For the first time in 14 years, a manned submersible has visited the RMS Titanic wreck and revealed shocking deterioration.

EVERETT, Wash. — Let's just skip the rest of 2020, and start looking forward to some things next year!

OceanGate Expeditions will start bringing tourists deep into the Atlantic Ocean to see the Titanic in person. 

If you want to go, you will be trained as a "mission specialist" and will do hands-on roles in documenting important features of the ship and where it lies more than 12,000 feet below the ocean's surface. 

There are six missions scheduled for summer 2021 between late-May and mid-July. Each mission is 10 days long, where you will be in an untethered five-person submarine.

It's part of a multi-year effort to preserve the history of the Titanic, and document the rate of decay. 

OceanGate Expeditions is accepting applications for both 2021 and 2022. You must have certain qualifications to be accepted. It will cost you $125,000 if accepted for a "Mission Training and Support Fee."
