Titanic Tourism: Why Rich People Take Such Risky Sea Voyages? How Investigators Will Find Real Cause Of Accident Of Titan Submarine?

The wreckage of the Titan submarine has been found 1600 feet away from the wreckage of the Titanic ship. The Oceangate Company has reported that all 5 people aboard the Titan have died. Out of 5 people aboard this submarine, 4 were billionaires.

Why did billionaires go 13 thousand feet below the sea, what is Titanic tourism, for which people spend up to Rs 2 crore for a ticket?

About 111 years ago today, on 15 April 1912, a ship named Titanic sank in the North Atlantic Ocean. About 1,500 people died in this. 73 years after the accident i.e. in 1985, the wreckage of this ship was found near Newfoundland Island near Canada. This debris was 13 thousand feet below the sea.

As soon as the information about this wreck spread, people started expressing their desire to see it. In 2021, the American company Oceangate started Titanic Tourism to show this wreck lying in the Atlantic. The submarine which has been missing since June 18 had gone on Titanic tourism with 5 people including 4 billionaires.

Rich people want to have unforgettable adventure in life

Money does not matter much to rich people. They want to have adventure in life. Want to do something that they can't forget for the rest of your life. This is the reason why rich people take such sea voyages.

Oceangate company takes 2.50 lakh dollars i.e. about 2 crore rupees from a person to take them on Titanic tourism. This journey starts from St. John Newfoundland, Canada. This sea journey is of 8 days and 7 nights. The company takes a maximum of 5 people on this tour at a time.

The British Pakistani teenager who died with his billionaire father in a submersible missing since it dived down into the wreckage of the Titanic last weekend was a student from the University of Strathclyde in Scotland, which stated support for his classmates on Friday.

Each piece of debris will be picked from sea's surface

According to Ryan Ramsay, a former submarine commander in Britain's Royal Navy, the agencies involved in the rescue operation will try to understand the causes of the accident and how the accident could have been prevented. For this, they will pick up each piece of debris from the surface of the sea.

He says, “There is no black box in this submarine. In such a situation, you will not get information about its last location. But apart from this, the process of investigating this accident will be no different from the investigation of any aircraft accident."

After the wreckage of the submarine is taken out of the sea, every piece of it will be thoroughly examined.

Tiny bits of debris will be passed through microscope 

Tiny bits of debris will be passed through a microscope to understand the direction of the carbon fiber filament.

In this process, the smallest cracks will be searched, from which it will be known from where the end of this submarine started.

During this time, the big question that the investigators will try to find the answer is whether the cause of the accident was structural failure.

Professor Blair Thorton of Southampton University says, “If this had happened, the pressure on the submarine would have been as much as the weight of the Eiffel Tower."

The core part of the submarine must have suffered a terrible accident in which the submarine must have shrunk very quickly into a very small space.

Some experts are of the opinion that the most important question among all this is that if this has happened then whether it happened because of not testing properly.
