Feet To Meters, Dollars To Shillings: A Titanic Submarine Story, Without US Units

Titanic Submarine

“The watercraft submerged on Sunday morning from its support vessel to travel to the Titanic wreckage which sits at a depth of 12,500ft. About an hour and 45 minutes later into the $750,000 trip, the Titan lost contact with its surface ship, the Polar Prince now 2.3674242 miles away.” This Titanic Submarine expedition is all people can talk about. Unfortunately, some of the metrics do not suit everyone.

I don’t mean to asode the main story and I hope that the explorers return safely from the Titanic expedition. However, even according to Google Search, there has been a significant increase in searches for “Titanic expedition in metric units” and “Titanic expedition in Kenyan shillings.

The expedition is a reminder of how we are increasingly interconnected. People all over the world are following the story, and they want to understand it in their own terms. However, they may be unable to fathom the severity because of the different units of measurement being used.

Infact, only three countries in the world use the US system of measurement. The United States, Liberia, and Myanmar. The rest of the world uses the metric system.

So without further ado, here is the information you have been searching for.
