I amused / annoyed by the coverage of the missing tourist submersible. Reporter who haven't the wit to do a little research in order to ask intelliget questions and look like the complete morons they really are.

The the variety of "experts" they find. Some knowledgeable like a former US Naval sub skipper. But most don't know all that much and speculations all over the map.

They should ask Don Lemon if it was swallowed by a black hole.

I thought their unofficial motto was "You can bias buy us."

Is GROOT safe? Even tree mascots are racist now.

Groot and Treebeard could not be reached for comment.

I have never seen a poem as racist as a tree.

OceanGate Titan submarine operated by video game controller, CEO says

That is not how you build life critical systems. Sheesh. The micro switch in the friggin' game control glitches, the sub drives into the Titanic and gets tangled in the wreck or collapses part of the wreak on the sub.

I saw one article, talking about weather could've affect the sub... no you ijit not 12,000 feet down.

The surface search has not turned up anything, and comms were lost as the Titan reported arrive at Titanic.

So reasonable conclusion they are down at the wreck site. Worst case scenarios, leak and or hull collapse or on board fire.

Given the redundant surfacing mechanisms barring catastrophic failure they are mostly like entangled and trapped.

The only rescue option is getting another submersible down to them. If they are lucky the other sub may be able to clear whatever is entrapping them and surface on their own. Or attaching a cable for attempting a hoist. That runs the risk of damaging the sub during a lift if the debris is not cleared first.

I've seen nothing about a submersible being on scene for such a operation.

I don't have time today, but I need to write up a note in the Frontier about something that happened recently involving what should have been treated as a proper safety system and wasn't.

The US is waiting to find the sub before sending any rescue sub.

But this might be a worst case scenario

OceanGate, company behind missing Titanic tourist sub, once subject of lawsuit over safety complaints

OceanGate, the company behind the submersible that went missing while visiting the wreckage of the Titanic, was once the subject of a massive lawsuit from an employee who alleged he was fired because he had raised safety concerns over how deep the vessel could descend.  

Lochridge’s counterclaim states he used an inspection report that identified numerous issues that posed "serious safety concerns, and offered corrective action and recommendations for each." 

At the meeting, Lochridge discovered why he had been denied access to the viewport information from the engineering department: The viewport at the forward of the submersible was only built to a certified pressure of 1,300 meters – although OceanGate intended to take passengers down to depths of 4,000 meters, according to the complaint. 

The documents say Lochridge learned the viewport manufacturer "would only certify to a depth of 1,300 meters due to the experimental design of the viewport supplied by OceanGate, which was out of the Pressure Vessels for Human Occupancy standards.

No biggie... Titanic is only 3 times deeper than the 1300m for the viewport.

They were planning on a certification for 4000m.... Titanic is at 3800.

What safety margin were they putting into that 4000m?

Failed viewing port would certain fit the circumstance we have.

I’m starting to think that’s actually the best case scenario. At least it would’ve been quick.

Yup, sitting around waiting for your air to run out... not a good thing.

Air or freeze to death first?

Water temp at the wreak is just above freezing, it the electrical is out no heaters. 5 people would warm the small space some.
Looks like cold might beat out air, hypothermia around 48 hours vs. 96 for the air on board.

Thinking about the lack of signals, that tells me there was some catastrophic problem that prevented them from sending any messages.
