It has been a year since the disaster in which five private travelers tried to reach the wreck of the Titanic and died in the attempt. Now the next billionaire wants to take the plunge.

The next adventurous billionaire wants to make the trip to the Titanic. According to the Wall Street Journal, real estate mogul Larry Connor has announced plans for a risky expedition.

In 2023, five people died trying to reach the wreck in a mini-submarine. Connor has now invested a lot of money and time in developing a new mini-submarine. Together with Patrick Lahey from Triton Submarines, he has developed an underwater vehicle that is particularly robust and safe.

The development of the “Triton 4000/2 Abyssal Explorer”, which has space for two people, cost around 20 million US dollars (just over 18 million euros), according to a report in the Wall Street Journal. The underwater vehicle is said to be more powerful than previous models. The exact date of its expedition is not yet known.

The tragic sinking of the “Titan” occurred about 600 kilometers off the coast of Newfoundland when the submarine suddenly imploded. The search for the submarine and its passengers made international headlines.

The submarine disappeared from view on June 18, 2023, and the coast guards of several countries joined in the search. Four days later, a debris field was discovered and the deaths of all passengers were confirmed.
