The robot searching for the submarine has reached the bottom of the ocean

A debris field has been discovered during the search conducted by a remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) near the Titanic, which is involved in the international search for the Titan tourist submarine, announces the US Coast Guard, as reported by BBC News.

Experts participating in the search are evaluating this information, which will be discussed in a press conference in Boston, Northeast United States, in the coming hours, according to a tweet by the US Coast Guard.

The oxygen reserve of the submarine, which had five people on board, theoretically ran out on Thursday at 11:08 GMT (14:08 Romania time).

A co-founder of the company operating the missing submarine from the Titanic says that he believes the expertise of the crew will extend the “available window” for rescue, as reported by CNN.

“The docking frame and a rear cap of the Titan submarine” are among the fragments found near the Titanic, according to BBC News.

What needs to be done to survive as long as possible

Guillermo Söhnlein made these statements in an interview on CNN. He clarified that he was speaking on his own behalf and not on behalf of the company, OceanGate. He said that the CEO and co-founder of OceanGate, Stockton Rush, who is aboard the submarine, and the rest of the crew realized “a few days ago that the best thing they can do to ensure their rescue is to extend the limits of these provisions by relaxing as much as possible.”

Based on the expertise of the crew members, the “available window” for rescue is longer than “what most people think,” said Söhnlein.

Thursday will be a “critical day in this search and rescue mission,” he added.

“I continue to have hope for my friend and the rest of the crew. I encourage everyone to remain hopeful of bringing the crew back safely,” said Söhnlein.

An associate of the submarine pilot and a retired Navy captain, interviewed by CNN, also stated that the crew would know how to conserve oxygen through rest and maintaining as much calm as possible.

Deadline: Thursday morning

Time is crucial: the amount of oxygen on the missing submarine, which has five people on board, is becoming a vital issue, according to experts.

The Titan submarine, which begins each journey to explore the wreckage of the Titanic with an estimated 96-hour life support, has been missing since Sunday morning, with Thursday morning set as the key target for finding the vessel and those on board.

The submarine, with its rudimentary controls and limited space for passengers to stretch out, would also have “limited rations” of food and water, according to officials.
