1500 died when the Titantic sank. How long until the sea bottom is littered with an equal amount of dead rich submarine adventurers? :man_shrugging:

Triton are a proper submarine company with lots of experience. They’re not trying to disrupt the “not dying”-market like a certain other company. So this is probably as safe as an expedition like that can be. This is not the worst thing a billionaire can spend their money on, in my opinion. Better than a Super PAC at least, and maybe we’ll get a few new technologies for research subs out of it.

Vimana Private Jets fly cars for the 1% around the world. CNN has intentionally blurred the image.

I wish the media would stop doing that. These aren’t the 1%. They’re the 0.000000001%, and even that is probably off by an order of magnitude
