Robert Wernli, BEACON Co-Editor-in-Chief

The unfortunate loss of the Titan submersible earlier this year is a very sad subject that has been, and continues to be, addressed in multiple articles. There have been many questions regarding the development of the Titan by Stockton Rush and his company OceanGate. Prior to this accident, Stockton Rush was the Plenary speaker at OCEANS 2019 Seattle where he addresses his history and development philosophy.
