I am struck by the similarities with the Titanic disaster itself, where the captain was repeatedly warned about the presence of ice in front of the ship, but still headed towards a block of ice at full speed on a moonless night, causing the death of many people. It is a similar tragedy where warnings are ignored in the same place and location while diving occurs all over the world. I think it’s amazing, it’s really very surreal.
