Wealthy explorer cancels Titanic sub trip due to alarming risks.

A British Millionaire’s Decision to Back Out of the Titanic Sub Expedition

In a twist of fate, a British millionaire who had initially signed up to join the sightseers on the missing Titanic submarine had a gut feeling that made him change his mind.

Chris Brown, 61, was one of the first people to join the expedition with OceanGate Expeditions, the company offering deep-sea visits to the wreck of the Titanic. However, he became increasingly uneasy about the project and decided to drop out.

Brown had concerns about the quality of technology and materials used by OceanGate Expeditions. One of his worries was that the submersible was being designed with controls based on “computer game-style controllers.”

His decision not to proceed with the expedition turned out to be a wise one. The submarine has now gone missing off the coast of Newfoundland, and rescue operations are underway to search for the vessel and its five passengers.

Concerns and Troubles

Brown’s concerns about the submersible were not unfounded. He discovered that old scaffolding poles were used for the sub’s ballast, and the controls were based on unconventional gaming controllers.

Others have also expressed worries about the safety of the submersible. A CBS journalist had a harrowing experience inside the Titanic submersible just last year.

Journalist David Pogue, who took a spin on the machine in 2022, ended up getting lost during the tour. He and his group were lost for two-and-a-half hours.

Passenger Mike Reiss noted that even the release form for the expedition mentioned the word “death” repeatedly, adding to the unease surrounding the venture.

Missing Submarine and Hope for the Future

Unfortunately, Brown’s friend, Hamish Harding, went ahead with the trip and is now among the missing. Despite the uncertainty, Brown remains hopeful for his friend’s safety.

While the search for the missing submarine continues, Brown believes that Harding’s calm demeanor and strategic thinking will be a source of hope and comfort for the others on board.

As the rescue efforts continue, the fate of the missing Titanic submarine remains uncertain. The risks and concerns that led Brown to back out of the expedition serve as a reminder of the importance of safety and thorough preparation in such ventures.
