But many relatives of the crew have lost hope since the navy announced Thursday that there had been an explosion on board the submarine, which experts said was likely linked to a problem with its batteries and would likely have been catastrophic.

Some have begun mourning for their loved ones, fearing that it is too late for them to be found alive.

An worldwide search will continue for a submarine that has been lost in the South Atlantic for nine days, Argentina's President says, despite hopes of finding its 44 crew members alive fading. "Even though the search has already been continuing for 11 days, it could not be ruled out that they [the crew] might be in a situation of an extreme survival", Balbi said at the press conference, as quoted the Todo Noticias broadcaster.

Argentina's navy has been fiercely criticized for its handling of the operation since first reporting on November 16 that the San Juan had not returned to base as scheduled. "The black box is the submarine", and it would have to be recovered before the causes of the explosion could be known.

"We are at a stage of hope and hopelessness at the same time", Balbi told reporters. Nicknamed as "the queen of the sea by her father, she studied at the Naval college in Ensenada".

The US, the UK, Brazil, Chile, Norway, Germany, Canada, France, Peru, Colombia, Russia and Uruguay have joined in the search for the missing Argentine Sub. A NASA research aircraft has flown over the search area but failed to spot anything.
