Challenger Deep Record Dive in the Mariana Trench

Post by shuize » Wed May 15, 2019 10:41 pm

A Dallas-based explorer has set a record for the deepest dive ever made in a submersible -- in the world's deepest ocean trench, his organization announced Monday.

Victor Vescovo reached a depth of 35,853 feet on April 28 during a dive to the bottom of Challenger Deep in the Mariana Trench, the deepest known point on earth. The dive was 52 feet deeper than any previous manned dive, Vescovo's Five Deeps Expedition said.

ETA: My mistake. I thought Challenger Deep was the name of his submarine. But I guess the title still works.

The press would have reported a plastic bag in any event.
