Truth : OceanGate Titan Sub Did Not Send Any Last Messages!

This is yet another example of FAKE VIDEOS created by “content creators” to generate views and/or controversy, and here are the reasons why…

Fact #1 : OceanGate Titan Is A Submersible

First, I should just quickly point out that the OceanGate Titan is not a submarine, but a Cyclops-class submersible.

Submarines can operate independently of other vessels, but a submersible has to be transported and supported by a separate surface vessel or platform.

The OceanGate Titan, for example, was transported and supported by a Canadian-flagged ship called Polar Prince, which tows a dry dock-like “Launch and Recovery Platform” that is used to launch and recover it.

Fact #2 : OceanGate Titan Communicates Only By Text Messaging

The viral videos circulating on WhatsApp, and social media platforms like TikTok and Twitter, are all fake because it is impossible for the OceanGate Titan to send any last messages by audio or video.

The Titan submersible can only communicate with its mothership by text message. That’s because the Titan is not tethered by cable to its mothership, and it cannot communicate by Wi-Fi or radio waves.

Fact #3 : OceanGate Titan Suffered A Catastrophic Implosion

At around 9:30 am NDT on 18 June 2023, the OceanGate Titan submersible began its two-hour descent to view the Titanic shipwreck.

The Titan was required to send a text message to its mothership every 15 minutes, which it did until 11:15 am – approximately 1 hour 45 minutes into its dive. That was its last communication with its mothership.

The US Navy detected an acoustic signature at around that time that was consistent with a catastrophic implosion.

On 22 June 2023, the Odysseus 6K remotely-operated vehicle (ROV) operated by Pelagic Research Services would locate a debris field about 500 metres from the Titanic shipwreck that confirmed the implosion of the Titan submersible.

Fact #4 : They Would Not Have Time To Send Any Message

The water pressure at that depth of 3.8 kilometres (3,800 metres) below the surface is approximately 400 atmospheres, or about 6,000 psi (pounds per square inch).

An implosion at such a high pressure would have instantly obliterated everyone inside the Titan submersible. It would be like being suddenly crushed by the weight of the Eiffel Tower.

All 5 people inside the Titan submersible would not have realised what happened, never mind have the time to send any last messages.

Fact #5 : Investigators Only Have Voice Recordings From Mothership

It is also impossible for any audio messages from the Titan submersible to leak because investigators only have access to the voice recordings from its mothership, the Polar Prince.

On 24 June 2023, the Polar Prince docked near the Canadian Coast Guard in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Canadian officials then took possession of its voyage data recorder and other systems with “useful information” for further investigations.

However, there are no data or voice recorders from the Titan submersible itself because its debris are scattered at a depth of some 4,000 metres (13,000 feet). The ROV that discovered the debris was not powerful enough to lift the debris. Any recovery operation will have to take place later.

Fact #6 : They Are Just Fake Videos

This is just another example of fake videos created to generate views and/or controversies. Here are some other recent examples you may have seen recently:
