Is The Ocean The World’s Biggest Mystery
It has been said that more is known about the Moon than what we know about the deepest parts of the ocean. The deepest part of the ocean is called the Challenger Deep and is located beneath the western Pacific Ocean in the southern end southwest of Guam. At 6.8 miles (11 km) deep, not a hint of sunlight reaches this place from above.
After years of preparation, filmmaker James Cameron descended 35,756 ft. (10,898 m) beneath the ocean’s surface in his 12-ton lime green submarine called Deepsea Challenger. The water temperature was just a few degrees above freezing temperature and put 8 tons of pressure per sq. in. on the filmmaker. That’s equivalent to three SUVs sitting on your toe, researchers have determined.
Just arrived at the ocean’s deepest pt. Hitting bottom never felt so good. Can’t wait to share what I’m seeing w/ you @DeepChallenge
