About Titan Submarine Incident
Titan submarine went on an expedition on 18 June 2023 to explore the wreckage of the Titanic ship. The submarine lost its communication after 2 hours of deployment, and that confirmed the cause of the incident.
This was the most viral video which surfed over social media apps and showed the happening of the complete incident with an implosion.
What Exactly is Catastrophic Implosion?
The pressure may arise from various sources like fierce winds, water force, or even seismic tremors. When the load surpasses the structure’s endurance, it yields abruptly and forcefully, triggering a catastrophic collapse.
The aftermath of catastrophic implosions is a scene of immense devastation, inflicting extensive harm upon the surrounding area.

Next Steps in Rescue Mission
Armed with these clever underwater robots (ROVs), the Coast Guard holds hope in their hearts to unveil new details about the Titanic, enlightening us on the events that led to its heartbreaking descent. Harnessing the power of cutting-edge technology, they carry a bright optimism, believing that more exciting revelations are waiting to be unearthed and shared with the entire world.
Where Did The Titan Submarine Turn Up?
In a truly astonishing turn of events, rescue teams, as reported by the Coast Guard, made a remarkable discovery near the Titanic. Imagine, approximately 1,600 feet away from the Titanic’s front, an incredible sight unfolded: a cluster of wreckage emerged, including the Titan’s landing frame and rear cover. What makes this finding even more astonishing is that it occurred after it was thought the submersible had depleted its oxygen supply.
This field of debris turned out to be an unexpected trove of treasures, holding broken bits of wood, fragments of metal, and other remnants from the ill-fated ship.
This remarkable discovery has gifted historians with a wealth of knowledge, granting them profound glimpses into the heart-wrenching tragedy of the Titanic’s sinking.

Special Safety Investigation To Be Launched In The US
The US National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) and the US Coast Guard are preparing to launch an investigation into the Titan sub incident, as revealed by the NTSB. While the US Coast Guard has yet to confirm it officially, they are still working on determining the roles, responsibilities, and scope of the probe.
It seems that this investigation is separate from the one announced earlier by the Transportation Safety Board of Canada.
The NTSB and the US Coast Guard will conduct a thorough investigation to find out the cause of the incident. They will examine all relevant data and the conditions leading up to the event. The actions taken by the Titan sub’s crew will also be reviewed to assess their appropriateness. Furthermore, any potential safety issues contributing to the accident will be investigated.
The findings of the NTSB and US Coast Guard investigation will be made public and will help shape future regulations and requirements for submersible vessels. The goal is to prevent such incidents from happening again by taking necessary steps informed by this investigation.
