The Titanic, the once-crowned "Unsinkable Ship" is making headlines right now as a crew of five who set out to explore the remains of the Titanic disappeared after 1 hour and 45 minutes of the dive, states the U.S. Coast Guard Northeast on Twitter.

OceanGate Expeditions is the company responsible for the tour. The cost for the trip is $250,000 per person. The trip takes interested tourists 380 miles offshore and 2.3 miles below the surface to explore the wonders of the sea, and most importantly the remains of the majestic ship.

While the main selling point for tourists is getting to experience firsthand the remains of the Titanic, most voyages do not tend to make it that far.

David Pogue, a CBS News Sunday Morning correspondent who was aboard a voyage on an OceanGate expedition last summer stated that during his trip technical difficulties made it impossible for the ship to find the wreckage for over three hours.

But this time, the command center has lost all contact with the ship. This is a much more worrisome problem. As the submersibles do not receive any information through GPS, their entire trip needs to be directed by the command center. This means that it would be impossible for the vessel to navigate the depths of the ocean if the connection with the command center is not reinstated.

The Coast Guard stated that the ship has 96 hours of sustained capability if there were to be an emergency on board. The rescue party is operating under this information and acting fast before any more problems emerge.

As of now, there is no telling if the vessel has moved to the surface of the water or it remains submerged, making the search for the missing vessel much more complicated.

The U.S. Coast Guard is working alongside Canadian authorities to make sure that the crew and the passengers are rescued in a timely manner.
