New audio from the Titanic submarine disaster has been released.

The Titan vessel famously went missing last summer when it set out to explore the wreckage of the Titanic in the North Atlantic Ocean.

The exploration ended in tragedy, and after spending days searching for the vessel, debris was found.

It was then confirmed that the five people on board had sadly died.

But now, months on, brand new audio from the Titan disaster has been released.

The five passengers on board during the ill-fated exploration included British billionaire and adventurer Hamish Harding, 58, Shahzada Dawood, 48, and his son Suleman Dawood, 19, French submersible pilot Paul-Henri Nargeolet, 77 and Oceangate’s CEO and founder Stockton Rush, 61.

Rush had previously spoken about his fears for the vessel’s safety, telling the Unsung Science podcast: “What I worry about most are things that will stop me from being able to get to the surface.

“Overhangs, fish nets, entanglement hazards. And, that’s just a technique, piloting technique.

“It’s pretty clear – if it’s an overhang, don’t go under it. If there is a net, don’t go near it. So, you can avoid those if you are just slow and steady.”

He added: “You know, at some point, safety just is a pure waste. I mean, if you just want to be safe, don’t get out of bed.

“At some point, you’re going to take some risk, and it really is a risk/reward question. I think I can do this just as safely by breaking the rules.”

After the vessel was lost, it was confirmed that its air supply would have run out at 12:08 pm GMT (7:08am EST) on June 22.

After this time, all the passengers on board were believed to be dead.

OceanGate’s full statement read: “We now believe that our CEO Stockton Rush, Shahzada Dawood and his son Suleman Dawood, Hamish Harding, and Paul-Henri Nargeolet, have sadly been lost.

“These men were true explorers who shared a distinct spirit of adventure, and a deep passion for exploring and protecting the world’s oceans.

“Our hearts are with these five souls and every member of their families during this tragic time. We grieve the loss of life and joy they brought to everyone they knew.”

It continued: “This is an extremely sad time for our dedicated employees who are exhausted and grieving deeply over this loss.

“The entire OceanGate family is deeply grateful for the countless men and women from multiple organisations of the international community who expedited wide-ranging resources and have worked so very hard on this mission.

“We appreciate their commitment to finding these five explorers, and their days and nights of tireless work in support of our crew and their families.

“This is a very sad time for the entire explorer community, and for each of the family members of those lost at sea.

“We respectfully ask that the privacy of these families be respected during this most painful time.”

But now, new audio from the vessel has been released.

The eery ‘banging sounds’ from the vessel were seen by some, at the time, as an indication of hope the voyagers were still alive.

But now, the Royal Canadian Air Force has released audio of the rhythmic tapping sounds to the makers of a new documentary Minute by Minute: The Titan Sub Disaster.

“The symmetry between those knockings is very unusual,” former Navy submarine Captain Ryan Ramsey says in the documentary.

“It’s rhythmic, it’s like somebody is making that sound, and the fact that it is repeated is really unusual.”
