The collision between the submarine and the remains of the Titanic remained silent.
The remains of the RMS Titanic were reached by a submarine last year, but the accident was silenced by a US government agency. UU., According to a report.
The collision was made by a ship hired by the British company EYOS Expeditions, but US authorities never revealed that it had hit the wreck of the legendary ocean liner, according to legal documents seen by the Telegraph.
The submersible Triton collided with the rupture of the starboard hull of the Titanic in July 2019, when “intense and highly unpredictable currents” caused the pilot to lose control, the documents reveal.
The leader of the EYOS expedition confirmed to the Telegraph that there had been contact with the Titanic but that any damage to the remains would have been minor.
However, the delicate wreck is deteriorating so rapidly underwater that it could disappear completely in the next 40 years.
The 2019 expedition led scientists who said microbial life was eating away the shipwreck, including the captain’s bathtub, which had completely disappeared.

The Triton DSV Limiting Factor brought back the first 4K images of RMS Titanic, showing the extent of damage caused by corrosion of sea salt, bacteria that eat metals and deep currents.
“We tried to stay away from the Titanic, but we had to approach to deposit two scientific samples,” said EYOS expedition leader Rob McCallum.
Accidental We accidentally made contact with the Titanic once while we were near the starboard hull gap, a large part of the hull protruding.
‘Then we observe a red spot of rust on the side of the cube.
“But the submersible is covered in white fiberglass and is very delicate and expensive, while underwater it is essentially weightless, it is not a battering ram.”
The $ 35 million Triton DSV limiting factor is the only submersible in the world capable of diving to the deepest ocean depth: 36,000 feet.
Titan explorers, who were making the first manned trip to the remains of the Titanic in 14 years, said they discovered a partial collapse of the ship’s hull.
The porcelain bathtub of the RMS Titanic Captain Edward Smith had also disappeared completely.

The wreck state, which sank into two pieces, has deteriorated for a long time due to corrosion, biological activity and deep ocean currents.
US shipwreck company RMS Titanic Inc, which is the only entity legally authorized to dispose of elements of Titanic’s remains, alleges that the government agency knew that the EYOS submarine hit the Titanic, but officials who oversaw the dive did not report to court.
This was despite the fact that an observer from the government agency, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), was aboard the surface ship of the EYOS expedition.
Atlantic Productions is preparing to release a documentary of the dive sometime in 2020. The team captured the first 4K images of the ship. It is shown above on January 1, 1912.
Instead, it took EYOS more than five months to admit the collusion, in a report dated January 7, according to the Telegraph report.
The fact that NOAA never disclosed the accident to the court “raises a number of problematic problems,” according to RMST, which has demanded that EYOS produce video images of the collision or charges are filed.
RMST requires that a NOAA representative be convened to explain why the court and RMST were not informed before and the effect of the collision on the delicate shipwreck.
NOAA said it learned about the impact with the Titanic through the EYOS report.

WHY IS MARCONI WIRELESS IMPORTANT FOR TITANIC?
At the time of the inaugural voyage of the Titanic in 1912, most of the passenger ships operating in the North Atlantic had a Marconi wireless installation with personnel from Marconi Company operators.
The communication between the ship and the coast was by Morse code, as it was for conventional telegraphy.
In addition to communicating with other ships, the Marconi wireless connection also transmitted passenger messages, something new for first-class passengers.
While the Titanic collided with an iceberg on the night of April 14, 1912, Harold Cottam, operator of the nearby Cunard Carpathia line ship, was still awake.
He received the first distress signal from Titanic, sent by senior wireless operator Jack Phillips.
Carpatia turned immediately and traveled the 60 miles to the position given by the Titanic, a journey of almost four hours.
The new wireless equipment made possible a dramatic rescue of more than 700 survivors of the Titanic disaster.
Carpathia arrived in New York transporting the survivors four days after the sinking.

Next month, RMST will ask a judge for permission to recover artifacts from the wreck, including the Marconi wireless radio, which in 1912 was a world-leading communications device and transmitted the ship’s distress signal.
RMST, backed by Private Equity firms, wants to use three underwater robots to lift part of the roof to grab the Marconi wireless.
A document seen by the Telegraph said: “In the coming years, overhead costs are expected to collapse, potentiality will forever bury the remnants of the world’s most famous radio.”
RMST says it wants to preserve the relics in the wreck before they get lost in history.
However, the plans have been criticized as little more than an attempt to “steal and loot” the remains of Gavin Robinson, DUP deputy of Belfast East, where the Titanic was built.
Robinson told The Telegraph: “I think it is important that we support the government and make sure there are solid efforts in place that can frustrate the efforts of those who simply want to profit.”
“The idea that an established connection would justify stealing and looting what is essentially a tomb for sacrifice to those on board the Titanic, I think is completely wrong.”
Last week, Robinson criticized plans to open the Titanic’s hull and rescue the Marconi wireless connection in defiance of a new historic treaty between the United States and the United Kingdom to protect the iconic shipwreck.
The agreement will give both nations the power to grant or deny licenses to enter the remains and eliminate the artifacts found outside the hull before the wreck disappears forever.

Built by shipbuilders based in Belfast Harland and Wolff between 1909 and 1912, the RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat of its time.
Owned and operated by the White Star Line, the passenger ship sailed on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York on April 10, 1912.
The ship made two short stops on the road to its planned crossing across the Atlantic: one in the French port of Cherbourg, the other in the port of Cork, Ireland, where smaller vessels transported passengers in and out of the Titanic.
Almost five days after his trip, the Titanic collided with an iceberg around 23:40 local time, generating six narrow openings in the starboard hull of the ship, which is believed to have occurred as a result of the rivets in the snap.
It is believed that around 1,500 people were lost in the tragedy, including about 815 of the ocean liner passengers.
DISASTERS IN THE ATLANTIC: HOW MUCH MORE THAN 1,500 LOST THEIR LIVES WHEN THE TITANIC SUNKED
The RMS Titanic sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on April 15, 1912, after crashing into an iceberg during its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York.
More than 1,500 people died when the ship, which carried 2,224 passengers and crew, sank under the command of Captain Edward Smith.
Some of the richest people in the world were on board, including real estate mogul John Jacob Astor IV, great-grandson of John Jacob Astor, founder of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.
Millionaire Benjamin Guggenheim, heir to his family’s mining business, also died, along with Isidor Straus, the German-born co-owner of the Macy’s department store.
The ship was the largest afloat at the time and was designed in such a way that it must be “unsinkable.”
It had a gym on board, libraries, swimming pool and several restaurants and first class luxury cabins.
There were not enough lifeboats on board for all passengers due to outdated maritime safety regulations.
After leaving Southampton on April 10, 1912, Titanic visited Cherbourg in France and Queenstown in Ireland before heading to New York.
On April 14, 1912, four days after the crossing, he hit an iceberg at 11:40 p.m., ship time.
James Moody was on night watch when the collision occurred and received the call from the watchman, asking “What do you see?” The man replied: “Iceberg, dead ahead.”
At 2.20 in the morning, with hundreds of people still on board, the ship sank under the waves, taking many, including Moody.
Although repeated distress calls were sent and flares were launched from the decks, the first rescue ship, the RMS Carpathia, arrived almost two hours later, removing more than 700 people from the water.
It was not until 1985 that the remains of the ship were discovered in two pieces at the bottom of the ocean.
