¿Que pudo causar la desaparición del sumergible cerca del Titanic?

By Ninian Carter

June 21, 2023 - Expertos han sugerido cuatro escenarios posibles sobre lo que pudo haber causado que el sumergible Titan de OceanGate perdiera la comunicación.

Experts have suggested four possible scenarios for what may have gone wrong for OceanGate’s Titan submersible to lose communication one hour and 45 minutes into its two-hour descent.

1) Blackout: Titan may have lost power and fallen to seabed, or an inbuilt safety system could have helped it return to the surface, where it now drifts.

2) Fire: Electrical short circuit could have caused a fire, creating toxic fumes and compromising vehicle’s navigation and control systems.

3) Entangling: Sub could have become entangled in Titanic wreck’s extensive debris field, which covers approximately 15 square kilometres.

4) Implosion: A defect in composite hull could have caused an instantaneous implosion – killing all on board in less than 40 milliseconds.

Time is of the essence, with search and rescue teams needing to find and free the passengers before its four-day supply of oxygen runs out.
