WHAT'S debris field? A “debris field” has been located near the Titanic submarine wreckage, the Coast Guard confirms

A “debris field” has been located near the Titanic wreckage, the Coast Guard confirms. 

"Experts within the unified command are evaluating the information.”

This information may spell the grim reality that all lives on the sub were lost.

More Details:👇

A news conference to discuss the findings is scheduled to take place at 8pm UK time tonight.

The debris field was found by a remotely operated vehicle deployed by Horizon Arctic, a Canadian vessel.
The ROV, which is equipped with cameras and sonar, had successfully managed to reach the sea floor.

What is a debris field?

Investigators and search and rescue are still unclear as to exactly what happened to the OceanGate vessel that went missing last weekend. The voyage was supposed to take four tourists and the machine’s creator, OceanGate CEO Stockton Rush, to the wreckage of the Titanic.

It had been speculated that the submersible may have run out of electrical power, or become entangled in something in the depths of the Atlantic Ocean.

However, if the debris field identified by the ROV is linked to the Titan mission, the situation could be very different. Sky's US correspondent James Matthews, reporting from Boston, described the updated statement as "significant".

He added: "The word 'debris' doesn't sound good at all in a situation and at a depth where the water pressure is huge.

“It can do considerable damage to vessels - the like of the Titan - on the seabed, 4,000m (13,123ft) down.
"Should the worst have happened, and that vessel was broken up somehow by the pressures at that depth, the word 'debris' would absolutely fit that worst-case scenario.”

The Coast Guard said Thursday morning one of the robots started searching for sub on the sea floor. Another robot was also added to the search effort Thursday.

The sub launched into the Atlantic from a Canadian research vessel Sunday morning, and the vessel lost contact with the Titan an hour and 45 minutes into the dive.

Officials previously said the sub had a limited amount of oxygen on board that could have lasted 96 hours, or into Thursday morning.

On Wednesday, Coast Guard Capt. Jamie Frederick said the remaining oxygen was "a dialogue that's happening" but not the only detail being considered in continuing the search.

Debris is the collection of pieces that are produced by the destruction of an object, often spread over a wide area due to the force of the incident. A debris field is the area about which the debris is spread.

The incredible pressure that the vessel would have been subjected to at the depths of the ocean could have caused an implosion and instantaneous destruction of the submersible. 

The co-founder of the company that owns the sub, OceanGate, said Thursday was "a critical day" in the search. In a statement on Facebook, Guillermo Sohnlein said the group may have extended their life support supplies by "relaxing as much as possible."
