BOSTON (AP) — About an hour and a half into its voyage, a missing submersible on an expedition to view the wreckage of the Titanic lost communications.

Officials say their listening devices didn’t detect the implosion, suggesting it happened before rescuers arrived. But questions remain about why there was such a time lag.
