History was made today

"OceanGate Expeditions proudly announces that Stockton Rush, co-pilot Scott Griffith, and Mission Specialist PH Nargeolet, former French Naval Commander and legendary Nautile submersible pilot made history by completing the first dive to RMS Titanic in a 5-person submersible."

Interesting. I read up a little on the specs of the sub. Fascinating piece of technology. One thing that did stand out to me was it said designed to go to depths of 13.100 ft (4000 M). That's only 5-600 feet of wiggle room. But I'm sure it can probably go deeper and the engineers de-rated the specs for safety reasons. Cheers.

awesome, thanks Steven!
I can't wait to take a look :)

You're an engineer, right? Fascinating!

No. My last 20 years working I was an I&C Tech. I don't have an engineering degree. A couple of my co-techs got their degrees by challenging the courses and got degrees in process control in a year or 2. It was a good move on their part. An engineering degree can be a good choice for somebody getting into the work force. One of my nieces got her degree in aeronautical engineering. She graduated on a Friday and started work the following Monday making what it took me 20 years as a tech to make. A good engineer will always be in demand. Something to consider when you go to college if that's your plan. Cheers.

So great that they're finally diving there! We've been anticipating this since the announcement and unfortunate delays by a few years, can't wait to see what they find down there.

Nice clip. If those are accurate it looks like that has a lot better viewing ports than the previous crafts that have visited her. Hopefully they might find something new. Cheers.

I see Cathy-Jutilla Lamet is having a great time of it. I've known her for several years now. If she's at this year's Pigeon Forge Conference, I'm looking forward to what she has to say!

From the picture it looks like they are having a good time. Adventures like that will stay with them for a long time. Good for them. Cheers.

Lucky, huh ;)

And yeah Mike, Ms. Lamet seems super nice, from her posts on Facebook and stuff.

New image of Galley Tiles and dishes! I've heard there was a quarter mile stretch South of the Stern, of Galley items. Its nicknamed "Hell's Kitchen," and I wonder if its this area.

Quality and visibility are excellent, which bodes well for when they show us something that isn't the tip of the bow, yet again...
