Many people have a lifelong desire to see the most famous shipwreck in the world. And now there’s a chance for paid adventurers known as “mission specialists” to gain a close-up view of the Titanic.

In the same way that businessmen like Elon Musk, Richard Branson, and Jeff Bezos are advancing space exploration, Stockton Rush hopes that OceanGate will encourage deep-sea exploration. Rush’s position in the North Atlantic doesn’t seem particularly notable at first. The remains of the Titanic, which went down in April 1912 after striking an iceberg on her maiden voyage, are 3,800 meters below the surface. One of history’s most infamous and tragic events occurred here. The Titanic crew, members of OceanGate, scientists, and a small but substantial group of paid adventurers known as “mission experts,” who each paid up to $250,000 (approximately £225,000) for the opportunity to observe Titanic up close, were all present when Rush arrived. Rush had used a submersible to successfully approach the wreck the previous year.

Even though it will take several months to study the data they collected, the trip was satisfying. After coming out of the submersible, Rojas brushed away a tear and indicated that he wanted to do it in order to feel complete. Now he feels complete.
