By now you’ve most likely have heard about the missing Titanic submersible vessel. 

A vessel that allows tourists to view the shipwreck from the famous Titanic, currently holds five people trapped inside the missing submersible. 

As a refresh, those five people include Hamish Harding, Shahzada Dawood and his son, Paul-Henri Nargeolet, and Stockton Rush who bought a ticket to board the vessel. 

Since the Titan, (the vessel) has gone missing, rescue and search teams are desperate to find the vessel holding the five individuals but there may be a glimmer of hope.

In a recent update according to CNN while citing an internal U.S. government memo, banging noises in 30-minute intervals were detected by crews over their sonars from the inside of the North Atlantic Ocean on Tuesday.

Additional sonar devices were deployed the same day that picked up even more banging noises, although it was unclear how long the second batch of noise lasted according to the internal memo.

“Additional acoustic feedback was heard and will assist in vectoring surface assets and also indicating continued hope of survivors,” reports CNN while quoting the internal document.

Does this mean this a sign of life?

Alongside the banging noises, a Canadian P-3 military aircraft reportedly saw sight of a white and rectangular object in the ocean.

However, the potential item has not yet been investigated due to the crews being occupied while probing the banging noises.

The P-3 aircraft shared the information about the sighting of the white object to the U.S. Navy “for further analysis which will be considered in future search plans,” in a recent tweet by the U.S. Coast Guard.

As the race continues to find the passengers, it is estimated that the five individuals will only have enough oxygen to last until 2:30 PM EST on Thursday, June 22.

Here’s hoping we have more updates soon.
