Why is no one talking about the missing submarine?

At the time of this post, there is 1 hour and 34 minutes remaining until the oxygen runs out.

 

I have to say, what a terrifying way to go out like that.

Yup. Pretty crazy. They probably already passed away.

One of the most fundamental safety statements made and the simplest was painting the "vessel" neon yellow or orange so it would be visible on the high sea.  it is the same colour as the waves and breakers in the Atlantic.  if it is on the surface, for the lack of $75 worth of paint these people could be dead without any hope of being found easily.

 

The more likely scenario though is that due to the size of the vessel it decompressed and nobody heard it on any sort of sonar because it would barely register.

The core is titanium wrapped in carbon fibre. An oversight of radar or sonar pings. But worse he failed to heed most experienced submariners submissions or fears. Firing 2 experienced workers that had questions about safety. Avoiding US tsb’s policy’s ( international waters)    more money than brains.

If this rich jerk, has his company registered in Florida, can he shield himself behind the Law that DeSantis signed?

you know, the one that let's Elon off the hook for anything that goes wrong in space-a low oxygen environment?

 

actually, at this point it is about his companies liability, don't think he's even alive to worry, at this stage

He made very concise statements about safety being an impediment.

 

These were very well recorded.

 

This man is the epitome of FAFO and he took 4 people with him who paid him a literal fortune to be part of the FO crew

If there’s any share holders I wonder if they’d forfeit the 2 mil they made , to cover search and rescue costs? Did  they have to put up bonds?

Just read there might not have been insurance. A few company’s refused immediately. 

An uncertified diving machine controlled by a joy con controller that isn't actually tethered to a vessel that plans to visit a grave site 13,000 feet underwater with no actual means of propulsion?  Can't imagine who would turn that up

Guess they found out

 

An ROV operating near the Titanic has found a debris field, according to a social media post from the U.S. coast guard. Experts with the search team are now analyzing the information.

The coast guard will be holding a news conference in Boston at 3 p.m. ET to discuss the findings. The coast guard says the find was made by an ROV deployed by the crew of the Horizon Arctic, an offshore supply vessel from Newfoundland.

The ship is owned by the same company that operates the Polar Prince — the vessel that has taken criticism for its response after losing communication with the Titan submersible on Sunday. 

The fate of the five missing crew members remains unknown.

You sign a massive waiver acknowledging that you are aware you're risking your life and accept the risk. The company has zero liability.

 

They literally signed up to risk their lives.

It had 4 little electric thrusters which were for directional purposes,  apparently using them was minimal , everything was turned off during descent to preserve battery power. If that scared the crap out of you there was a handy ziplock “head” to use.

For the low low price of $250k

Can the company at least pay the therapy bills for any survivors? I assume you lose your mind after so many hours in a tin can.

The sad thing is most of the passengers have lots of money, so even if they did make it out. They'd probably just take care of themselves.

The passengers probably have more money and assets than the company.
