The desire to explore the most well-known shipwreck in the world is a lifelong fascination for many people. The Titanic can now be seen up close by paid adventurers known as “mission specialists.”

Rush hopes that OceanGate will promote deep-sea exploration in the same way that Elon Musk does when it comes to space exploration. At first glance, Rush’s location in the North Atlantic doesn’t appear all that noteworthy. 3,800 meters below the surface are the remains of the Titanic, which sank in April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg during her inaugural voyage. Here, one of history’s most tragic incidents took place. The Titanic crew, OceanGate members, scientists, and a small but substantial group of paid adventurers known as “mission experts,” who each paid up to $250,000 (about £225,000) for the opportunity to witness the Titanic up close, were present when Rush arrived. Rush had successfully reached the wreck in a submersible the year before.

The trip was enjoyable, even if it would take some time to analyze the data they gathered. Rojas wiped away a tear as he came out of the submersible and said he wanted to do it to feel complete. He now feels complete.
