Titanic’s Director James Cameron Says Titan’s Explosion is No Surprise

by Nada Khaled

The director of the infamous “Titanic” movie, James Cameron, which achieved great success in 1997, revealed spoke up about the circulating news of the explosion of the submarine “Titan” lost in the North Atlantic Ocean during a trip to explore the wreckage of the most famous ship in the world, Titanic, and said that he was not surprised this happened, pointing to a fundamental defect in the Submarine design.

Cameron, who dove 33 times to see the ship’s wreckage during the filming process, added in an interview with CNN that when he first heard the news of the submarine incident last Monday, he contacted the sources and discovered within about half an hour that the submarine had lost contact and tracking simultaneously.

He emphasized: The only scenario that can explain what happened is an implosion, a shock so strong that it wiped out the system containing the transponder used by the mother ship to track the location of the submarine.

The director stated that he had obtained some additional information that seemed to confirm that the submarine had exploded, and added that false hopes continued to increase as rescue teams searched for the missing passengers during the following days, which he believed was pointless.

He added: I kept track of the search efforts, hoping I was wrong, but I was fully aware there was no point in searching. The celebrated director went on to express his deepest condolences to the passengers’ families.

US Coast Guard Admiral John Mauger announced yesterday evening in a press conference that an automated vehicle fully-equipped to dive into the depths and sent from a Canadian ship discovered a piece of the missing submarine at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, about 488 meters from the Titanic, and at a depth of four kilometers from the surface of the water, in a remote corner of the northern ocean.

Camron further stressed that the debris field indicates a catastrophic implosion.

Coast Guard officials later announced the discovery of five large fragments of Titan’s wreckage, around 6.7 meters long, including the tail cone and two sections of the submarine’s hull. However, there was no mention of whether human remains were seen at the site.

It is worth noting that Titan, operated by the US-based Ocean Gate Expeditions, was launched on a two-hour trip on Sunday morning but lost contact with the support vessel after about an hour and 45 minutes.

On board were British billionaire Hamish Harding (58 years), Pakistani businessman Shahzada Dawood (48 years) and his son Suleiman (19 years), both are British citizens, in addition to the French explorer Paul Henry Nargolet (77 years); and Founder and CEO of Ocean Gate Expeditions, Rush Stockton, on a trip that cost each of them $250,000 and, most importantly, their lives.
