It is with sad hearts, and our deepest condolences that we report that there were possible human remains found overnight; which is believed to had been those of the 5 passengers aboard the OceanGate submersible.

During a news conference on Thursday, June 22, the U.S Coast Guard had confirmed that the 5 crew members aboard the Titan, an OceanGate submersible, had unfortunately passed away after what they believe was a catastrophic implosion while on their journey down to the wreckage of the Titanic.

The debris from the submersible was found about 1,600 feet from the bow of the Titanic wreckage.

When the adventure first began, the submersible was said to have had  96 hours of oxygen that should have been sufficient enough to complete the trip down and back safely.

The Titan was roughly the size of a mini van, and is equipped with two monitors, one bucket/ziplock bag for a toilet, a small window for viewing the ocean, and a what is being described as a game controller for steering and operation.

It was sealed from the outside with 17 heavy duty bolts that can only be opened from the outside, so the crew has no way to free themselves.

The Titan also had 7 different components that were designed to bring the submersible back from its descend, so many experts were hopeful that the vessel and crew could have been floating on the surface somewhere in the middle of the ocean.

The Navy, U.S military, U.S Coast Guard, Canadian authorities, plus other outside agencies have been working for days to retrieve the missing submersible from the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean in an attempt answer the questions many still have.

Many news outlets had previously reported that sonar possibly picked up banging noises that could have been a S.O.S being sent from the passengers onboard the Titan in Morse code.

The banging seemed to happen every 30 minutes for about fours hours, but nothing was ever confirmed.

According to an ABC News article, “The evidence will be transported to a port in the U.S. for “further analysis and testing” by the Marine Board of Investigation, the Coast Guard said.”

“The evidence will provide investigators from several international jurisdictions with critical insights into the cause of this tragedy,” Marine Board of Investigation Chair Capt. Jason Neubauer said in a statement. “There is still a substantial amount of work to be done to understand the factors that led to the catastrophic loss of the TITAN and help ensure a similar tragedy does not occur again.”

Many have come out and explained how dangerous this mission was from the very beginning.

Titan’s owner and parent company OceanGate has had several lawsuits against them from things ranging from unexpected cancellations to wrongful termination of an employee that spoke out in reference to safety concerns.

David Pogue, an American technology and science writer, has been very vocal on his previous experiences with submersibles and what he believes could have happened in this situation.
