  • Titanium is elastic and can adapt to ranges of stresses and pressures without permanent strain on the material.
  • Carbon fiber is stiffer and non-elastic, often prone to cracking.
  • Differences in the materials could have created a defect in the hull, triggering an instantaneous implosion.

  • It can generate its own oxygen & might stay submerged for a few months at a time.
  • It has enough power to leave port & come back to port under its own power.
  • It can drive independently to the bottom of the ocean and come back.
