A Submarine Used To Explore Wreckage From The Titanic Has Gone Missing

June 20, 2023 / Posted by:

For the past century, people have been romanticizing the last moments of the SS Titanic‘s ill-fated one-way trip to the bottom of the ocean as if it were a cruise that promoted a little deep-sea diving as an incentive for its guests. Let me remind anyone who wants to see the wreckage in 2023; DON’T. It’s an old rusted ship you can see in photos online, dry and at home. But some people still want to see it up close. And this is one time when the secrets of the sea should have been left where they are as a submarine owned by OceanGate, which provides excursions to see the Titanic after days at sea, has been missing since the weekend, and many are concerned about its whereabouts.

According to TMZ, a five-member voyage began last week and went missing about an hour and 45 minutes into its journey. On the sub is billionaire Hamish Harding, who easily dropped the $250K for the trip, but it shouldn’t be that surprising since this is the same dude who bummed a ride on Jeff Bezos’ dick rocket last year.

Listen, I’m all for space exploration because we’re not getting to the flying cars we were promised as kids fast enough. But when it comes to the sea, I don’t even want to dip my toe in the water because, with my luck, that one random current will grab my whole foot and take me to Atlantis so I can sing with Ariel and Flounder. In other words, it’s always going to be a no for me, dawg. Not Hamish, as TMZ has reported. Apparently, the final frontier of space was not enough of a thrill for Hamish as he and a crew of four OceanGate members have been missing since Sunday after their most recent deep dive, and this may not ruin out on a happy note after all of this time.

Unclear where exactly it lost touch with its home base … but reports say the submarine had begun a 12,500-foot descent into the ocean to see the Titanic wreckage up close off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada. [Harding] is said to be the lone civilian accompanying the crew … as confirmed by his family.
