    and PRAYERS for those who perished aboard the TITAN – as explorers of the OCEAN
    Given water pressure per sq. inch & total darkness at 2.5 miles deep – this is akin to suborbital flights
    Back in my youth, I wanted to become an astronaut + ride the upside-down roller coasters of the day – lol
    but as we become older, it’s good to weigh risks & even become more CAUTIOUS 😉 🙂
    Going to visit the Titanic is maybe even a greater feat than going into space.
    And as 1 blessing, an explosion happened in nanoseconds v. the running out of air.
