which is the deepest acrylic submarine in the world and can dive to a depth of 4,000 meters. These modern devices have already been successfully used for scientific expeditions and filming, which confirms their reliability and safety.

Larry Connor notes that his goal is to show the world that deep ocean exploration, despite all the risks, is worth the effort. This expedition promises to be a unique scientific study and an opportunity to rethink underwater expeditions and their potential in the modern world.
