BONSERNEWS.com – First District Coast Guard, Rear Admiral John Mauger stated that the Titanic tour submarine was destroyed after a catastrophic implosion or catastrophic explosion.
The statement was made after the rescue team found debris that allegedly belonged to the Titan submarine at a location about 1,600 feet from the Titanic wreck, Thursday (22/6/2023). The five passengers on board were pronounced dead.
They are CEO of OceanGate Expeditions Stockton Rush (61), French naval commander and Titanic diving expert Paul-Henri Nargeolet (77), British entrepreneur and adventurer Hamish Harding (58), British Pakistani businessman Shahzada Dawood (48), and his son Suleman Dawood. (19).

It is not yet known exactly when the Titan submarine exploded. “This is a very complicated case, and we are still working out the details for the timeline,” said Mauger
With this, the mission to search for ships belonging to the private company OceanGate Expeditions which went missing since Sunday (18/6/2023) is declared to have ended.
Hindustan Times reported, catastrophic implosion refers to the failure of the ship’s structure due to extraordinary internal pressure.
When the pressure inside the confined space is too great and the ship’s hull cannot withstand it, the ship’s structure will suddenly collapse. This caused a catastrophic collapse.

Some experts speculate that the massive explosion occurred due to failure of the ship’s hull. The Titan submarine is a carbon fiber submarine that is claimed to be able to travel as far as 4,000 meters below sea level.
The ship dived on Sunday (19/6/2023) to explore the remains of the legendary Titanic ship which is located 3,800 meters below sea level.
Professor of marine robotics at the University of Sydney, Stefan Williams, said the pressure at that location reached 380 times the atmospheric pressure at the earth’s surface. When a failure occurs in the Titan’s hull, it can cause a catastrophic implosion.
The reason is because the ship is unable to withstand the tremendous pressure from the sea. “I don’t think one can appreciate the tremendous energy involved in the destructive process of an explosion,” said oceanographer Bob Ballard.
