The first trip to the Titanic after the disaster of the bathyscaphe

The first dive to the sunken Titanic after the disaster of the submarine “Titan” is scheduled to take place in July. RMS Titanic Inc will use remotely operated vehicles to investigate the wreck. The US federal government previously tried to block the expedition last year. The Daily Mail writes about it.

This will be the first mission to the wreckage of the famous sunken liner since the disaster of the submarine “Titan”, which killed all five passengers on board as a result of a “catastrophic explosion”.

The unmanned mission will be carried out by RMS Titanic Inc., which owns the rights to raise the Titanic.

RMS Titanic Inc is committed to preserving for future generations the tragic story of the Titanic, which sank in April 1912.

The announcement came a year after the Oceangate disaster claimed the life of company CEO Stockton Rush (61 ), Hamish Gardin (58 years old), Paul Henry Nargole (77 years old), as well as father and son Shahzada (48 years old) and Suleiman Daoud (19 years old).

On June 18, 2023, a £250,000 expedition disappeared after plunging into the sea to investigate the wreckage of the Titanic.

The US federal government tried to prevent the sinking of the Titanic wreckage. , citing federal and international agreements that the wreck is a mass burial site.

However, RMS Titanic Inc. received permission to inspect the area, explaining that they want to disturb the wreckage as little as possible.

According to them, this includes “the hull of the ship and the remains of 1,500 people who died when it sank”.

p>This year, the dive will be completely unmanned, the devices will be controlled remotely. Last week, the company announced in a Reddit thread that it intends to keep its drones underwater for a total of 20 days to gather as much information as possible about the site.

The July expedition will be the first for RMS Titanic Inc. since 2010, and they intend to use the most advanced technology.

They also intend to collect as many details as possible about the Oceangate tragedy and the Titanic tragedy.

One of their main goals is the return of Marconi's wireless system — the equipment used to send an SOS signal during the disaster in the North Atlantic. On board the representatives of RMS Titanic Inc. they will not rise.

The ship “Titanic” lies at the bottom of international waters and does not belong to anyone, but RMS Titanic Inc. was granted exclusive rights to raise the debris.

These rights were transferred to the firm under an agreement concluded between Liverpool and the London Shipping Association in 1994.

Recall that on June 18, 2023, the Oceangate expedition, the ticket price of which was 250,000 pounds sterling, disappeared after diving into the sea to investigate the remains of the Titanic. All five passengers aboard the bathyscaphe died, including British billionaire and adventurer Hamish Harding, as well as Pakistani-British billionaire Shahzad Dawood and his 19-year-old son Suleiman. Later it turned out that the young man did not want to swim, but agreed for the sake of his father.
