Remains of the submarine that disappeared in the Atlantic Ocean while descending to the wreckage of the RMS Titanic were found on Thursday, June 22 after four days of searching.

At what point did the Titan submarine lose its signal?

According to the BBC, the Titan, the name given to the vessel, had at least five people on board and lost communication after 1 hour and 45 minutes of starting its descent of 12,500 feet.

The US Coast Guard found remains of the Titan in a debris field with parts of the submarine that were consistent with the Titan.

When and how did the catastrophic implosion happen

The submarine owned and operated by OceanGate was on its way down the Titanic wreckage when the tragedy ocurred. Rear Adm. John Mauger, the First Coast Guard District commander, explained that the search was very complex due to the location and depth of the debris field.

He explained that the Horizon Artic ROV will continue to search for debris on the sea floor in order to answer the questions everyone has about when, how and why the catostrophic implosion took place.

New ships and and underwater vessels from several countries participated in the search. “There is an enormous complexity...due to the location being so far offshore,” Captain Frederick of the US Coast Guard had said.
