I hope there is a happy ending to this news story, unlike the sunken ship they set out to view in 2023, but I don't like the chances of there being one somehow.
"OceanGate Expeditions chief executive Stockton Rush told CBS late last year that his company sees no shortage of “Titaniacs,” people obsessed with the ship who “would mortgage their homes or wouldn’t even blink at the cost of this trip.” Rush boasted that his five-person sub was one of the few capable of visiting the wreckage.
I admire people like these who are brave enough ... or stupid enough ... to take a voyage like that, but you couldn't pay me the $250,000 a seat to risk my life to go down and take a look at one of history's tragic sea adventures gone wrong.
