On Thursday, the U.S. Coast Guard announced via Twitter that they had discovered a “debris field near the Titanic” using a remotely operated vehicle during their search for the missing Titan submersible, which had five individuals on board. The Coast Guard stated that experts within the unified command were currently assessing the information and had not yet positively confirmed the identity of the debris.

The disappearance of the Titan, a submarine operated by Oceangate, a technology startup, during a tourist expedition to the Titanic wreckage, has captivated the attention of the world. The coast guard informed that Canadian and French remotely operated vehicles were scheduled to reach the ocean floor on Thursday morning to aid in the search for the missing submarine.
