Finding the Titanic-bound submarine – what we know

Published

on

Hundreds of search teams have swarmed an area over 1,400 km2 in search of the missing submarine, which was taking passengers to see the Titanic wreck.

Ships and planes from the United States and Canada are searching for a submarine that went missing off the coast of southeastern Canada while taking tourists to see Titanic wreckage.

A boat on the surface – the Polar Prince – lost contact with the submarine, the Titan, about one hour and 45 minutes after it began diving toward the Titanic wreckage.

Does the submarine have any passengers?

A pilot and four passengers were on board, and the vessel could be submerged for 96 hours, but it was unclear whether it was still underwater or had surfaced.

One of the passengers is British billionaire Hamish Harding, according to a relative’s post on social media.

Harding’s stepson asked for “thoughts and prayers” on Facebook after Mr Harding went missing on submarine.

A few days later, the stepson removed the post, citing respect for the privacy of the family.

Earlier this week, Mr Harding posted that he would be aboard the submarine on Facebook.

He has not posted since then.

In Harding’s post, he said the expedition left on Friday, and the first dive was scheduled for Sunday.

Harding holds three Guinness World Records: longest duration at full ocean depth for a crewed vessel, longest distance traversed at full ocean depth for a crewed vessel and fastest circumnavigation via both poles for an aeroplane.

In March 2021, Harding and ocean explorer Victor Vescovo performed two of these feats in a two-person deep-submergence vehicle in the Mariana Trench – the deepest point in the ocean.

He traveled to space last June with fellow billionaire Bill Gates

Democrats scramble to rally behind Harris as Trump allies launch next phase of campaign

Biden Withdraws: President Joe Biden Ends Reelection Bid, Endorses Kamala Harris.

 

After weeks of battling to salvage his political career – claiming he wouldn’t be stepping down after a disastrous debate performance – the president’s sudden change of course was not announced through an Oval Office address or a campaign speech. Instead, it was revealed in a letter posted to social media while he was recovering from Covid-19 at his beach house in Delaware.

“And while it has been my intention to seek reelection, I believe it is in the best interest of my party and the country for me to stand down and to focus solely on fulfilling my duties as President for the remainder of my term,” Biden wrote in a letter posted to X.

Harris expressed her gratitude for Biden’s endorsement, stating she is “honoured” and committed to “earning and winning” the nomination. Should she secure the nomination, Harris would make history as the first Black woman and first Asian American to lead the ticket of a major political party. To facilitate her candidacy, the Biden-Harris campaign has updated its filings with the Federal Election Commission, renaming its principal committee to reflect Harris’s new status as a presidential candidate.

Despite Biden’s support, the path forward remains uncertain. It is unclear whether Harris will automatically become the nominee or what alternative processes the Democratic Party might consider. Additionally, sources suggest that Senator Joe Manchin, an independent from West Virginia, is contemplating re-registering as a Democrat to enter the presidential race.

In response to Biden’s withdrawal, former President Donald Trump criticised Biden as “the worst president by far in the history of our country” during a call with CNN. Trump has also launched a fundraising appeal to rally his supporters.

Published

Donald Trump has said he thinks Kamala Harris will be easier to beat than Joe Biden.

With Biden out, Trump’s campaign will now adjust its strategy, focusing on attacking Harris and any other possible Democratic candidates. They aim to convince voters that Harris would be just as ineffective as Biden.

Biden faced growing doubts about his ability to win re-election, especially after a weak debate performance against Trump. Some Democrats also lost confidence in his leadership, leading him to step down.

Donald Trump said he thinks Kamala Harris will be easier to defeat than Biden. Trump and his team quickly began attacking both Biden and Harris online, claiming that Biden was not fit to be president and that Harris would be just as bad.

Allies of former President Donald Trump quickly launched their campaign against Vice President Kamala Harris on Sunday afternoon, preparing a series of anti-Harris ads and planning their strategies for attacking her.

“I call her laughing Kamala,” Trump told the crowd, during his nearly two-hour appearance. “You can tell a lot by a laugh. She’s crazy. She’s nuts.”
