From outer space to the highest peak and, now to the bottom of the ocean, expeditionary expert joins OceanGate Expedition's 2021 Titanic Survey Expedition.

"Being part of the inaugural expeditionary team for the Titanic Survey Expedition is an amazing opportunity. I'm looking forward to demonstrating the cutting-edge submersible technology that will change how we explore our deep oceans," Scott Parazynski.

March 13, 2021 – Everett, WA: OCEANGATE EXPEDITIONS today announced Dr. Scott Parazynski as an Expeditionary  Expert who will join the 2021 Titanic Survey Expedition. 
A United States Astronaut Hall of Fame inductee, technology CEO and avid explorer, Parazynski has not only crewed five Space Shuttle flights and seven spacewalks but has also summited Everest and earned Level 1 submersible pilot credentials during his previous work with OceanGate Expeditions. 

“Challenging environments are incredible catalysts for innovation,” shares Dr. Scott Parazynski. “Being part of the inaugural expeditionary team for the Titanic Survey Expedition with my friend and colleague, Stockton Rush, is an amazing opportunity. I am looking forward to working with the OceanGate Expeditions team to demonstrate the cutting-edge submersible technology that has the power to change the way humans explore our deep oceans, understand our planet, and investigate other planets. Our home planet is extraordinary, and my bucket list will get an additional checkmark as part of this ground-breaking OceanGate expedition,” says Parazynski.


“Going to the bottom of the ocean presents many challenges also encountered in space exploration. It requires rigorous training, diligence, planning, and, most of all, dedication to safety,” says Stockton Rush, President, OceanGate Expeditions.

“Expeditionary environments are dynamic whether working in space or working in our deep oceans. Having experts on our team with proven track records in exploration is vital to our success in achieving our mission objectives. We will document the wreck of the Titanic in more detail than ever has been done before, and chronicle the biology, archaeology, and general condition of this important maritime heritage site,” continues Rush. Aspiring Mission Specialists interested in supporting the Titanic Survey Expedition should contact OceanGate Expeditions regarding requirements and qualifications.
